How busy will it be?
A question we can’t really answer. We are working hard to ensure busy nights and afternoons, utilising our links with all major web sites in the UK, as well as promoting ourselves on lots of web sites and other media. On a busy night, we can have well over 100 people in, quieter nights, less, but it changes by the minute, so please don’t ring asking how many people are in. By the time you get here, it will have changed. Check the Events page, for additional information on a specific night. Also if everybody that has booked in does turn up and people that don’t book in but turn up, its a guessing game that if I knew the answer to, I would do the lottery.

What do we need to join?
This site has Membership Application Forms. Please fill one of these in, before setting out to the club. We will reply to them all as quickly as possible, giving you an indication if membership will be accepted, or we are at capacity for a specific group. Couples and single females are welcome at the door, single males must wait for an acceptance email back from us. When you visit us you will need a valid form of Photo-ID for each member. You must be over 18 to join. Membership isn’t allowed without checking ID. Passport or Driving Licence is ideal, a recent utility bill, and bank cards are also acceptable. Your information is stored by us, will not be used or passed on to any other organisation.

It’s our first visit to Dare to Club what should we expect?
We understand a first visit can be daunting. Treat the first trip as if going out for a drink with friends, where everyone has one hobby in common. That’s all it needs to be, don’t worry or panic, and definitely, DO NOT get drunk before attending! If it’s your first visit, please allow us to show you around. This tour will introduce some of the areas to you, but more importantly, give us a chance to chat with you, reassuring you of what happens, where, and when, so there are no surprises later.

What should we bring with us?
Photo-ID, as mentioned above, if new and ID every time if you have no membership, Cash or Card for the entrance fee and bar.

We have the following available for you:

Do I have to wear a Fetish outfit for the Fetish events?
Not at all, It’s your choice what you would like to wear, just as long as you are clean, tidy and not smelly.

What ages, size, race, gender, etc. of people attend?

Our only door stipulation is that you are over 18 years of age. We have people of all races, ages, sizes, and genders that attend a variety of are events. So again, check on our website before you attend to make sure that the event you are attending suits your personal preference. The club layout may not be ideal for people with a walking disability who find stairs awkward as the club has around 25 stairs between floors, however, access to where the toilets, bar, dance floor, changing facilities, two themed rooms, and smoking area are all located on the main floor. If wheelchair access is required, please call us in advance so we can ensure access is provided.

Can I still come if it states “SOLD OUT” on the website?
NO, as this means we are at full capacity of what are licensing states.

Do you allow Chewing Gum?
No, sorry, it gets everywhere so we have to ban it. Mints are provided at the reception, and you can also purchase packets from the bar.

Do we bring our own drinks?
No. We have a fully licensed bar, selling a good range of beers, wines, and spirits. We have plenty of soft drinks, as well as non-alcoholic lagers for the drivers. Please do not bring in your own drinks, as these will be stored in reception by the door staff. If on your first visit to us, your favorite tipple isn’t supplied, please mention it to us and we’ll see if we can get it in. Our bar is also cheaper than surrounding pubs and hotels, so if looking for an early drink to settle nerves maybe, then coming into the club is actually a good idea.

Please ensure you do not get drunk. Our license is based on serving sober people, and should you get drunk, we will stop serving you, and ask you to leave the premises. In accordance with our license, we can not allow any drinks to be taken off the premises. We appreciate many people get nervous in this environment, but being unable to watch out for yourself, does not help anyone.

Can I come and go from the club?
No sorry, there is no re-entry to the club to be able to come and go as you please.

Mobile Phones, can I take pictures in the club?
Absolutely not. The rule protects us all. Any recording devices, including mobile phones, must be left in your locker. We have a very secure cloakroom. However, they are not permitted anywhere else in the club. Anyone found trying to photograph or video anything in the club will be ejected, and the media destroyed. All members are asked to report any incident of this nature to staff should it ever occur. If anyone is caught with a camera, our policy is to look through the recent photo’s and video’s to ensure nothing has been taken in the club. Be warned, we do not take this lightly!

If you wish to do a photo session within the club, then please contact us directly for private hire information.

Is there CCTV in the club?
We do have cameras inside the club and others outside protecting the building. The ones inside are:

Covering the front door, reception, and cloakrooms, to protect your belongings and to cover any issues at the front door and covering the dance floor, smoking areas, kitchen area, Bar areas, hallways and stairs, dungeon.

These are recording for all of our security and peace of mind, and should not be seen as covert in any way. All screens can be viewed by asking at the reception desk if you wish to see what is displayed. The data from these can only be requested by the Police following an incident in which the information might be of use. As a Private Members Club, we restrict the viewing of this material to the correct law enforcement agencies and only provide it when a crime has been committed.

What rules come into play during BDSM play?
Members involving themselves in BDSM play in the dungeon area normally enjoy a zone around them that cannot be interfered with, either by others approaching too much or by noise, such as speech, interrupting their games. Please be very aware of this and try not to interfere. If they wish participation in some form, they will clearly indicate to you that you can get involved. If you get no signal, then it’s seen as extremely impolite to interrupt them in any way.

I’d like more advice on the entire scene, where can I find it?
Dare to club recommends FabSwingers or Fetlife as a good way of getting to know the scene and to ask any questions of others before visits if you need to. The Forum section on the site is well run, and plenty of people will answer you with different views on most subjects. The site in its basic form is free, and only supporters are asked to pay something for access.

The Fetish scene is best served by a site called Fetlife. Again once on the site, make sure to make friends with us under the name Dare to Club
