The Jive Monkey is Brighton’s newest and most unique theatre & bar venue situated right in the heart of the city. Two floors of Monkey magic are on offer. A luxurious ground floor bar with comfortable sofa seating plus an upper floor featuring an intimate and multi-functional theatre space with tables, chairs, bar, all fully air conditioned plus state of the art sound and lighting.
The upper theatre lends itself to a more personal entertainment experience and many renowned performers and Jazz musicians are lining up to take their place on a stage that allows them to truly connect with their audience. Imagine a dark 1920’s speakeasy with the discretion of a gentlemen’s club plus the excitement of a Berlin cabaret and you’ll have some idea of the special atmosphere created in this hidden gem.
A diverse roster of entertainment is booked treating audiences to live music, cabaret, and performance art from the unusual and ‘tongue in cheek’ to the downright bizarre including screenings of cult movies with a heavy smattering of authentic live Jazz.
Open 5 nights a week The Jive Monkey is set to be a focus for performers and the first port of call for those who want quality entertainment or just a relaxed drink in a non- pretentious but glamorous setting.
A full menu of wines, beers, ales, spirits and cocktails are on offer making this a great place to meet for pre or post theatre drinks and cabaret or just the most decadent place to meet with friends. The Jive Monkey also offers a happy hour from 6.30pm until 7.30pm.
