One of the worlds greatest clubs in London, Fabric.. Has been shut down for good. Islington council ordered it closed last night after 6 deaths in the last 6 years from drugs.

Compare that to the 108 deaths in the same period in Met Police custody.

Huge blow for London nightlife... Seems the newly launched 'Night Tube' is becoming redundant before it's even really started.

And so the crusade against Londons globally renown club establishment continues. That leaves only really Ministry of Sound left... And they've tried to close that down too for being too noisy next to a planned residential tower.

Gentrification gone wrong.

Disgusting. It is nothing more than an unwanted moral crusade by the police and council planning authorities. A complete waste of tax payers money. If someone dies of a self-inflicted drug overdose on a street or in any building do we close them for good?

They've been after the site the club is on for years. It's more to do with development and backhand deals than drugs.

The corrupt and devious side of London.

London's nightlife seems to turn even more colourless...

Luckily there's still places like Berlin.

There we have it then! Corruption at Islington Council!

Quote:
'Operation Lenor' and the real reason Fabric was shut down

Exclusive: New documents obtained through a Freedom Of Information request show Fabric closure was a long term plan orchestrated by a cash-strapped council, with the police as pawns and drug legislation as a constant, convenient excuse.

On the night of Tuesday 7 September, London’s iconic Fabric nightclub was permanently closed. The trigger for Fabric’s suspension and subsequent closure was allegedly the deaths of two individuals as a result of drug taking on the premises on 25 June and 6 August.

However, documents obtained by The Independent via a Freedom of Information request show that Fabric’s closure was a long pre-planned event, orchestrated by a cash-strapped council, using the police as pawns.

Islington Council’s official statement regarding the closure lists 11 bullet points (below) justifying the decision. Two of these directly relate to the deaths of the two individuals. A further eight relate to an undercover police operation that took place in the venue in July 2016.

well biased as it may appear, he's not wrong is he? the place is still renowned whereas the only thing london's club scene is renowned for these days is vanishing.

this not really being the relevant thread, perhaps we could always debate this over a beer in Plastic People, Cable, Passing Clouds, the Cross, the End, Turnmills, the Arches, Herbal, Vibe Bar... or maybe we couldn't.

A Citytalk & Urban Issues topic.

They supposedly closed it in order to help the fight against drug use, but such closures only help the 'underground' rave scene.

If you believe that, you'll believe anything. Fabric was very strict on drugs usage.
And praised by the Met Police every year... (Until August).

When the club opened, the founders refused gangs using it for trafficking and subsequently had to travel everywhere with bullet proof vests on. They had sniffer dogs on the door and holding rooms for offenders inside.

This is nothing to do with drugs... Everything to do with Farringdon's multi million pound gentrification project.

Who said I believed it. I started my post with "they supposedly".

Nevertheless it's a Citytalk & Urban Issues topic (as opposed to Projects & Construction) and our fustrations in the intl forum should be vented there.

Asif Khan and MINI to install "forests" across east London

London architect Asif Khan will install three plant-filled rooms across Shoreditch for this year's London Design Festival.

Khan's Forests installation for MINI Living is intended to create places for people to meet up on their way to and from work.

The MINI installation features three themed rooms named Connect, Create and Relax – all located in busy areas in Shoreditch.

Each of the plant-filled spaces are underpinned by the Japanese idea of shinrin-yoku, which translates to forest bathing.
