Top night out

Went and saw the UK Foo's play here on Friday, great little venue, friendly, reasonable and good selection of drinks and you can 'vape' inside. Excellent night out!

The title of my review says it all. It's a cool venue and we had a good night, but wow, the drinks were damn expensive! We would definitely go back if they had a good act on, but we'd definitely warm up at a cheaper bar 1st.

Concorde 2 is a great venue for live music. Ideal location (Madeira Drive), so no neighbours to complain about the noise. Big long bar, with helpful & speedy bar staff. Reasonably priced drinks. Great acoustics. Great venue

Concorde 2 has definitely improved significantly since my last visit. I used to attend gigs on the regular between 2004-2012 and I always recalled sticky floors, horrendous loo's and an overkill amount of low end from the sound system. Needles to stay things have dramatically improved the venue appears more spacious and clean the live feed monitor in the bar/lobby... More

Stage, bar, toilets (sort of). As a rock venue it works. Pretty it ain't. Good parking, great location, well run.

I've been to the Concorde 2 many times before but never for a Gig. I had the pleasure of seeing MØ on 11th and what a performance she gave! The venue itself is small and gives you that personal feeling, although it was hot the staff kept the doors open which helped. The price for the Gig was unbelievably cheap... More

We were in Brighton for a couple of days and saw that The Beat were playing Concorde 2 on the Friday night. As an exiled Brummie I just had to go. The place itself is just perfect for a band drawing in a couple of hundred people. Bar prices were pretty reasonable and the room itself was ideal if a... More

went to see Brian Jonestown Massacre - 1st time to the venue, not the first time to see the band. Great sound (for venue - not for band - Anton had some issues apparently) Drinks reasonably standard for a UK music venue - perhaps better than some other places.....great night out
