“ Marine Parade, Brighton. „
The Escape Club! That takes me back to Brighton's golden years. Of course, it's not been called the Escape Club for quite sometime, having changed its name to Audio about 4 or 5 years a go. The club, which is situated on Madeira Drive on Brighton seafront (opposite the Brighton Pier) is one of Brighton's best loved DJ and live act venues. Having played host to a startling array of big names over the past few years, including MGMT, Ellie Goulding, Friendly Fires, Kate Nash and many many more, this 200+ capacity venue has firmly established itself as an essential part of Brighton's live music scene.
Audio (formerly The Escape Club) is home to some of Brighton's most happening club nights, including Club NME and Supercharged, a dirty drum n' bass fueled mash-up , which draws attendees from around the country and has seen the likes of Pendulum, Chase and Status, DJ Marky and many more take to the decks.
The majority of events at Audio are 18+, though many of the live shows are 16+. The staff are friendly, but the doormen can be overbearing. The drinks are cheap or expensive, depending which night you go. I recommend tuesday or wednesday night, if you are looking for a good, cheap night out in Brighton. The club tends to stay open until about 3.00am and the upstairs bar is open during the day.
