Maidstone’s newest live music venue and club, bringing you live music from local and national artists, along with the best DJs.

The Rafters was born out of the desire to go to a late night venue and club that wasn’t mainstream. A place with good music, good people and a great atmosphere. There is no dress code and no attitude. We aim to supply the demand for an alternative space with no restrictions. Live music every Saturday until after midnight and DJs playing indie, rock, swing, hip hop, breaks and alternative till 4am.
