Casablanca Jazz Club

Party hearty schmoozing and jazz nights reign supreme in Brighton's Casablanca Jazz Club where glitzy lights and high heels are replaced with basement shindigs and dusty ceilings. Authentic in their nights and local in their musical names, Casablanca keeps music in a traditional light, boasting intimate atmospheres and a barrage of sound come sun down.

Ah, something for the more sumptuous of music lovers. You may not have a penchant for rowdy basement bars and guitars strewn across the stage, but how about some of the finest cocktails in Brighton and a smattering of sultry jazz? Host to a selection of live jazz and music every Thursday night, Bohemia slow things down a little for a night of mixology mastery and smooth sounds.
