Online accounts

Q. I’m already a member of another Rileys venue, can I log into the Haymarket website with my existing details?

A. Not at the moment. Rileys Haymarket is a little different to our other clubs, in that it does not require a membership. But you can still create an account here on the Haymarket website, which will help you book parties and do other cool things as we add them.

Q. What's this Login with Facebook thing?

A. If you have a Facebook account, (and who doesn't nowadays?) you can connect your Facebook account with your Rileys account. If you've not already done so, either join as a new member, or identify yourself as an existing member. You'll then be able to connect your Facebook account.

Q. How secure are my details?

A. Very secure. We use SSL, 128bit encryption for all sensitive information such as your accounts and payment details.
