    I am a dual slovenian-UK national. I don't like taking my UK passport around at night but I also have a Slovenian ID card (it's a credit card with a chip and the typical OCR code). Is that enough to enter a UK club or do I need a passport?

    Clubs are quite strict, if you don't want to use your passport you could invest in a provisional license.

    Passport or UK Driving License is pretty much the only way to guarantee you'll be let in. I understand the reservation about taking your passport with you, but if you don't have a driving license it's what you'll have to do.

    It really depends on the club, most of the bigger ones will probably take issue. Its probably worth investing in a different ID, provisional is guaranteed to work but I also know a few people who used citizen cards which are a bit cheaper and should be accepted (although I'm not sure what clubs view on these is anymore).

    If you mean the EU ID card with which you can travel as if it was a passport around the EU, then yes
