London’s O2 replaces Proud2 nightclub with ‘blank canvas’ venue

The club space formerly housed the Matter club

London’s O2 has replaced the Proud2 nightclub on its premises with a ‘blank canvas’ venue.

The club space was originally opened in 2008 as Matter before reopening as Proud2 after a £1 million refurbishment in 2011 when it was bought out by the Proud Galleries group. It will now be known as Building Six.

London Warehouse Events have joined forces with The O2 for the 3000 capacity club space in the Greenwich venue, which also houses the The O2 Arena and IndigO2. Building Six will host a variety of different club nights, gigs and events.

In a statement, Will Harold, the director of LWE, commented: “This is a great thing for London’s club scene right now. Promoters have been struggling to find the spaces they need to accommodate the level of talent there is out there. Dance music is growing and this is the perfect venue to take it to the next level, specially with the amazing body sonic dancefloor and layout, this makes it the perfect space for any event.”

General manager of The O2 Rebecca Kane, added: “I am very excited at the prospect of working with LWE to deliver some cool events in Building Six – our newest space within The O2. The high profile club nights the promoter is renowned for delivering are a perfect fit for the warehouse-style space the venue offers. This deal also highlights the diversity of entertainment offered at The O2.”
