The Pub Tour makes its’ first trip outside of London on 21 October with a visit to The Blind Tiger in Brighton.
A stylish 280-capacity venue, the venue opened in 2011 (after previously being Hectors House) and hosts a range of music, from African Soukous to 50’s Big Bands. The Blind Tiger holds regular quiz nights and the odd spot of cabaret, ensuring a good night out for all.
Positioned next to the University of Brighton Faculty of Arts, Grand Parade and opposite Victoria Park, it’s open from 8am until late. Students are coaxed awake with coffee and breakfast in the morning, while the bar is stocked with an unusual menu of beers, cocktails and ciders for later, with friendly service to be enjoyed throughout the day.
The venues’ recent renovation has allowed the pub to be even better suited for performances of live music, with a new stage offering great views for all and a custom-designed soundsystem (though of course we’ll be acoustic). Its unconventional decor and excellent lighting make the Blind Tiger great for intimate gigs or larger events. Certainly we reckoned so from our visit there a few months back – and the venue also basks in being rated one of the top two venues in Brighton on Tripadvisor! As the Brighton Source says, “Jesus, it might just be perfect”.
The Night Shift comes to The Blind Tiger Club on 21 October, with advance tickets for just £5.
