The club is billed as “an intimate new space for music lovers”.

London has a fresh music venue and nightclub on the way called The Pickle Factory, set to open in October.

As RA reports, the venue was a pickle factory in a previous life, and is being run by Oval Space co-founder Jordan Gross and design engineer and sustainability consultant Michael Guerra.

The 250-capacity club is located in Bethnal Green opposite the well-established Oval Space, and is described as “an intimate new space for music lovers” with “minimal frills, stripped-back lighting and a top of the range, as-yet-unreleased soundsystem” provided by German company d&b audiotechnik.

The space has been used by Oval Space for pop-ups and exhibitions since 2013, though this relaunch marks its first time as a venue for live music.

No line-ups have been announced yet, but according to the venue, the midweek schedule will consist of live shows while the Oval Space team are overseeing Fridays with “plenty of unannounced guests, no more than three artists per night, and all-night long sets as standard.” A rotating programme of promoters will take care of Saturday nights.

News of the venue comes at turbulent time for London’s clubs. Recent figures showed the UK had lost almost half of its nightclubs in 10 years, though last month saw the news of a fresh nightclub opening in South London called Phonox.
