Slap-bang in the middle of the Lanes, the Black Lion is a lively late-night venue, with a cavern-like feel. Early in the week, you can expect to find live music and staff with great taste in what to play and when. From Thursday onwards the best DJs in Brighton spin rare vinyl spanning from '60s Motown and Northern Soul, Funk, Ska, Mod Revival, '80s Anthems, Hip Hop, Breaks, Electronica, Punk, Rock and classic and modern Indie. The Black Lion is a fine example of a pub that effortlessly transform itself from busy day to busy night. But however busy it gets, it retains a friendly atmosphere with comfy sofas, free wireless internet connection and photography by local artists on the walls.
