Report: London’s Fabric nightclub under threat of closure

Iconic venue’s licence is under review tonight over recent drug-related deaths.

It may have played host to almost every DJ and producer worth their salt, but those salts may be put under a microscope in the coming weeks as London’s iconic nightclub Fabric undergoes a license review at the request of the Metropolitan Police.

The decision comes following a number of drug-related incidents at the venue, which have been linked to four deaths and eight people collapsing over the last three years. Police have stated that the complete stripping of Fabric’s license is being “seriously considered.” Islington Council will consider the review tonight.

Twice crowned the best club in the world by DJ Magazine, Fabric recently celebrated its 15th birthday with a weekend of parties in October. The club has played host to a number of high profile DJs since its inception, with Four Tet, Daniel Avery and Seth Troxler all regulars behind the decks in recent years.

In the past few weeks, London venues Buffalo Bar and Madame Jojo’s have been forced to close. The latter was due to a violent incident, but days after its initial shutdown, plans were enforced to regenerate an entire area of Soho.
