Glamorous Brighton to close its doors

Graham Robson March 13, 2024

Glamorous Brighton, which opened its doors last year – taking over the premises occupied by Le Village – is to close its doors for the final time on Monday, March 18.

In a statement published on Facebook, owner Matthew Eason said: “So then! I can now officially announce that Glamorous Brighton will be officially closing its doors on Monday, 18 March with the final of Brighton’s Got Talent. We will be open as usual until til then with the your normal weekly lineup!

“We have reached an agreement with Stonegate Pub Partners that this site is just too small to be a Glamorous and doesn’t work in its current form. Glamorous is about super late night clubbing and this just isn’t that.

“The Brighton gay scene already has a wide selection of venues and in this day and age some might say saturated with venues and there just isn’t the demand like there used to be! I don’t think we did a bad job with the size of the venue but unfortunately it’s not worked out!

”I would like to thanks Simon Ebers of who we took the venue over from when it was Le Village for the help and support him and his team have given us whilst we have been there and I wish him the best of luck with his other venues and that they continue to play an important part of the Brighton gay scene.

“Moving forwards Glamorous will continue with our other sites Glamorous Birmingham, Glamorous Coventry and Glamorous Oxford! And who knows if there will be another one in the future! Myself and Stonegate are always open to another one appearing in a city near you should the right place be available.

“Also thanks to Adam Hale from our straight pub The Grey Lantern Birmingham for holding the fort in Brighton whilst we run things down.

“And finally no for the millionth time I don’t want to open a Glamorous in Benidorm!”
