Not a pub but, Volks Club down on Madeira drive?
I've seen them doormen confiscate cocaine off someone, then try and sell it to someone else later in the queue!
Also attracts LOTS of London folk into Drum and Bass (not always the friendliest bunch) - ended up there last summer after a night out with my brother and there was a HUGE fight outside between a group of Portuguese lads and some London lads. Bottles smashing over heads, someone ripped apart a road sign and used it as a weapon. All of a sudden someone shouts "GUN" heard this almighty banging noise. Turns out someone had a glass bottle in their coat pocket but had their hand in their suspiciously and the noise was them hurling it at the doorman and it hitting the metal shutters on the shopfronts.
Never a dull evening out there.
Jolly Brewer, Ditchling Road
The Neville in Hove used to be a bit on the lively side a few years back too.
Have you seen the Muppet Show........
Misty's Bar in Church Road in Hove, sounds a bit dodgy going by the story in today's Argus.
Not heard of the place myself until today, anyone use this place?
