Brighton’s Club Revenge is now ‘not only the premier gay club on the south coast, but also the most stylishly designed gay venue in the UK’, say the designers behind the club’s 250 000 refit. The revamped venue has re-opened to the design of Chris Morrison and Max Eaglen’s Brighton group Morrison Eaglen Design. But the redesign has been a team effort, with lighting by John Boath and his consultancy BAV and graphics, including a new identity, by Jamie Freeman’s Message Design. The lighting, sound and interior designers collaborated from the outset, says Morrison, creating a design process with ‘no nasty surprises’. An upstairs bar area untouched in the redesign may be tackled at the end of the year.
