SUTTON BARCELONA: [THE ULTIMATE GUIDE]
Sutton Barcelona, my personal favourite club in all Barcelona! The only club that really has managed to maintain a standard of excellence over its 13 years of operation. The place screams luxury, and has the clientele to match. Everyone is good-looking, fashionable and there to enjoy the totally commercial but very enjoyable resident Djs all night long.
It’s the club in Barcelona you’ll likely learn to love and you’ll become a regular on the Friday sessions to cool off after a long work or schoolweek.
You’ll find Sutton on the famed Calle Tuset, one of the hotspots in Barcelona for the rich and famous. The street is known for its upscale bars, restaurants and obviously, clubs.
Across the road from Sutton you’ll find its competitor Bling Bling.
Sutton is open from Wednesday to Saturday with its sessions. Its door is very selective, letting you in only if you’re dressed well and they take care of their girl to guy ratio inside, so guys, best grab some girls to go in with.
The place is full to the brim with Barcelona’s finest crowd Thursday to Saturday and the Wednesdays are packed with young internationals partying the night away, very fun to experience.
How to get to Sutton?
Shoko Barcelona is located on Calle Tuset, 13, right in the middle of the Zona Alta clubs and bars area of town. You’ll find an abundance of bars and upscale restaurants around Sutton.
The nearest metro stop is at Diagonal, but to be honest it is so central to everywhere in Barcelona that you’ll be able to walk (worth it as its a great area of town) or take a taxi/cabify for less than 10 Euros.

Quick Tip : For those of you coming from abroad, uber and other private ridesharing apps are illegal in Barcelona. The best alternative is Cabify which is essentially the same as uber but legal in Barcelona.
DRESS CODE & AGE REQUIREMENT
How to get past the bouncers?
The Dress code and the bouncers at Sutton are some of the strictest in Barcelona on a Friday and a Saturday. The age minimums are 23+ for Girls and 25+ for Guys. They often might reject you for seemingly no reason.
The reason is likely that you are underage, not dressed well enough or you are a large group of guys without girls. Keep all that in mind.
On Wednesday and Thursday they are more relaxed, with them being fine with anything 18+, however, the dress code will still be well enforced. So always dress up to go to Sutton, mix guys and girls when you go in and you’ll be fine.
The guideline for the dress code in Sutton is:
No athletic wear of any kind
No shorts (exception for dress shorts with nice shoes)
Stylish T-shirt or Shirt
No close shaven hairstyles
Use your night out at Sutton to really dress up. This is the place to show off your best shoes and cocktail dresses.
My recommendation is coming to Shoko looking fresh, showered and put together. No trainers, non-dress shorts or sporty clothing. Best go with long pants, good shoes and a shirt or polo. Everything else runs the risk of not cutting it.
My Best tip for both guys and girls is to simply check out the albums of previous parties at Sutton to see what everyone else is wearing inside.

Plus, there’s nothing better to hype up a night out that putting on your favourite club tunes and browsing through club albums.
QUICK TIP: However, if you dress up very well and especially if it is not a weekend night, there is a good chance you’ll be let in if you are under the age requirement.
Sutton often throws special events, theres something every two weeks. On those nights there is a hell of a line all the way from 00:30 to 02:30. However on the normal days its never much of a problem, you’ll not need wait more than 10 mins. I’ll recommend getting on our guest list in any case to get through the line quckers and you’ll get in for free.
It’s best you arrive around 1:15-1:30 to Sutton. There are alot of locals in the club and they usually tend to turn up at 1:30-2:30, so you’ll get in before the longer line builds.
Remember, at Sutton the free guest list entry always end at 2am, meaning that you’d best be there 1:30 latest as everyone tries to get in for free.
QUICK TIP: Get yourself on our Guestlist to avoid inflated cover charges! And stick to the dresscode to ensure entry!
The regular cover at Sutton is 20 euros including a drink. Premium pricing for a premium club I guess. I’d really recommend getting in for free or (just ladies) dressing up very well and you might have a chance of seducing your way past the bouncer.
Guys, you are welcome to try this, won’t work, but it’ll be entertaining for everyone around you.
The better alternative is always to go for a VIP reservation, which are comparatively affordable at Sutton. With a table you won’t need to worry about lines as you’ll get ushered in at the VIP entrance after having made a reservation with us.
The Table reservation gets rid of the cover charge, whatever time you go.
OUR RECOMMENDATION: It’s always best to get on our guestlist to skip the cover!
The regular cover in Sutton is 20 Euros with the guest list getting you in for free every day until 2am. Its a better deal to get in for free as the drinks inside cost around 15 euros.
It’ll always be best to check out guest list page, or ask one of our promoters directly.
Where best to get cocktails?
Sutton is on the pricey side, however in my humble opinion worth every penny as the place oozes luxury.
An advantage at Sutton is that there are an abundance of bars and bartenders, so wait times are short. You’ll find Suttons layout to be very convenient if you like to kick back and enjoy your drink. The dancefloor just in front of the DJ is always packed, but then you have the bars wrapping around the dancefloor and the VIP areas which always have some space.
The drink prices at Sutton are:
Longdrinks at 15 Euros
Beers and Wines at 7 Euros
Shots at 4 Euros
INSIDERS SECRET: The club has some of the most well designed toilet areas and mirrors. A big plus for the selfie crowd as the pictures you’ll be able to take here will be among your favorites.
VIP & BOTTLE SERVICE GUIDE
Sutton has just freshly renovated its VIP areas in the summer of 2017 and is now one of the best in the world. Renowned for its excellent service, you’ll always find some high profile clients lounging in the VIP of Sutton, often local business leaders or minor celebrities.
A VIP night out here is always great fun due to the high level of the crowd at sutton and the very good DJs that know how to get a dancefloor moving.
If you’re looking to take a VIP table for your night out you can reach out to us via Whatsapp and we’ll have your table reserved ASAP.
Sutton is my personal favourite and I hope it’ll become yours too. If you are the kind of person that loves to dress up and look good and party with other like minded people, you’ll love Sutton.
The best night for young international is Wednesday. If you are looking for a young, local vibe with alot of posh spaniards, the thursday party is your best bet. If you are a masters student looking to turn up, the Friday is my recommendation. Saturdays has more of a 30-40 year old vibe, but its still very entertaining.
