Me and my mate Pete went to Volks after getting absolutely spasticated seeking dusky at patterns. The venue stays open bare late so it’s good for the sesh. The downsides are the place is a bit horrible. It looks like everyone has had their soul sucked out of them by a dementor and no one in there has a LinkedIn profile. The music is drum and bass with a posh white girl mcing in a Jamaican accent. If you bought a man or woman you met in the club back to your place they might overdose or slit your throat. She was a bit spicy though actually. I left around 5.30 but my mate Pete stayed until 7 like a bit of a grub. The entry is £15. Overall though we would have to award it 5* as it’s what you expect and does what it stays on the tin.

Easily the best nightclub in Brighton. Unadulterated underground music, showcasing the best the city has to offer. Friendly door staff, great management and bar staff to boot. You can't get better than the Volks.

well what a weekender, 3 days of brilliant music, amazing people, from all over the world, and great beer. Every year, the first weekend of June all the skinheads come together and party hard. Symond Lawes at subcultz / concrete jungle, organizes the biggest and best skinhead gathering in England, every year doubling in size. right on Brighton seafront. google search subcultz and get yourself sorted. see you next time :)

This is my favourite club in Brighton, bar none. Definitely not for everyone, but if you're into amen inspired electronic music such as drum & bass, jungle, bassline, dub, etc, this is the place for you. Usually a top notch crowd who are very friendly, bouncers who are very fair, drinks are as you'd expect in a club (red stripe cans or more expensive stuff), and it usually has an absolutely amazing sound system and vibe. On decent nights it's open 'till 6AM, and often hosts amazing events by groups such as In The Face, Erisian Crew, etc. Usually if you pop down on a Friday or Saturday there is something decent going on, and it's quite easy to find an after party as you will meet a lot of friends for the night. There's sometimes the odd creepy guy, but female friends agree that it's better than most clubs, and people don't tolerate people being like that so it's actually much safer and friendlier.

If your idea for a night out is going for cocktails followed by commercial house in a large venue, avoid this place. If you are a stag/hen-do who want to get blasted and act like total jerks, this place is not for you. However, if you like heavy bass lines and PLUR, then this is the place for you.

I've been here many many times, many of which I can't remember, but from the few that I do, they've been some of the best nights I've had out in the UK.

Had a drink here while the kids were on the pier raising mayhem.
Pressed for time ,so we had no food.The Bar staff were good with the dog and gave it some water.The toilets were down in some night club.Bit spooky actually.Later the Dog lapped up the water and I lapped up the Grolsch
