Visited a few days ago. The club feels quite claustrophobic with very little space. To make it worse, it is unclean and the toilet doors have no locks.

We attended the sauvage swingers event last night which we saw advertised on Fab. The club is a good size with really cool graffiti art work on the dance floor. Staff were friendly, and there were lockers to put your stuff. We were shown around the club by the organiser, Fab Prifile Sauvage Swingers.

There was a Dungeon room downstairs with 6 play rooms upstairs of varying themes.

We went as a foursome, but unfortunately the event was pretty dead and only a handful of other people.

The play rooms were OK but quite cold and not really enticing everyone to take their kit off, we did also feel the themed rooms would be better utilised with actual beds and made more comfortable, blankets/pillows etc it would also be nice if you could play music in them.

If it was a busier night then the atmosphere would be great, and the dance floor buzzing. We woukd be happy to attend other events, so we will be back.

We attended the Sauvage Swingers event which is arranged through Fab. We were greeted by the host who were both beautiful and welcoming. The club is a decent size with play rooms situated up stairs. We had a great time and met some lovely people. Especially the couple we played with in one of the play rooms. A special mention goes to the owener who also was very welcoming and spent time to tell me about future events and show me some of his personal toy collections. See you again

Have attended Fiendish a few times now. Can get a little bit overwhelming with the amount of people and how loud the music is. But a great and fun vibe, and always a great excuse to dress up.

This was our first trip to a sex/swingers club and we went on a kink night.

Great fun with friendly people- f was spanked by two ladies at the same time. We played in the glory hole and the room with a cage door so others could look in.

Attended a joint swing BDSM event here earlier in the year with a friend. The event was quiet but the atmosphere was very fun, the hosts were very warm and welcoming with some interesting break out rooms.

Visited on their fetish night. Decent sized venue, cloakroom, lockers, reasonably priced, alcohol, friendly staff, and a down-to-earth and unpretentious crowd. I did not make use of the glory holes, the “cuddle room” or the dark grope room, but these were good to see. Would happily visit again if I was in the area.

I attended one of the Devious nights which is BDSM themed. Whilst everyone I met there seemed friendly enough, I am a a single older guy so wouldn't really be bothered by anyone of course.

The venue on the other hand was a bit gross. It is more just set up as a regular club and not ideal for playing. I travelled and so turned up after a drive and asked to be pointed to the showers. I was told there weren't any on those nights as staff were working a cloak room that blocked acess to lockers and showers. Also just told to change outside the cloak room.

Well, when I walked through, the cloak room was serviced by a window directly in the club. Luckily for me changing just required striping a few layers off. I'm obviously not prudish, given the event I attended. But it would have been odd to walk into a club full of people and just strip off, particularly as everyone else seemed fairly clothed, even if in some very skimpy attire.

Next was the toilets. It was initially suggested I could have a rinse in the loos. I investigated. There appears to be a women's loo and a mixed gender loo. The mixed gender one consisting of a tiny space with a urinal and sink with a cubicle for a loo in. Both toilets had open doors onto the club.

Not only were they open on to the club but they were disgusting. I had travelled in my van so ended up walking back to that and having a quick wet wipe wipe down in the back of that.

Inside the loos at various times in the night the loos were covered in piss, looked as though someone has given themselves an enema or just vomited. There were grim.

Play rooms and other facilities were ok. But honestly I doubt I would have felt comfortable playing given the hygiene situation in the club anyway. If you want to go to a rave in a tiny dirty club, this place will give you those retro underground vibes. For actually having some naughty fun, avoid.

I went to Dare To on Saturday for Fiendish. Really nice venue. outdoor areas are spacious.

The rooms were good, one was really warm but another had a giant fan. Found the dungeon area (in an old cellar room) to be a bit overcrowded with equipment but that might be the event, not the venue.

I went to Deviant Desires and enjoyed myself. A friendly bunch of people, had some lovely conversations and enjoyed watching in the dungeon. As it was my first time, I just took it easy mostly, I’m looking forward to next time. Thanks for hosting Chantilly xx

This review is about Libertines and not the club Dare.

I went yesterday to their Sunday afternoon event and I don't think I'll go again.

They don't limit the single men so there were a lot of them, many of them were new to a club so didn't know the etiquette. Don't think they are taught this when they are shown around the club.

It's a Sunday afternoon, so not too keen on loud dance music and smoke machine. Makes it difficult to actually talk with anyone.

The only place to sit is outside, downstairs where everyone smokes. So this is not nice for those of us who are not smokers.

This used to be on the 1st Sunday of the month and now is on the 2nd which means that it clashes with Swamp. Swamp is where I'll choose to go than another Libertines event.

Not much effort in making this a different, chilled event. I can see why there area not that many regulars like how there used to be pre-pandemic.

Shame as it used to be my favourite

Went yesterday to the LIBERTINES, Sunday afternoon session. It was great, busy, a bunch of lovely people as usual. Its my favourite event at Dare

A couple of things that would improve it would be a change of music so that it was more chilled, sunday afternoon kind of music.

No strobing lights, more soft atmospheric lights

Move the benches by the dance floor so that it creates a lovely sitting area where people can socialise.

I attended the bi-monthly event FIENDISH last Sat, haven't been to this club for a while and had forgotten how good it is, Cherry was at the door to welcome me, and I had a great time in the playrooms with some lovely laid back guys, including an unexpected MMF sesh to round off the evening, I can defo recommend this venue...X

Price to go in is way to expansive and if you are gay that place you need to be

We attended the sauvage event climax event here last night.

The staff are super friendly, the bar is well stocked and it has a large dancefloor... but to be honest it's tricky to find many more positives. It was super quiet, very little atmosphere and pretty cold everywhere.

We had a great night, but it wasn't down to the venue and it was too cold to think about taking any clothes off!

Not for us

We attended liberation party, which was also our very first time at the club. The staff were friendly and gave us a good tour of the club. The club has everything you would need to have a good night. We met some lovely people and although we didn't get to play we would definitely be returning.

We went to this club last night, it wasn’t what we expected. Multiple playrooms kitted out for role play and a dance floor so if thats your thing this place is for you! Sadly it didn’t quite have the vibe that we were looking for as the male to couple ratio was a little high for our liking, but don’t let that put you off as the team who runs it are incredibly friendly! Great to see free condoms available to all…enjoy fabers.
