“ King's Road Arches, Brighton. „
This review is about NYE 2011. Me and five friends paid £150 for VIP TICKETS after just one hour one of our group was asked to leave for dancing with his partner ( they are gay) they were not dancing in a sexual way at all. Despite being very polite with the door staff as we all work in thee NHS one of the party as we were leaving was thrown to the ground without reason or cause. Not gay friendly at all. If you value your safety don't go as the door staff are thug and the management apparently like to ask people to leave to make room for more paying guests.Overpriced, dreadful place
Honey Club Brighton,
7 bars in 5 rooms, Different Genre of Music in Each, Fantastic Atmosphere, Brilliant Drink Deals & Loads of Big nights!!
What more could you want???
I have been here many times and always had a fantastic night! the place to be in brighton on either a week night or a weekend.. From student nights to big named DJ's on the weekend there is always something for everyone. The only place in brighton that is still A 5 STAR CLUB!
Drinks, The deals are smashingly cheap on the student nights and a little more expensive on the weekend but you pay for the experiance.
Entry, Entrance fee is always a resonable amount never OVER priced and well worth the free shot aswell,
Staff, Friendly bar & door staff, seem to be polite and smiling so thats the main thing :)
Overall, Always have a fun night with friends or just people dancing around, Deffinatly going back..
The Honey Club Brighton has to be one of the best clubs I have ever been to. There were 7 bars and 5 rooms so I never had to wait more than a minute to be served. The staff are friendly and entertaining showing me and my friends some of their bar tricks with ice cubes. They have some of the best Djs in the world playing on a saturday night and during the week they have ridiculously cheap drinks promotions. It's safe to say that I will be returning again and again and again!
Honey club has been trying to make up for its rubbish reputation but it can't escape its regular clients that are low class idiots.
It now lets handbags back in the club but thats at your peril as safety hasn't improved and they're probably be nicked. The club is full of drunken idiots and scummy looking people.
If you decide to enter and fancy a drink you will be waiting a very long time at the bar as the staff are not the quickest people.
If the bar staff don't annoy you then there is every possibility the bouncers will with their over-bearing nature and heavy handed ways. But be warned DO NOT talk back to them or piss them off in any way as they will either get you arrested or 'take you round the corner'
I generally go for student nights which means that everyone is drunk and if your with the right people you will have fun, but you probably will have more fun elsewhere.
To summarise......what a load of sh*t!! We were offered 4 free V.I.P tickets and were promised a free bottle of champagne because of the bouncers' w*nker attitude last time we went, the bottle was hardly enough to fill 2 glasses let alone 4! And the V.I.P room was hardly that, it was filled with people who looked like they belonged in prison, either that or in a brothel!
They take your handbag on arrival and give you a little pouch to put your stuff in, which kept ripping, and once your inside the main club things dont get better, the music is crap, the place is too packed. If you want a good night in Brighton, go to Creation, HoneyClub is a waste of money and time, and is the biggest heap of sh*t i have ever come across!
A truly awful club - terrible atmosphere rude incompetent staff and bouncers. No handbags allowed in club (leave them in a tent outside) You are not allowed to put your coat down as the bouncers collect them and throw them into 'lost property' The cloakroom que is 3/4 hour long and streches onto the dancefloor! Try Funky Buddha/ Zap/ Audio for a real taste of Brighton & top tunes.
Friday night at the honeyclub for Hed Kandi was definitely not value for money. Good venue but awful customer service from the security and the bar staff who treat you like scum. We will not be going again. Brighton has a lot better venues.
For me the Honeyclub is like going home. I've been there so many times it's just like meeting up with a huge group of friends, in fact Goodfellas springs to mind. From the door people to the bar people to the bouncers to the guys in the cloakroom, every single person who works there has a wicked time and they're more than happy to spend some of that time with you. From uplifting house to hard house to funky house, a week in the life of the honeyclub is a clubbers paradise, who needs Ibiza or when Brighton beachfront beckons. And people flock from miles around to get in on the Honeyclub vibe, I met people there who had come from London, Cambridge, Manchester and Cardiff, to name but a few. Very wise discerning people in my opinion. The Honeyclub is not the biggest place in the world, it's just along the beach from the Zap which with it's warehouse type dimensions makes the Honey look like a baby of a club, but it's definitely the friendliest club I’ve been to in Brighton - and I’ve been to a few. Long may the success of the Honeyclub continue, any feature on clubbing in the UK which doesn't include the Honey is depriving it's readers of a truly great clubbing experience!
Fast becoming Brightons most fashionable Friday night out this is a Chic club promotion for boys and girls who like to party in style. With new luxurious "Queens Lounge" hosted by Miss Dolly Rocket and her bottomless bottle of Vodka! Sumptuous new VIP area. Stunning new décor sets every month.

Check the Five dancers out, Paula and Nathan¹s performance would go well at Manumission, whilst Mark and Andy seem to be having a competition to see who can wear the least clothing as long as it works with a cowboy hat! Storming Saturday Night attracting a friendly up for it crowd. Arrive early to get in!. Hard House in the main room with vocal uplifting house in the VIP Bar.
Do you like progressive trance or hard house? If the answer is yes, then get yourself down to Brighton's premier (and recently refurbished) night club: The Honey Club 2 (HC). Situated on the sea front, amongst many other popular clubs, the HC stands tall, above the rest by offering a unique combination of escapism coupled with an electric atmosphere that leaves you wondering how clubbing can get any better!? I have been to many clubs throughout the UK and much of the world, but the HC is the only club that I religously return to - week after week. Although there are other nights and plenty of variety in the music the club plays, it is a Saturday night when you are assured of a night to remember. . . everytime! At £12 (non members) to get in, it is a little steep - and if large groups of males are not accomponied by a few girls/ girl friends - there is little chance you will get in. Some find this attitude "snooby", but I find that you know you are getting a balanced crowd of people inside the club - and everyone is there for a good time. I have even heard that, recently, it has become a "super club" - where they get all the latest tracks (known as white labels) before the other clubs and pubs. By the time you hear them on the radio, the HC has long since stopped playing them and moved on. . . . . .There really is no other place like it in the South East! Dress, for a Saturday at least, is quite casual - although the management do like you to 'make an effort' - which many people do!
