Rockwater Hove sells membership cards for £ 750 Brighton News

ROCKWATER will introduce a ‘residence permit’ of £ 750 per year.

The owner of the Hove seaside venue, Luke Davis, said the card “just offers priority access to specific events” and aims to ensure that locals get priority over “off the towers.”

The announcement led some residents to fear that the place would become “rich on the roof, poor on the pebbles”.


However, Davis says no areas of the building will be closed to people without a map.

He insisted that cardholders will not have priority on the rooftop terrace or the main building – known as the lodge.

He said, “Rockwater Hove is – and always will be – a facility built with community at its heart.

“The Rockwater Residence Card does not in any way take away from this.

“No area of ​​the building is reserved for residence card holders, so the whole community will always be able to join us on the terrace, in the restaurant and bar, on the roof terrace and in the lodge, as well as book events private with us to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and everything in between. ”

The place, formerly called The View, was reduced to bricks after its takeover.


Last year the cabins on the promenade sold beer and take-out snacks and there were also Covid-heated and secured igloos on the north green.

This year, following the easing of the lockdown, the cabins have reopened with table service offered to its outdoor seafront seats. The roof is not yet open.

Mr. Davids added, “The Residence Card simply offers priority access to specific events, such as movie screenings, dinner clubs, professional networking events, intimate concerts with international artists and a chance to be part of unique experiences such as our podcast series.

“We created the residence permit as an optional supplement to which our community can choose to register if they wish. This ensures that locals remain a priority for these events rather than “off the towers”. ”
