1. What is the minimum age for entry to Buttoned Down Disco?

Buttoned Down Disco operates an over 18 policy.


2. Will I need to bring ID to prove my age?

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.


3. Is there a dress code?

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.


4. Can I wear fancy dress?

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 management reserve right of admission and no guarantee for entry can be made in advance of the night.


5. Will there be much of a queue to get in?
