Long running Brick Lane nightspot 93 Feet East is set to reopen immediately after successfully lodging an appeal against the revocation of its alcohol and entertainment license which was issued following a large scale police raid on the club last December involving no less than 175 officers. The action was taken as part of Operation Condor; a wider spread police focus on licensing offences and saw 9 people arrested at the venue including two on suspicion of intent to supply drugs and five for possession of narcotics.
Speaking on the appeal the club had the following to say via their official Facebook page:
“We are delighted to announce that on 17th May 2013, Thames Magistrates’ Court allowed 93 Feet East’s appeal against the decision of Tower Hamlets council on 7th January 2013 to close 93 Feet East. 93 Feet East, which has been at the heart of Brick Lane’s evening economy since the year 2000 as part of The Old Truman Brewery, is free to reopen immediately.”
Hosts to both club nights and live music performances, the venue has been home to many of the capitals most popular parties such as Urban Nerds and the Sunday event Fuse. We’re sure a lot of people will be glad to see 93 back on it’s feet…
