Clubs Review Website
Well its been a while since I posted anything here. Thats mainly because I've been working on something else:
This is a review/database website covering pubs, bars and clubs across the whole world! Take a look - you can become a user for free and can then submit reviews, photos or add a pub/bar/club that isn't already in the database.

Fat Boy Slim New Year Party?
Well, plans are underway for Norman to repeat the party on 1/1/07, but it wouldn't be a free party for all. The likelyhood is that 25,000 people would be admitted. The council want it to be a paid entry gig, while Fatboy wants it to be free. Seems like there is little recognition that during the festival and for Pride that Brighton caters to 70,000+ people at free events.
It may be just for Brighton residents, who may have to show a household bill to buy a ticket.
What The Independent says about Brighton Clubbing
If you can fight your way through the sun-seekers, the Lanes shopping labyrinth is made for students - but priced for trustafarians. Cost is the biggest drawback; from pints to pashminas, the city's not for the faint of wallet. You get what you pay for in Brighton though, (except the glorious pebble beach, which is free), and, with clubs like Revenge, Concorde 2 and Funky Buddha to get your feet moving, it's worth shelling out that bit more.
Best for: Dancing queens
Cost of a pint: £2.75
Cost of accommodation: £70/pw
Music scene: ***
Pulling potential: Smile boys - you get 1.54 girls each.
Notable alumni (Brighton): Fatboy Slim; Alison Lapper, Jo Whiley, Rachel Whiteread Notable alumni (Sussex): Ian McEwan; Bob Mortimer
"Not many people know the true magic of Brighton. Come here, and its secrets will be revealed. When you settle here, you see that the modern British notion of community - of knowing more about Big Brother evictees than your neighbours - has a lot to do with a lack of imagination. In Brighton, adventure and anarchy still exist. With a range of eclectic nightlife, tasty food and nature all around, the place has something to excite everyone. More than anything, Brighton has passion. It is the microcosm of the world we want to live in, where multiple community groups are fighting for a better society. Come on in folks! The doors are wide open! " Dan Glass, President of the Sussex University students' union
