Lots of the venues I liked the look of in London (e.g. Cable) are gone and won't come back.Phonox opens next month. But that's just Plan B rebranded under new management.
Same with Studio 338. Relatively "new" in it's current incarnation, but previously traded under different names.
This has been going on for years ... I sometimes wonder if the headliner costs kills the club after a while; anyone remember bed in Sheffield ? What a venue !! I believe one of the reasons it shut was a problem with the drains under the venue and with the massive headliner fees it was much cheaper to shut!It's not always greed though. Sometimes the prices are dictated by the cost of headliners and venue hire
There's a rumour of a reopening of the Emporium, but it's just a rumour at the moment. Seeing will be believing.My clubbing haunts
Crasher/Gatecrasher 1 Passion/The Emporium,
Inside out/Pressue/The Arches,
Godskitchen/Air or Code
All Shut as far as I I know now.
I am all Booked and heading to Creams closing party October... Probably opening new venue in 2016 in time for birthdays post summer.
Passion being kept alive by JFK and lufbra university.
I've got hotels booked for all 3 events. 17th is looking like it'll be a more classic lineup with Oakey, Seb & Jon PW all hinting they'll be on it.I am all Booked and heading to Creams closing party October... Probably opening new venue in 2016 in time for birthdays post summer.
