11-12 Queens Road, Brighton BN1 3WA
With a brand new, old look The Hope & Ruin is the new name for the Hope, and that’s not the only change. Just some of the improvements, include an increased capacity for gigs upstairs, a full food menu of poutine and hotdogs, an expanded range of craft beers, brewery fresh lager, and that very different new look that came from the team travelling in eastern Europe where bars are frequently cobbled together out of reclaimed spaces using anything the owners can get hold off.
The venue upstairs has become a much more practical live music space from simply moving the bar to the back of the room. That’s considerably more easily said that done, by the way. The stage is higher (and larger), the air-con more powerful, the bands bigger, the programming more dynamic.

An Introduction to Lue 02.04.18 The time has come for us to spread our wings into the world of music and release it into the unknown! I, Lue, would like to invite you to my first ever show with my full band at The Hope & Ruin on 2nd April 2018. It is the end of one chapter and the beginning of something new and very exciting! We're very honoured to be supported by the lovely Madeline and Sunny Joe! A little piece written by Brighton Source: Lue, Mon 2nd April Lue will be introducing their mix of dreamy melodies and sublime musical textures to the Brighton music scene this April at the Hope and Ruin. The ambient folk rock band are fronted by Brighton-based singer songwriter, also called Lue, whose acoustic guitar playing and soaring vocal melodies caught our ear earlier this year. Her songs will be backed by a six-piece band, which includes strings, piano, guitar and vocal harmonies. This will be the first time they’ve performed live. Over the last few months Lue has appeared in various manifestations at open mics and showcases in Brighton, sometimes as a solo artist and sometimes with a stripped-back version of the band. We’re excited about seeing all the musicians sharing a stage together. Lue will also be supported by talented solo artist, Madeline, whose own soulful ambient folk sounds are the ideal stylistic accompaniment to Lue.
