Fabric reopening?


#21

Weird that they’ve just banned 18 year olds from attending on a weekend

The lifetime ban for drugs is ridiculous too (and I say that as someone who doesn’t take drugs)


#22

Beware the girl/guy wearing the enormous novelty stetson - they might have an ulterior motive for wanting to dance with you.


#23

“Covert surveillance within the club” was what I meant to quote.


#24

‘Covert surveillance within the club’ means police inside at all times, from the sound of things.


#25

But cops can’t dance!


#26

load of fuss over nothing really wasnt it


#27

Just seems to be more cops moving in, which the average fabric patron is probably all for tbh


#28

what does that even mean


#29

people just won’t mind


#30

do they really think raising the age from 18 (assuming this is what is was before?) to 19 is meaningful?


#31

Saw this on Twitter just now:

Am I missing something, or is he saying that getting off your mash on gurners is the point of Fabric? because, as much as it’s hugely unfair to hold a club responsible for deaths which would have been prevented if we had a vaguely sensible drug policy in this country… they are illegal. They shouldn’t be (imo), but they are. So really, what choice did they have?

Surely it’s better to have a club with a strictly-enforced door policy than no club at all?

You guys hear this news about Fabric reopening? That’s like the time where I bent over and split my pants and it was the second time it happened to this specific pair of pants after me repairing them after the first incident


#33

Ha ha! Good one mate!!


#34

it’s just a really fucking stupid opinion


#35

he clarified it by saying that their fundraising campaign “was sold as a legal battle to set a better precedent for clubs in general [and] these “gold standard” conditions will be hard for smaller clubs to fulfil, might lead to wider closures”. Which is a valid concern. I’m not really a clubber myself but I see clubs closing near me all the time because they’re worth more as overpriced flats and I’m very much of the opinion that the closure of any late-night venue is shit for culture as a whole.


#36

You should patch that hole with a bit of (Amy) Lamé Fabric, mate!


#37

Hahaha! Maybe I will mate!


#38

I can see your bum!


#39

wtf is a night czar and why is it amy lame?

Something about enforcing plain clothes police officers inside a nightclub itself secretly regulating your fun is fairly Orwellian isn’t it, like not even in a special circumstance, all the time. That does sort of water down the supposed ‘culture’ of the place.
