Change in Door Prices... Membership is still 5.00 for the year, but it is then free entry, unless there is a special event. Guests are 1.00. We've also relaxed the dress code, so if you want to bring non-goths with you, thats fine, as long as they come in with Goths! For more info, check out and the metrofox forum at or e-mail us at

Very friendly, non-cliquey goth club. Been going over 2 years and were welcomed from the start. Variety of old and new 'goth' music played and no Marilyn Manson thank feck... Dress code and vigilant staff ensure no 'problem individuals' cause any aggro either. I love the place...

Now Edwards is no more(Burnt down last night,in case you didn't know)Hex in the city is the west midlands ONLY weekly goth night. Three years on and still going stong(mostly).But Hex needs more regular punters. YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE NOW BRUMGOTHS! Still easily the best and friendliest goth club I've ever been to.Just the best music,mostly trad and long may it be so.

Hex. Is. Brilliant. A DJ who actually plays requests (and is actually honest about not playing them if he's that way inclined), a lighthearted atmosphere, a fine and friendly bunch of regulars and a landlady who sees her goff customers as more than just a weekly moneyspinner. It doesn't get much better than this...
