London's most iconic club Fabric closed 'indefinitely' following teen deaths

London's most iconic club Fabric closed 'indefinitely' following teen deaths

After a 17 year tenure as London's premier night club and the UK's most renowned late-night venue, Fabric has been shut "indefinitely".

The Farringdon club has come under much scrutiny after teen deaths in the past few years, with the license being revoked and a review will be held in the next 28 days.

Earlier this month, an 18-year-old male collapsed outside the club and was pronounced dead shortly after. This tragic event followed the death of another 18-year-old who fell ill at the Farringdon venue in June.

A spokesman from the Metropolitan Police said: "Officers felt the need to act due to concerns about the safety of those attending the club because of the supply of class A drugs in the venue and the recent deaths of two young men linked to the club."

Fabric has not issued a statement regarding the development but the club said the following of its weekend closure: "For the past two years fabric has operated without incident but tragically in the past nine weeks two 18-year-old boys have died as a consequence of drug overdoses. In order to understand how this has happened we have agreed with the police and other agencies to suspend our operation while we investigate. The club will therefore be closed this weekend".

Over the past few years, Fabric has been in a constant heated dialogue with scrutiny from the Metropolitan Police and Islington Council.
