Fabric to reopen after last minute appeal | News | MN2S

Farringdon nightclub Fabric is to reopen after a last-minute appeal, three months after its controversial closure by Islington council.

Fabric was forcibly closed this September after two drug-related deaths were blamed on the venue’s poor practice. The electronic music community, MN2S included, rallied around the club to push for it to stay open, as despite what authorities argued, Fabric was known to be a bastion of good practice with a zero tolerance policy on drugs.

Fabric’s closure caused much soul searching in the dance community, with various think pieces wondering if London’s nightlife was doomed as Fabric was the latest in a long list of club closures. After a hard fought campaign to, as the venue put it, #savefabric, the club has struck a deal with Islington council to reopen, as long as it operates as a ‘gold standard’ of zero-tolerance drug policy.

News of the club’s reopening has been warmly greeted by fans of club culture, with Resident Advisor, DJ Mag, and Time Out already praising the deal. Even the Mayor of London himself is overjoyed at the news. Sadiq Khan was saddened by Fabric’s closure, speaking out in their favour at the time.

As more details about the new deal become clear, there will be more questions to ask, and no doubt more think pieces to accompany them, but for now, we can celebrate. Fabric themselves humbly place the success of their appeal on the shoulders of their supporters, tweeting today: “It’s true. You saved Fabric.”
