TOWIE Night Out! Where to go!

The Only Way Is Essex, commonly referred to as TOWIE by its fans, is perhaps the most popular British television show these days. The show is themed around real people, fake tans, high heels, manicures and real places. Impressed with its success and popularity, TOWIE’s fans all over the world try to emulate the colourful lifestyle it portrays. 
As the entire nation is swept by TOWIE fever, scores of fans head to Essex to visit all the hotspots shown so glamourously on the show. If you want to see all those places, it is best to find an Essex hotel and make reservations in advance. When you get there, make sure you don't go back without visiting these places: 
Sugar Hut
Sugar Hut has been shown various times throughout the series as one of the top nightlife destinations, which makes it the most crucial stop on the TOWIE night out tour. The club offers a la carte menu and wines of the highest international standards right in the heart of this famous county. Sugar Hut is located in the heart of Brentwood High Street and welcomes visitors all year round.

Minnie’s Boutique
Initially, the famous boutique was not open to public and was restricted only for shooting for the show. However, the proud owners Sam and Billie Faiers opened it for public in 2011 after TOWIE’s amazing success. The Faiers sisters certainly did not anticipate the huge crowd they received on the opening day. Thousands of young girls as well as a few men swarmed around and practically emptied the boutique within a few days of its opening. If you want a fresh posh stock of lavish dresses like the ones you see on the show, Minnie’s Boutique is the place to go to.

The King William IV 
Associated with “lunchtime gossip” on the show, The King William is a typical English pub located in Chigwell. The menu keeps changing with the season, and offers a number of traditional British favourites including steaks and fish and chips. It also offers Italian cuisine such as pizzas and home made fresh pastas. King William also offers an assortment of draft beers and cask ales for a perfect Essex night-out experience. 
Once you are done with experiencing the TOWIE phenomenon, make sure you see Essex’s other side as well. There’s a lot more to this county than just high heels and spray tans. Other spots you must visit include Burnham-on-Crouch, The Star Inn and Oyster Smack Inn.
