October 2013 – Eclectic Acquires Brighton’s Coalition Nightclub

In October 2013 Eclectic Bars added Coalition nightclub in Brighton to its portfolio of businesses. The 600-capacity club, located in the Kings Road Arches on the seafront, is open five nights a week and has earned an enviable reputation as one of the town’s leading music venues, playing host to some of the country’s best-known DJ’s and bands. In Brighton, Eclectic also owns Lola Lo, the Polynesian-themed nightclub on East Street, and the adjacent Madame Geisha.

“Coalition is highly successful. It trades extremely well and we have no plans to make any changes to its operational policy”, says Eclectic chief executive, Reuben Harley. “It’s a perfect fit with our existing venues and we are happy and proud to welcome the club and its excellent team of management and staff to the Eclectic family.”
