Entry Requirements

Sugar Hut can be visited by any member of the public and is not a ‘members only’ Club. To enter the nightclub, you must provide current photographic identification which will be scanned by a national ID scanning system at the point of entry. ID we accept includes a valid passport or a full or provisional driving licence only. You MUST provide ID, even if you are obviously over 18. This is due to security reasons and to keep all of our visitors safe once inside the venue. You must adhere to our dress code policy at all times. Our door staff have the discretion to disallow entry to any visitor if their attire does not suit the venue.

How can I avoid Queueing?

We suggest visitors apply for our guest list (which can be found here). Those successful for application have the advantage of priority entry. Please be aware that you can only apply for guest list at 9am on the Monday before the weekend of the event you wish to attend. All requests before this time will not be fulfilled. If you are unsuccessful in your application for the guest list, we suggest that you arrive at the stated opening times to avoid long queuing times into the venue.

Do you provide packages?

Yes, we have many VIP table and drinks packages for you to choose from, dependant on your requirements. Please call us on 01277 200 885 to discuss the best package for you.

Will I see someone from TOWIE?

Possibly. Past and present cast of ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ regularly frequent Sugar Hut, but we cannot guarantee you will see someone from the show unless stated on our events calendar or news page.

Do you provide disabled facilities?

Yes, we have disabled facilities on the ground floor of the venue only. Unfortunately, there is not a lift to the first floor, and therefore the main nightclub area. Due to the building being Grade II listed we are unable to install a lift.
