Buttoned Down Disco at Electric Ballroom operates an over 18 policy.
Yes, we advise that you bring a form of ID in case you are asked at the door. Only current passport, driving licence or PASS identification cards are accepted as valid forms of ID. Student cards are not accepted.
Buttoned Down Disco is an indie/alternative club; we don't have a dress code per se, but we do not permit work/office wear (eg. no naff suits etc). To get an idea of what people wear, please see our photos.
We love to see people dressed to dance! However, we do not permit hen do or stag party style fancy dress (eg. no "L"-plates, inflatables and the like). Likewise we're not really into completely trashy fancy dress. To get an idea of what people wear, please see our photos. Please note that the Electric Ballroom management reserve right of admission and no guarantee for entry can be made in advance of the night.
Buttoned Down Disco is a very popular clubnight and the free entry (before 11.00pm) can attract a large queue. Entry is on a first come first served basis from 10.30pm, so arrive early! We also offer queue jump tickets, so if you're planning a special celebration and would like to come with a group of friends, buying queue jump tickets could be a perfect option. Buy £15 queue jump tickets via Eventbrite.
The last admission into the venue is 2.30am.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer any discounts on entry, since we already offer a very generous free entry before 11.00pm. Entry after 11.00pm is £10 per person.
Yes, everyone in your group needs an eventbrite membership ticket or an eventbrite queue jump ticket. Please simply request membership for you and your guests (one each). For smaller groups who want a little something special, we also offer £15 queue jump tickets via Eventbrite 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.
Yes, we have tables that can be hired out for exclusive use at our Electric Ballroom parties. View the group bookings page for more info.
A confirmation email should have been automatically sent to you within a few minutes of signing up. Then, in the week leading up to the next party, you should have received the official invitation with a link to get your eventbrite ticket. From time to time, our emails can get caught up by spam filtering systems. This is often the case for Hotmail, Yahoo and GMail users. Please check that mail from firstname.lastname@example.org is allowed to be delivered to your mailbox. You may find that invites are going straight into your spam or trash folder, if so, please adjust your spam filter accordingly.
Yes, you have two alternative options to showing your membership ticket. You can either show your ticket electronically on your phone or you can use a Buttoned Down Disco badge as a substitute invite. You can use badges from previous parties. In order to reduce the amount of paper wastage, we like to promote these more environmentally friendly alternatives, but rest assured Electric Ballroom also operate a recycling policy on the printed invites.
