London venue 93 Feet East is to reopen, after appealing against Tower Hamlets council's decision to shut its doors earlier this year.

The club was involved in the Operation Condor raid in December 2012, which saw the Metropolitan Police target 2,487 venues in London over one weekend in an attempt to crack down on crimes related to licensing laws. As many as 175 officers were involved in the raid on 93 Feet East.

Writing in a statement on their official website last week, the venue said: "We are delighted to announce that on 17th May 2013, Thames Magistrates' Court allowed 93 Feet East’s appeal against the decision of Tower Hamlets council on 7th January 2013 to close 93 Feet East. 93 Feet East, which has been at the heart of Brick Lane's evening economy since the year 2000, is free to reopen immediately."

Ten people were arrested during the raid on the venue, including two people arrested on suspicion of drug dealing and five on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs. The owner/occupier of the premises was also arrested for being concerned in the supply of drugs, along with one person suspected of being an illegal immigrant and another for being drunk and disorderly. In total, the raids resulted in 173 arrests across London with 43 warrants executed.

93 Feet East is located on Brick Lane and is part of the Old Truman Brewery conversion. There are currently no new events confirmed.
