about The Edge & The Box Bar

The Edge is Southampton's only gay nightclub! We have been open since way back in 1995, and constant refurbishment keeps us up-to-date with our clientele! The Box Bar now serves fabulous cocktails from 4pm daily, where you can get free entry to the club too! We aim to provide a fun, safe & entertaining night out for everyone!

Our main dancefloor has a huge lighting wall and lit stage, with a sophisticated black bar. A pool table provides a break from dancing the night away from our award winning DJ's! Another bar upstairs has no music, with plenty of seating booths to relax into. A VIP Lounge has been added, providing the perfect place for your celebrations!

The Box Bar, upstairs at the rear of the building, is open every day from 4pm serving a huge range of drinks - from cocktails to wines, and coffee to premium spirits. Free entry to the club can be gained by visiting the bar most nights of the week! Music videos play the entire time, with video DJ's on certain nights!

A huge outdoor area, complete with a fully stocked bar which is open throughout the summer months, gives our smokers plenty of room! A very large covered area keeps the rain off in every season! Rosie's Diner provides juicy, mouth-watering BBQ meat every Wednesday, Friday & Saturday too - plus veggie options. Forget grabbing a kebab on your journey home - get your food right here before you leave!

All of the team here at The Edge & The Box Bar look forward to seeing you soon, and we thank our loyal customers for their support in returning to us, week in, week out!

The Edge & The Box Bar has been voted for in The Golden Handbag Awards as Gay Brighton's Favourite Out Of Town Venue, and we are very happy to have won in 2011, 2013, 2017 & runners up in 2015! The annual awards are a perfect way to raise thousands of pounds for charity, whilst giving credit to those who work so hard too! Our DJs, hosts, security & bar staff have all been winners, runners up & nominated over the last 5 years too! We hope that we keep producing the best nights out and that we continue to have such great support- thank you all!
