2. Eclair Fifi and Joy Orbison @ Patterns

Patterns will be hosting yet another huge night to plunge us into the New Year. To play tribute to the building’s past as a hotel in the early 1900s, Patterns will be transforming the ground floor with a decadent makeover inspired by Overlook Hotel’s Gold Room Bar. Expect smooth shades of red, lights down low, shimmers of gold and classic tipples to see you deep into the night.

Joy Orbison and Eclair Fifi will be taking the reigns this year, providing hours of genre-bending sets, keeping you raving into the early hours of the morning.

To say an extra thanks for the past twelve months, Patterns are offering ticket holders that arrive before 9pm two drink tokens that will be exchangeable for prosecco on the night. Or if you buy a group ticket, you’ll receive a cocktail each and a bottle of prosecco for the group.

@Patternsbtn is a club, bar and terrace on the seafront in Brighton, UK. A few years ago we were commissioned to design the interior with a brief for robustness – to stand up to a high volume of party-goers – and a comfortable, welcoming environment for daytime drinking and eating. We composed a series of large scale spatial interventions, bespoke terazzo and details such as flying speakers and mirrored panels to create the sense of an expansive, live music venue. #patternsbarandclub #brightonlife #brightonseafront #livemusicvenue #adaptability #fluidspaces #interiorarchitecture #interiordesign #industrialdesign #designproducts #materialsourcing #lightingdesign #hospitalityinteriors #crossdisciplinarydesign #spatialdesign #designnarrative #designconcepts #criticaldesign #designprojects #howwelivetoday #lightspaces #musicspaces #materialsmatter #studioaltshift #terazzo #flyingspeakers #mirroredpanels
