1. What is the minimum age for entry to Antics?

Antics at Electric Ballroom 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?

Antics is a music lovers clubnight; we don't have a dress code per se, but we do not permit work/office wear (eg. no naff suits, loafers). 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 Electric Ballroom 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?

Generally the queue moves quickly and is gradual but it can be busy after midnight, so arrive early!


6. What time is last entry to Antics?

The last admission into the venue is 2.30am.


7. I have a large group coming down; can I get a discount?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer any discounts on entry, since we already offer a very generous Β£5 advance ticket price.


8. I have a large group coming down; do we all need tickets?

No, you can buy tickets on the door at Β£8 if you don't have advance tickets.


9. Can I get guestlist?

Sorry, we don't offer guestlist per se.


10. Can I hire a VIP/private area?

Electric Ballroom are currently building a private hire area and we hope to have more details soon.


11. I've requested membership but I haven't received anything yet; why is this?

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 eflyer. From time to time, invites get caught up by spam filtering systems. This is often the case for Hotmail, Yahoo and GMail users. Please check that mail from letsdance@buttoneddowndisco.com 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.


12. I don't have a printer; are there alternatives to showing the printed eflyer?

Yes, you have another option to showing a printed eflyer. You can either show your eflyer electronically on your phone. 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.


13. Does Electric Ballroom have a cloakroom/bag storage?

Yes, Electric Ballroom has a large cloakroom, where you can deposit your coat or bag for Β£2 per item.


14. Does Electric Ballroom have a smoking area?

Yes, a large smoking courtyard at the side of the venue.


15. Do Electric Ballroom offer disabled access?

Yes, they do. Please contact us for details.


16. Can I make a music request?

Of course, just contact us and let us know what you would like to hear! If it's suitable, we'll try and play it.


17. Can I play your mix?

Yes, our mixes are uploaded to Mixcloud and you can play them on the mixes page. We hope you enjoy them!


18. Can I hire Antics for private parties?

19. Is Antics the biggest and best hip hop party in London, if not the UK?
