UNDR opens in Hackney



The Nest has been brought by new owners and had a rebrand, the basement club goes by the name of UNDR Hackney.

The venue will be one of the few in Hackney with a late licence and the only venue in that area with a 4 am license, UNDR is a cosy basement space that immerses you deep in the party, with 20 newly installed lasers, a fully upgraded Martin Audio sound system, reprogrammed lighting and will be dedicated to flying the flag for genuine underground arts and culture in London.

Matt Wells – the new owner says “I believe that The Nest was always the best intimate clubbing experience in the capital. We’ve now improved the core elements of that experience, namely the Martin Audio sound and lighting. These changes were made to further enhance the customer experience and ensure that UNDR can showcase the best up-and-coming raw talent in music alongside some legends. I own and operate my venues from an independent standpoint, and therefore allow my team to have a free-flowing creative edge. I believe this will be illustrated in our bookings and the culture within the venue.”

A full programme of events will follow in the coming days, but it’s already time to mark UNDR on your map.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
