“ King's Road Arches, Brighton. „
I went out with the people from my new job last night. We went to the ASK restaurant in Brighton and then on to The Zap Club. Its the first time I've been clubbing in Brighton and I can tell you it wont be the last! The local club where I live is a rip off, I was expecting a club on Brighton seafront to be even worse, but I ended up not spending a penny! (This was on a Thursday night, someone told me it was a student special night...so don't blame me f you don't get the same deal!). We got to the door, entry was free and they gave us 2 vouchers each to get a barcardi and mixer (not my ideal choice of drink, but you don't say no to a free drink!). There was people walking round giving out more vouchers, if you play your cards right you can have a steady stream of drinks all night!. There was a table in the corner with free food, just small Thai nibbles but free none the less (we had already eaten...we wish we had gone there first!) The club itself isn't the nicest place I've been to, but it serves its purpose. Being in the arches on the sea front its all long and winding corridors to find anything, it took me 5 minutes to find the toilets. The floor and walls we brick and concrete...painted in odd places. But when you've had a few and it fills up you don't really notice. The music is very bassy and 'underground'. There were a few chart songs from the mid 90's and earlier ranging from "I wanna jazz it up" to Michael Jackson's Bad. There are 2 different dance rooms playing slightly different music. The first one which you see as soon as you walk in was more break beat with people jumping around like nutters. If you climb the stairs and go through a door you come to the other dance floor, a lot smaller but the music was slightly better (in my view anyway). There was a good mix of people in the club, young and old (well...middle aged). There were some gays there, but again it was mixed, everyone was having a great time! There are a lot of drugs around, the stoners were blatant. One woman was trying to grab something in the air that wasn't there and was caressing the wall but everyone was just there to have a good time and everyone was! :o) The Zap is a club with a really great atmosphere. It wasn't that busy when we were there (it was a Thursday). Apparently at the weekends its packed. If your ever in Brighton on a Thursday night, I recommend The Zap!!
The club is right on Brighton beach, in an old fishermen's arch & many a morning has witnessed mad clubbers spilling out of The Zap, straight into the sea! (nutters) Under the arches are three rooms, four bars, two dance floors, podiums a plenty, a wicked Turbosound system & state of the art lighting. Add to this the cream of local, national & international DJs & promoters & you have the best club in Brighton! First & foremost The Zap is famous for its fantastic House nights, but the club is also host to a diverse range of music policies & nights, which is a reflection of Brighton itself - part of what makes it so unique. Throughout the week the music ranges from 70s disco & funk & 80s classics, to cutting edge drum n bass, break beat, hip-hop, dirty techno, big beat & loads more! Whatever the music The Zaps reputation is one of quality & the club aims to provide a top night out for everyone. The weekend at The Zap sees a selection of the best house DJs in the world, with the infamous Pussycat Club kicking off on Friday nights & the all-new Casino storming on Saturday nights.
