Fabric London saved from closure

December 19, 2014 -

Yesterday sparked a worrying day for electronic music and London's nightlife with the local Islington Council reviewing Fabric's licence after a series of drug related deaths over the last 3 years. For 2 years in 2007/2008 the world renowned club was voted 'Best Club in the World' in DJ Mag's Top 100, as well as Number 2 in 2009 and 2010. The news of Fabric's possible closure proved to be a catalyst for thousands of fans starting Facebook groups (over 44,000 likes in one day) and signing petitions to keep the 15 year old 2,500 capacity club open.

However this morning news broke that Fabric had indeed retained it's licence but only on the condition that sniffer dogs are on patrol at the nightclub. As well as several £300 a night dogs there will be improved CCTV, stronger ID checks and stricter searches. Overall this is superb news for London and club goers around the world, however owners Cameron Leslie and Keith Reilly have revealed that they will be challenging the decision.
