Fabric nightclub is to reopen after a rescue deal was approved by a judge, according to new reports.
In what was described by our Northern Correspondent John Locke as a “bullshit decision”, the nightclub was closed down in September after two teenagers died after taking drugs at the club.
But today a district judge at Highbury Corner Magistrates agreed the club could reopen following talks with police and Islington Council
JUST ANNOUNCED: @fabriclondon will reopen. Thanks to all who helped find a solution that protects the club’s future & keeps clubbers safe.

The news will come as a victory to the protesters who gathered outside the club following its closure.
In Locke’s words, the closure “stinks of the gentrification and segregation occurring between the haves and have nots and the rich, powerful and corruptible in London”.
Long live Fabric!
