Sugar Hut

204 user reviews 4

Propelled into the national spotlight by TOWIE, Sugar Hut is undoubtedly one of the most popular and recognisable clubs in Essex. An historic venue dating back 500 years, this decadent party spot brings enchantment and mystery to Brentwood High Street. There's a restaurant and coffee shop included, but without doubt the main draw of the Hut is the venue's late-night party spirit, as crowds come from across the country to experience the eight individually characterised rooms.

First off, yes that really is Snoop Dogg gracing the decks at Talk. Southend's original nightclub is partial to the occasional A-lister dropping in for a DJ set, bringing memorable club nights to a joyous party crowd. Talk comes made up of three unique party rooms and five luxury booths, with a killer playlist and a state-of-the-art LED graphic display offering a spectacular night out experience.

Unit 7

Fans of partying in Bas Vegas know to rock up to Unit 7 once the weekend rolls around. The home for the young and party-ready, they deliver several rooms of music, with different bars offering some of the more affordable drinks around. Not just a great club in Essex, they also attract live acts and top DJs too.

The Pink Toothbrush

2 user reviews 1

The Pink Toothbrush is one of the UK's longest running alternative nightclubs, with the likes of Blur, Radiohead and Ice T having graced their doors. It's obvious why though, as – along with the great soundtrack – people flock here for the cheap drinks and the friendliest atmosphere in town. Fridays are particularly rammed, with queues sometimes lining down the street.
