T Bar has become the latest London club to close its doors, according to widespread internet reports. It's the latest in a string of recent club closures to hit London, with Matter shutting its doors for the summer, and Fabric, though open, going up for sale.
A message reportedly sent out to members of the venue's facebook group last night announced the closure:
"It is with great sadness that I have to announce that T Bar is now closed. After six and a half years of incredible music, outrageously good times and spectacular memories we are calling time on the T Bar rave.
Thanks to you all for your support, loyalty and for making T Bar the special place it has been for so long...
Big love. The T Bar boys and girls"
As yet, however, the club is yet to release any official statement, either on their website or related facebook groups and pages.
T Bar, originally famed for its free entry policy and cutting-edge line-ups, moved from Shoreditch to to its current venue in Houndsditch, East London, last year. The move saw it begin charging for events for the first time, and this, combined with the controversial new venue, may have contributed to the reported closure.
Nevertheless, this will be a huge shock and disappointment to clubbers not only in London, but across the UK and Europe.
