This is called the Charles street.
The Charles street bar is a fab place to visit.
Always entertaining and full of fun.
Will be some good cabaret this sunday 8th for the annual charity bash.
FUN,fun ,fun.

I used to go to the pub with my then-boyfriend and the club with my mate Guy. The landlady was an interesting character. The club was pretty cool, when I used to go the DJ sent round a list so everyone could put down a few requests. The seating on the sides of the room with the dance floor in the middle was a bit reminiscent of a school disco, but didn't make it any less charming to me. I know when it shut a lot of people felt they had no choice but to trek up to London for a decent night out. Well missed.

It certainly is missed - by the brighton alternative community in general and by me and others who've commented here specifically!

Okay, so it had its drawbacks but it was a true institution and a legend in its day. But don't bother going there now, it's been sanitised and turned into a characterless 'Bar'.

The old Hungry Years was an institution; great music, no frills - how can anyone say it is not missed??? My friends & I travelled halfway across the country to go there whenever we could (not often enough). I used to be there every week when I lived nearby. Best rock club I've ever known. "Stuffed full" of smackheads & "dog rough women" is unfair; sometimes there were a few, but less than most clubs. The great thing about the Years was the music & the atmosphere - that's why we all went there ('91-2000) - certainly wasn't for the beer. We were all GUTTED when it closed. I didn't know it had been reopened or that there was a travelling show - thanks for the info.
