Fabric Review

Fabric is one of the top clubs in London. Situated underground in trendy Clerkenwell (used to be a Victorian meat cellar back in the day) Fabric has one of the most impressive sound systems in London, three dancefloors spread over 24,000 square feet, a 2,500 capacity, a 24 hr license and some of the world’s leading dj’s playing Drum 'n' Base, Hip Hop, Funk and House music. Nothing else needs mentioning other than maybe the bass loaded body sonic dancefloor – an experience you shouldn’t miss if you’re into your clubbing.

“Fabric is the best club in London. The atmosphere is amazing. There are so many different kinds of people who make you feel welcome. The music is out of this world and Fabric know how to get the best people in. I have been about 20 times and each time is better than the last time. I love it.”

“Overall effectiveness: Fabric is a good nightclub with some very good features, including the interior of the building and the general decor. The effective leadership of the venue ensures a safe and enjoyable night out for customers. The main strengths and weaknesses are: *the club has a good atmosphere *leadership ensures sound value for money *a wide range of rooms, music genres and DJs ensure a good quality and range of provision *the interior decor of club is very effective *the queue is often very long and admittance is costly. Commentary: Prices of drinks are in line with the London average and with a fairly pricey admission fee, the venue offers sound value for money. There are a range of good rooms to visit throughout the night playing different genres of music, so variety is very well catered for. Cleanliness is good and toilets are satisfactory. Location is sound, as it is just away from the busy West End area. Well worth a visit. DTPM on a Sunday night at Fabric is very popular and has a great atmosphere. The most important things the club should do to improve are: *Improve admission flow in to the club *investigate cost effectiveness of admisison charges.”

“Fabric may attract some of the best names and have visually impressive decor but its the atmosphere that counts. The crowd is just a bit too varied to gell - quite. In short it looks terrific has great sound systems and light shows...but it ain't got no soul. That's not so say its bad - just that it could be so much better. My personal recommendation is that you keep on walking and pop into Turnmills.”

“I've been to Fabric a few times now and I’ve never been that impressed on what it had to offer. Long queues and then a hefty door charge. However I think my last visit will definitely be the last. If I can give anyone some advice it would be to keep your belongings very safe (obviously, that’s nothing knew) but its not the other punters you need to be wary of - it's the staff!! I was in a VIP or a restricted access area when I put my bad down next to my feet and in close proximity for a couple of minutes. It was a large bag (big girlie bag with loads of crap inside) so to find my phone and my money you would have to take everything out first! Anyway within a few moments later it was gone. I immediately asked the bar staff who were also in close vicinity to the bag and they told me that a member of security had removed it. They said I could collect it at the cloak rooms. When I went upstairs to collect it there were no problems. It was only when I had tried to get a cab afterwards that I realised approx £30 and my mobile were missing!!! There was no way on earth someone would have had the time and patience to search through my bag, with me standing next to it. The only conclusion I can come to is that the content had been taken whilst in the hands the club employees. Which very much worries me because its make me wonder who else has this happened to and can we do anything about it?”

“Fabric is a ding, dirty and dark hole, I did not enjoy it at all. It lacks style and class of any kind and I would not rate it amongst any of the clubs in London!”

“This is a venue for music, especially drum & bass on Fridays. Don''t expect anything about drinks, as one of the previous reviewers mentioned. The bass sound quality is probably one of the world''s best though the high-pitched sound is a bit of squeal. The structure inside is maze-like. So if you''re a first-timer, it''s like an adventure. I recommend going to this club on the last friday of every month, when True Playaz, one of the best drum & bass record label, organises a party. Be prepared for queuing or enter early in the evening. If you arrive late without an advanced ticket, it can take 2 hours to enter. The entrance is about 12 quid. I think it''s worth paying for sound quality.”

“Things have changed at Fabric over the years. Once it was the underground club that everyone was talking about, now its kind of like your local Weatherspoons, but in the dark. With really loud music and expensive drinks in plastic cups! It has the biggest collection of varied people, who really dont know what to make of one another, Rude boys and girls, baggy trousered dancers, 40 year old women on hen nights, the lot! But if you havnt been, go this weekend, you wont find a club anywhere who have spent so much time on attention to detail, to make your night one you wont forget! unless you do way too much!”
