Welcome to Lewes Con Club, a private, mainly volunteer-run, not-for-profit social club and live entertainment venue, open every day to its members and non-members.
Situated in the centre of the beautiful historic town of Lewes, county town of East Sussex, with its easy access to and from the city of Brighton and Hove and a direct rail link to London, Lewes Con Club consists of a large bar area, opening up to a function room with a professional music stage. Beyond the bar is a spacious garden and barbeque area.
The Con Club's CAMRA award winning bar is managed to a high standard with real ales, featuring guest ales and of course our local Harveys Best Bitter, plus other beers, lagers, ciders, wines and spirits.
Next to the bar is the function room for music, meetings and live entertainment that can seat up to 150 people. The room includes a fully equipped sound stage with digital mixing desk and a professional lighting system suitable for music and other events.
Members can hire the function room for private parties, meetings etc. The club also has a professionally equipped kitchen able to cater for parties and other events.
There are regular live music events on Friday nights, most of which are free to club members. There are also frequent live music events on other days of the week and on the last Sunday afternoon of each month there is 'Music in the Bar'. Non-members are welcome on all music nights and Sunday afternoons. There are also regular comedy and other events. Please note that some events do have an entrance fee.
COVID-19 UPDATE (28.06.2020)
The Government has announced that from the 4th July 2020, pubs and bars are able to open in England if they comply with guidelines.
We are presently assessing these guidelines and to establish if it’s safe for customers and staff and practical to open the Club.
Whilst we were initially excited, the guidance permits only background recorded music and certainly nothing live or at any volume, all drinks must be served at tables, etc. We need more time and will not be able to open on the 4th July. We will provide further updates within the next couple of weeks regarding re-opening.
The Club will be back, we are booking future gigs and have reinstated the What’s On Page. Thanks, best wishes and good health to everyone from the Con Club team.
