Patterns to open in May with a unique creative visionComment
One of Brighton's best loved music venues will reopen 13th May 2015 unveiling a new name and redesign, giving the iconic seafront and its musical mecca a new lease of life.
Having been at the forefront of Brighton’s nightlife for thirty years under various guises, Patterns will follow in the footsteps of electronic music hub Audio. Expect a vibrant space for creative crowds with a thirst for quality street food & drink and world-class musical talent from the live and electronic underground.
Now under the curation of Mothership Group, Patterns will remain a definitive source of cutting-edge music, offering a 360° experience, seven days a week. Its redesign will facilitate a journey from lunchtime to late night revelry via the terrace, bar and club. The south-facing sea view terrace, perfect for after-work drinks, also provides a spot for lazy summer afternoons. A new menu of cocktails, carefully selected wine, beers (local, international, draught, craft and bottled), and an extensive spirits selection will be available alongside seasonal specials. Fuelling the party spirit, varying street food will be on offer with guest appearances from local culinary talent.
The ground floor’s overarching style will highlight the building’s original art deco features and complement these with a nod to Bauhaus design represented through geometric stalactite structures, coloured glass and oversized convex mirrors reflecting the entire space. Adding a touch of nostalgia, Patterns will be a warm and inviting space with a focus on providing a superior listening experience, be it live music or mellow DJ sets.
Friday and Saturday nights will see Patterns operate as an all-encompassing venue ready for the weekend’s debauchery. The basement will remain the hedonistic heads down club it’s known for with heavy investment made on upgrading the sound system, as well as increased accessibility and improved facilities throughout. Exploring the realms of house, techno and future-facing electronic, Patterns will bring the most eminent DJs, promoters and live talent to this historic club space, not forgetting a carefully selected family of resident DJs.
Patterns was previously known as Audio and Escape Club, where legendary artists such as Daft Punk, The Stone Roses, The Chemical Brothers, Carl Cox and Paul Oakenfold have all graced the premises. Honouring this rich musical heritage, Patterns marks a new era for the venue.
In the words of Heather Pistor, Creative Director for Mothership Group
“We're excited to have taken on such a well-respected Brighton music venue. The dream is to create a thriving social hub for drinking, dancing, hanging out with friends but most of all a place for forward-thinking music. Local promoters and artists will sit side-by-side with national promoters and headline acts, producing what we believe to be an innovative programme of club nights to rival the top clubs across the country.”
