, and celebrities that have been seen in this venue include Lady Gaga and Keira Knightley. As for The Box Soho, it has seen numerous celebrities, not least of all Prince Harry himself! The Box nightclubs are some of the most stunning and exclusive in the world. If you want to mingle with celebrities and London's rich and famous this is the place to be. But if you want to make it onto the guest list you might need to put in a bit of elbow grease. It is notoriously one of the harder clubs to get into, and you might be on the waiting list a while before you are considered a guest. You can definitely not just show up and get in!
The Box nightclub in the heart of Soho will provide you with a full service if you book them. They can personalize your entertainment, drinks, food, and seating arrangements depending on whether you are hosting a hen night, birthday party, or product launch. Just be warned that whatever you book it for, expect some freakiness. This is considered one of the strangest experiences in all of London night life.
If there is not a show going you might be deceived into thinking it is an everyday club, playing house, R&B, hip hop, and standard chart music for an eager dance floor, subtle decor, and drinks flowing. From the outside it looks and sounds like a perfectly ordinary London nightclub. But from inside the club is quirky and sexy, standing out from most of London, and when the show starts you will quickly find out how The Box gets its reputation.
The Box does not offer a direct guest list, making it very unique. And what need for a guest list when you have people queuing around the corner all day and all night to get in! The downside to this is that you might feel like you're competing against all of London if you choose to queue outside. The upside to this is that if you get on a guest list such as the one offered by Clubbable, you are in, and will receive the most extravagant experience Soho's nightclubs have to offer.
The Box Dress Code for the members of the Box guest list is chic and sexy in heels for the ladies and smart casual with elegant shoes for the gentlemen. The club management reserves the right to refuse entry when requirements are not met.
The Box also exists in New York which can also be found in the Clubbable app: The Box in New York

What is a grey area:
The grey area are clothes that might be allowed some days/events and not others, or that are at the discretion of door staff. In short, if you happen to be in the area, wearing these clothes and want to check the club out, then maybe see if you can. You might get lucky. But if you are actually planning a night here? Avoid these and go for something closer to the dress code.
Distressed look clothes are a grey area. Although some distressed look clothes, like women's cutoff denim shorts, or slashed leggings, can look great and might be let in, most of the time they will get you turned away.
What is forbidden:
These clothes will get you turned away at the door, even if you are on the guest list, have a table with bottle service reserved, and it's your birthday. Sorry.
No t-shirts. T-shirts can be worn underneath button down shirts, but really, because the button down shirts worn here tend to be more relaxed and trendy, it's better to just stick with the shirt on its own, or with a vest.
No women's flats. Women must be in heels to be allowed in.
No trainers or sneakers. No trainers for men or women. Women's converses might be allowed depending on how stylish they are, but it's wiser to just avoid all trainers and sneakers.
No sportswear. Absolutely no tracksuits, football shirts, sports jerseys, etc.
