How to Become a VIP
London’s clubs are difficult to get into if you turn up on the night – but you can guarantee entry by booking ahead.
London is famed all over the world for its nightlife, and you’ll see pictures of celebrities leaving the capital’s clubs in the gossip pages of newspapers all over the world. It’s because of their superstar reputation that clubs in the city are becoming increasingly harder to make your way into – no matter how you try to bribe the bouncers. To put it simply, if your name’s not down you’re not coming in! So how can you ensure you get into the club of your choice?
Times are Changing
The air of exclusivity surrounding London’s club scene is down to a few different factors. Firstly, there are far fewer clubs in the city than there were a decade ago, yet more and more revellers are hitting them on a night out. So naturally, some of those clubs have had to be very selective about who they let in. This has led to lots of competition between the top nightclubs in the capital, each of whom want to be known as the hottest place in town.
London’s superstar reputation also plays a part. With the rich and famous putting these clubs on the map, they obviously want to build on that good reputation. That means only admitting the right kind of crowd – and many clubs have a strict dress code. This as well as only admitting pre-booked guests means that getting into the best clubs in town can be a tricky process.
The Hottest Clubs in Town
So what are the most exclusive clubs in London at the moment? With so many new venues opening, it can be difficult to keep track of which ones are the best.
First up is Tape, which has been described as ‘game-changing’ by those in the industry. To see what all the fuss is about, secure yourself a Tape table booking.
Next on your list should be Bonbonniere, a favourite of supermodel Jourdan Dunn and rapper Tinie Tempah. This club has only been open for 18 months, but has established itself as one of the best in the city. Planning ahead and getting a Bonbonniere table booking will guarantee you entry into the club.
Last but not least is Drama, the successor to the famous Whisky Mist Club. To say it had big boots to fill is putting it mildly, but it’s more than lived up to expectations with its unique atmosphere and eclectic music selection. A Drama table booking means that you’ll be able to enjoy all that the club has to offer without queuing for entry and being turned away at the door.
A Bit of Forward Planning and You’re All Set
Once you’ve got your name on the guest list or booked a table, it’s time to plan your epic night out in the capital. Whether you’re staying at one club or sampling a few, planning ahead means that you’re guaranteed entry and all the perks of being a VIP guest. You’ll need to dress to impress too of course – you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous after all. So wherever you’re planning to go, make your night out run smoothly by booking ahead. You’ll thank yourself for it later on!
