Qype: The Funky Fish Club in Brighton


Generally speaking I hate nightclubs, but Funky Fish isn’t your typical club. Whilst most Brighton clubs are full of drunken students out on the pull, this place tends to attract a very different crowd. Of course, you still get your students, but you’ll also find groups of men and women in their sixties and every age in between who are just out for a damn good boogie.

The music isn’t your usual hip-hop/R’n’B rubbish that too many nightclubs pump out on a Friday and Saturday night either – it’s 60s/70s soul, funk, blues and motown. Everyone’s grooving and everyone’s having a great time – it’s like being in a time warp. Plus, there’s usually this fantastic old guy in a white suit that flings himself around the dance floor with gay abandonment (generally at groups of women). I guarantee he’ll bring great joy to your evening.

There’s one more reason that I love a night out at Funky Fish, as well as the fabulous atmosphere, highly entertaining dancing and friendly clientele. This reason is vodka slush puppies. Think that sounds foul? Well, you’re probably right. But frankly, I find the combination of alcohol, blue food colouring and brain freezes impossible to resist.
