As well as hosting music events, The Latest is regularly used for talks, spoken word events, film showings, club nights, art exhibitions, comedy nights and anything else you can think of! We host everything from the monthly talk-based Cafe Scientfique and the infamous Catalyst Club events, to music shows hosted by The Great Escape, burlesque performance nights, Fringe theatre, charity events, kids events and loads more.

Latest MusicBar is one of Brighton’s main live music venues.
Amongst the people who have performed here in the last few years are Amy Winehouse, The Kooks, Ben Howard, Rizzle Kicks, Jesca Hoop, Chris Difford (from Squeeze, pic below right), Newton Faulkner, Don Letts (pic above) and some jazz greats from Herbie Flowers (pic below left) and Larry Adler to Liane Carroll.
In the audience, we’ve had Fatboy Slim, Zoe Ball, Alistair MacGowan, Paul McCartney and so many Brighton residents. The reason people love the venue is because it is totally unique. Once you’ve visited the downstairs cabaret bar, you will always remember it.
