Social media blackout sparks fears that Fabric may close again

The London nightspot was previously shut down in 2016

Fears that iconic London nightclub Fabric may be set to close its doors again have resurfaced after the venue scrapped its social media posts.

When users click on the club’s Twitter, Instagram and official website they are greeted by a single black square. Its Facebook account has been deleted.

The venue has also boarded up its entrance according to Crack Magazine. NME is yet to receive a comment from the venue.

But listings on Resident Advisor suggest that the club has events on until the end of March.

The Farringdon venue was saved from permanent closure in 2016 after the night spot appealed against a decision to strip the club of its license after a spate of drug-related deaths.

The iconic club was controversially closed on September 7 that year after Islington Council revoked its license following a seven-hour meeting.

However, the club launched an appeal against its closure shortly after the verdict was announced. The outcome of the appeal was announced in November 2016, with the club winning back its license after lengthy discussions between Islington Council and Fabric’s owners.

In a statement issued after the verdict, it was explained that Fabric’s owners had “offered many new additional conditions to be added to its Licence, all of which are designed to ensure a Zero Tolerance approach to drug possession, consumption and sale within the club”.

These conditions included lifetime bans for anyone trying to buy, sell, or consume drugs on the premises or upon entry. Entry to the club would be monitored by a new I.D. scanning system and there would be improved lighting, additional CCTV provision and covert surveillance within the club.

It has since continued to operate as normal, thought the current social media blackout suggests otherwise.
