Update: Fabric has released a statement after the outpouring of support for the club – you can read their response in full here.
According to the Evening Standard iconic London nightclub Fabric could face closure after a spate of drug-related deaths at the awarding-winning venue.
Apparently the Police have asked for the venue to have its license reviewed after 4 deaths in the last three years which were all related to ecstasy or MDMA use.
The last incident sadly saw an 18-year-old girl fall ill at the club and later die in Hospital after buying drugs in the venue.
PC Steven Harrington said in a report that the venue “attracts clientele from all over Europe and it would seem that the immaturity or lifestyle of these patrons leads to them becoming actively involved in the taking of illegal drugs and this could account for the disproportionate and wholly unacceptable number of deaths and near death incidents at the venue.”
For the club to stay open the Police want the owners to beef up on security, including using an ID scheme, and use more sniffer dogs to weed out the dealers.
This year the club celebrated its 15th birthday and is widely regarded as the best club in the London thanks to its underground booking policy and its iconic compilation series.
