Music is a bit old but it doesn't matter because you can have a hhgoood time with friends and also the vibe is good. It's could also be a bit expensive

After going for about 4 years things have changed, the vodka hurts my stomach now and the cracks not as good as it used to be but it's alright

Typical club looking for student business. Cheap drinks, guest list discounts for entry and the occasional special event. Good change of pace with the alternative night Venom as well.

Pound drinks, what more can you say? Amazing atmosphere, cheap entry and good music. The place to be on a Monday, Friday and Saturday!

I love going to pash#1 on Saturday nights, the atmosphere is fantastic. Illusions is a fantastic venue, with two rooms of different music, you never get bored; the staff are always friendly in the bar and on the door. The offer of the vip section is great for big groups or when needed to celebrate a birthday or something special.

Not as bad as people will say from around the area; illusions/passion as other people call it has a variety of nights that please everyone’s music taste. Thursday’s are Venom Rock Night, Monday’s are dance/techno with a hint of 90’s Classics and Fridays are the indie night of the week at illusions. All in all they’re guaranteed to get you mortal while enjoying the atmosphere. Monday’s are the busiest nights with the north east locals weirdly having an undying passion for passion’s techno music vibes. £10 gets you entry as well as 10 single drinks or shots of your choice, or a double drink + mixer for 2 if those spots.

in my opinion illusions is the best nightclub in the whole of sunderland. entry fee is cheap at two pounds. i like the music genre a lot because they play songs that are well known internationally. There are very attractive female dancers who are sexy and alluring. The toilets are relatively clean. The location is good and easily accessable. The club visitors are very attractive and friendly. Overall it is a very good place for a night out with friends and to look for a possible hook up. illusions is my go to club in sunderland, it beats other clubs for sure.

Illusions accommodates a variety of nights including rock nights, RnB etc and is the core of the Sunderland nightlife, other than independent. Drink prices are very reasonable also.
