The legendary UK garage night is forced to relocate from London's The End club...
The organisers of UK garage night TWICE AS NICE have announced their relocation from THE END nightclub in LONDON, following the shooting of a man outside the venue in the early hours of Monday morning (November 13).
Managing Director of Twice As Nice, Steve Gordon, issued the statement to explain the cancellation of a party scheduled for November 19 – following the shooting of the as-yet-unidentified, 31-year-old male following a visit to the club.
“Due to the overwhelming response from our birthday, (huge demand above venue capacity), coupled with a street robbery on one of our customers, we feel that with the huge interest in our nights this may put our customers’ safety at risk,” read the statement. “The Twice as Nice policy is that we always put our customers’ enjoyment first and everything else secondary.”
The statement continues: “We have decided to relocate our London night. This will, of course, be happening in the very near future. We have had extremely positive interest from venues across London.”
Twice As Nice has been resident at The End on Sunday nights for four years. The night, which boasts Spoony from The Dreem Team as one of its residents, was instrumental in raising awareness of the music now known as UK garage. The club is still continuing with its residency at Vivid And Elite in Romford, Essex and one-offs across the country until they find a new London venue.
Bosses at The End have declined to issue a statement. Police have cleared the club of any involvement of the incident.
Anyone with any information on the shooting, which took place in nearby Museum Street, should contact Operation Trident on 020 7321 9640.
