Eastbourne Working Mens Club

Eastbourne Working Men's Club was founded as a Members Only Club in October 1912 by Charles Jewell Snr.  

It was envisaged as being a place where the working men of the time could go to socialise. Ladies were then only allowed in by "invitation only".  Times have obviously changed and ladies make up a large part of our membership and members' children are welcome, under supervision.

We offer a wide range of drinks including four real ales at our two fully licensed bars as well as daytime and evening entertainments and events.
