Since opening in 2015, Patterns has firmly established itself both as a safe space for Brighton’s underground club culture and a small live music venue that punches above its weight. Built on the grounds of 10 Marine Parade on the former site of an art deco hotel, the building has a deeply ingrained musical heritage, including Ted Potters Music Bar and the infamous Escape Club.


With a hand-built DJ booth upstairs, powered by a bespoke Ohm PA, the ground floor is a hangout of lush sound where you can knock back cocktails, craft beers and enjoy a varied programme of music and culture events. Stripped back to expose original features, the light-drenched ground floor is where monolithic mirrors meet with industrial concrete and green neon dances off Twin Peaks-esque panelling.


The basement is designed purely for dancing and ‘lose yourself’ gig moments, with sonic experience at the top of the agenda. After testing two of the world’s leading systems head-to-head in the space, we opted for an impeccable L’Acoustics sound system – a key component for live acts and DJs alike.


Patterns South facing wood-decked terrace is built for sunshine and sipping. An urban oasis of tropical potted palms, bright pastel coloured furniture and upcycled oil drum tables, the elevated space boasts unrivalled sea views. Come nightfall the twinkling lights of Brighton Pier provide an iconic sightDuring the summer months, the terrace plays host to weekly free Saturday ‘Summer Sizzler Terrace Parties’ from 2pm until late with resident DJs playing summer jams onto the terrace.

‘It might not be on a rooftop, but hipster hangout Patterns boasts one of the coolest outdoor spots in the city’ – Evening Standard
