Entry into Zurich nightclubs without female company is refused

Last Saturday, in three nightclubs (Klaufleuten, Indochine and Escherwyss) the guys that didn't have female company weren't allowed to enter. The guys that were on guestlist could enter if they weren't wearing a T-Shirt . The doorman was claiming that this rule is applied in whole Zurich. Is this new or what ?

It was quiet embarrassing for me in front of my friend . So I just wanted to give you a heads up...

A silly question : how can somebody go on the guestlist of a nightclub?

No. Nightclubs have been doing this all over the world for years.

I don't go often to nightclubs (prude-alert ). I have been in kaufleuten three or four times and this never happened to me. So I thought something might have been changed.....

Haha really?
So I take it they let females in regardless of them being accompanied by a male?

As I understood, the mean motivation of this rule is to keep the number of male and female persons even. But I didn't see any female group without male company (What the hell is going on here ??? ), so I can't exactly answer your question....

I hear that the rules are sometimes bent, or possibly banana shaped, at gay clubs. There is a club for all occasions, one just needs to find the suit that suits you sir.

Main St clubs are notorious for pretense.

Find an attractive girlfriend.

If you don't manage to do so, the club probably had a point in refusing you

Somehow I doubt this happens at a techno night. I swear, it's almost all guys. I'm usually one of the few girlies flailing around up front.

Pffft. You probably just have an ancient, wise Gandhi look is all.

It's jealousy, yo.

Re: Entry into Zurich nightclubs without female company is refused

I just don't go to clubs with dress codes . . . it means it's the wrong type of club for me.

It's often a good idea to sign up to a guest list. As well as guaranteeing entry you can sometimes skip queues. Try having a look at the Resident Advisor website.

Clubs where you're unlikely to have a problem: Zukunft, Exil, Abart, Cocuna, the Stairs Club. Might not be your kind of places though.

Re: Entry into Zurich nightclubs without female company is refused

Most clubs don't let groups of guys in to avoid fights. You should go in 1, 2 at a time or with girls. Oh &, no t-shirts & no sneakers. Some clubs even say no jeans. So best to dress a bit smart if you've never been to the club & know for sure the dress code.

Honestly, what kind of place is worth going to if you can't wear sneakers? How are you meant to dance? Tch!
