Here's some depressing news for anybody who likes having fun in London – Plastic People will shut it's doors this week. The intimate Shoreditch club will host "Last Dance" tomorrow, before closing down for good.
The club has been an integral part of London's dance music scene during the 2000s, having hosted the FWD>> parties along with residencies from Four Tet, Floating Points and Theo Parrish.
The club has flirted with closure before, most notably in 2010 when the police tried to remove its license "to prevent public nuisance". After co-operating with the authorities four years ago the club was allowed to remain open, but this time it would appear that the closure is final.
We've contacted Plastic People's owners to try and determine exactly why the club is closing down and whether or not they'll be moving somewhere else.
For anybody who's been to Plastic People, they'll know that it's a fantastic club, notable for it's intimacy and wonderful atmosphere. After the mooted closure of the George Tavern, Madame Jojos shutting down and the strict regulations imposed on Fabric, it's yet another nail in the coffin of London's nightlife. Where is everybody going to go?
