Proud Cabaret Brighton

49 user reviews 4

They may be one of Brighton's most glitzy vintage retreats, but that doesn't mean that Proud Brighton team don't want to get a little freaky on a Friday night in the city. Showcasing some of the finest burlesque and cabaret dancers in town, you'll be able to dabble and dance in one of the rowdiest parties in the city. Even partake in Proud Brighton's very own 'Wheel of Fortune' if the night so takes you. 

@ Sticky Mike's Frog Bar on Every Wednesday

Those of you with a penchant for analog sticks, those with a level of button bashing to be found in their blood and those of you that know your way around the fire level on Sonic; prepare for an arcade style throw down. Join I Am Arcade at Sticky Mike's every Wednesday for a sweet selection of games consoles, beers and tunes the like.
