A friendly venue with a more mature crowd for a club/bar. The music is old skool and good fun classics to keep uou dancing all night.

Looked at facebook and found out that comedy night finished at 22.00 and the after party starts from 22.00 to 02.00, so my partner and I arrived at Lb1 at 22.10 to be charged £3.00 each as comedy night was still going on.Yes, we could have walked away but we thought as the after party (music) would be starting very...

Only place to be on a Friday night, starts off very quiet and later in the evening people pour in and the dancefloor is heaving. Great music, shame it does not serve beer, husband has to drink red wine.

Yes I agree the music is good, but apart from that LB1 struggles along. Sadly would like to see it open more often. Great if what you are after is a boogie and drink.

A few of us went here after being at a local pub in Crawley. A few of our mates were from Kent and were staying in Crawley for the night. They had never been to LB1 before and really enjoyed it, from the atmosphere to how quickly you get served at the bar. The music is ok. The door staff... More

Positives - fine for the occasional night of dancing to cheesy music, after quite a few drinks, if you are at an age where you look odd going out dancing! Negatives - the clientele tend to be ridiculously drunk and chavvy. The music is the exact same EVERY Friday. The dj has become complacent (lazy) and I pretty much know... More

When I was told I was going to a nightclub after a very good, sophisticated meal in an up-market restaurant, my 50 something year old body wanted to collapse. However, to keep the peace, I went with the flow and found myself boogying on down and singing along to all the old dancefloor fillers that I loved so much way... More

Mr Skeggs is a fantastic DJ Every Friday here. I been going to places he plays for years, This place used to serve mediocre food...they stopped serving food. Believe they are starting again soon...hope it is an improvement. Drinks a bit pricier than most pubs, but you do not pay to get in

Hired the VIP area for the Friday night 80s/90s night with DJ Gordon Skeggs - fantastic!!!!! Music & atmosphere brilliant, door staff helpful. Best place on a Friday night for great dancing with nice people, especially if you don't want to be right in the town centre. Can't wait for next Friday night!!

First of all they don't do food anymore more. Secondly they have this "local legend" on a Friday night Gordon Skeggs which is nothing special, it's iust nostalgic. And the clientele is very chavtastic but hey what do you expect from Crawley. Basicly all the people who think they are too old for a nightclub but still want the feel... More
