DescriptionHmm, well this is one for when desperate, or if you absolutely must go somewhere after the pub, principally on a Thursday. Then you may find the odd fellow goth, an isle amongst the sea of Nu metallers, Indies and other trendies attending.

Despite the music, Sindrome on Tuesdays can be fun if you're with a group of friends, primarily due to the ridiculously cheap bar prices - 1.50 a pint and 50p a shot of vodka. Apart from that, the crowd are generally laid-back and friendly, though, obviously, mainly metallers.

Better selection of goffik stuff on a thursday nite, DJ Angel does a reasonably good set, but they tend to play a lot of the same stuff each week. I've never had a bad night there either.

The Gloucester has now been refitted inside -I haven't been in there yet but apparently its a lot slicker now with a raised stage for bands to play. Although I'm not sure I like the idea of the Gloucester losing its slightly grubby ambience, I am keen on the addition of a medium-sized venue, numbers of which brighton is sadly lacking in.

The Thursday night Yearz2K/Metal Playground thing doesn't exist anymore. I think they have live bands on Thursdays instead now, but probably no one good so far....

There's been about two live bands since the refurb - but usually it's just closed. Perhaps an opportunity for a Gothy/Metal night here ?

as far as i know if anyone has a good idea for thursday nights they can go to the manager.

It's a great club if you like hip-hop and nu-metal.. I tend to use it as a late night drinking session. The DJ once refused to play ministry, and then reluctantly played about 2 minutes of stigmata! Grr... Brigh on a goth night!

I personally enjoy the gloucester - the odd decent choon, lots of nice, friendly people and cheap drinks. Epsc Tuesday nights - i recommend going with a big group of mates and get pissed of ya head!

this place was better before they 'did it up' it had character before. and it used to play a lot harder stuff before as i remember.. now nothing but mainstream nu-metal. (spelling new, nu is not kool!!)

The Gloucester rapidly went down hill after the re-vamp: BUT after all that fussing around they forgot to update the playlist...I don't mean to offend anyone, but a lot of people will agree with me on that one. Well at least it's FREE to get in all night now and vodka is stupidly cheap (50p a shot) & Snakebite + black is 1.50....cheers! :o)

Yea this club is ok, used to be really good but its losing it's edge! Its free to get in and cheap drinks and a friendly atmosphere! Should try to play more alt music and not the dance stuff they play tho, its defanatly worth a visit tho!

Got worse and worse and then just died quietly one night. I hear some dust mites and a few lonely bats live there now!

Tuesday night's arent bad though for alternative music and the drinks are very cheap. 1.50 for a pint is nearly as good as Pav Tav!
