The Perfect Brighton Hen Do
The Perfect Brighton Hen Do
There’s SO much to do that you’ll never cram Brighton and all it’s possibilities into one weekend so we’ve narrowed it down to the perfect selection of girly, boozey and action packed activities.
There’s no point heading to any of the big clubs early in the night as they only really get started at about 11pm. We recommend this as the perfect little bar to get the party started and kick the night off! It’s one of these bars you can dance in which is a must for Hen Night locations. There’s often a DJ playing and you’ll soon be ready to hit the seafront where you’ll find the majority of Brighton’s famous venues. Check out the Mesmerist
‘Its Still 1985’
Brighton is home to so many bars and clubs that there’s almost no point doing any planning. Brighton will suck you in and the city will plan your night for you but it’s always nice to have the top recommendations from the people in the know. Popular with the locals, visit The Haunt’s famous 80s night, ‘It’s Still 1985‘, where you can guarantee the girls a top night at one of Brighton’s most acclaimed clubs!

You’ve warmed up your liver and you had some great food. It’s now time to get the party started:
Coalition – Located on the seafront under the arches, with a heaving outside area in the summer months. Loads of live DJs throughout the year playing house, dance and pop.
Green Door Store – Located under the main train station. It is a true ‘hang out’ playing all sorts from 60s retro to 90s pop. Loved by so many Brightonians with a really friendly chilled out feel.
Patterns – Just back from the seafront by the pier. A well established Brighton venue spread over two floors. Downstairs for the music, lasers, strobes and smoke machines. Upstairs for the more chilled out. Great outside terrace and drinks menu.
Casablanca – A really popular venue for Brighton locals. Live music all week and weekend sets from the house band. Playing a huge range of covers old and new. Has a real shabby but amazing fun feel.
This is just a few ideas to get you started. There is plenty more to be doing out in town. Why not try an unplanned hen do? Just arrive and hit the streets, there are plenty of hidden gems you will stumble across?
