Is London Nightlife Doomed?

Perhaps a little exaggerated but it’s been a tough week for London nightlife.

seOne, London’s biggest (and perhaps cheesiest) venue closed its doors on Monday, but has now reopened as a live venue ie. for bands and such.

Ministry of Sound, the world’s most famous club, is under threat of losing its entertainment licence as a property company has submitted plans for a residential development across the road.  Please sign the online petition opposing the development here or (click the image above) to save this 18 year old legend.

Plastic People is known as the best small club in London, with the best sound system in a small club and is the most desirable venue for promoters.  It’s certainly our favourite venue in London, but it too is under threat as it is served with a police notice after 16 years of running.

This all comes after last years closure of legendary club – The End.

To top it all off BBC’s 6 music station is facing closure, according to a leaked strategy report.  The digital station, which features Erol Alkan, Andrew Weatherall, Dave Pearce and Craig Charles amongst its presenters, is under pressure following criticism from broadcasting watchdog BBC Trust.
