What is Buttoned Down Disco about?


Buttoned Down Disco have been running parties in London for over thirteen years now. Over that time we have rocked over 40 different London venues and hosted huge tents at major festivals including Glastonbury, Reading and Latitude. We hold a monthly residency at the magnificent KOKO in Camden on the first Saturday of each month and entry is invite only.

Music policy

Musically, we are driven by a lifetime's passion for music and we play the songs that we love. Club founder and resident DJ Christian Laing mashes up Eclectic Pop, Indie, Punk, Electro, Funk & Disco, although you might also hear some Dubstep, Reggae, Ska, Soul, Motown, Psychedelic Garage Rock, Bubblegum Pop, New Wave, One Hit Wonders, Breakdance, Quirky Cover Versions, Hip Hop and Mash Ups. Upstairs in the Gallery Bar, DJ Antics rolls out the house party vibes with hip hop, funk and breaks.

Entry & requesting invites

Our parties are FREE before 10.30pm, then £10 afterwards, and entry can only be obtained with an invite or a Buttoned Down Disco badge. You can request invites here. Once you have requested invites, we will send you an email back which will act as your invite but please also check your junk mail. Invites will have full details about the party, including opening times, address of the venue, DJ line ups and any other details you'll need. You'll then need to print the invite or show it on your phone and bring it along with you on the night - simple. If you want to invite friends along, either get them to sign up, or simply copy or forward your invite for them! Please note that we operate a door policy to ensure a happy, safe atmosphere for everyone to enjoy the night. In other words - bad attitude is not welcome!

Guestlist & group bookings

Buttoned Down Disco is a fantastic place for a celebration! If you have a large group and want an extra special night, we do offer group packages. These include the exclusive hire of the Royal Box or the Directors Box for the whole evening, with 25 and 30 queue jump guestlist places respectively and the facility to pre-order drinks directly from KOKO. The Royal Box is a beautiful, private balcony area overlooking all the party action. The Directors Box is opposite the Royal Box and features a private bar. For smaller groups, we also offer £15 queue jump tickets via ticket web which allows you to skip the main queue and get partying even more quickly. We can also accommodate larger parties, please contact us for bespoke packages.
