Dalston club Dance Tunnel has announced it will close its doors in August, citing Hackney’s “licensing climate”.
Owner Dan Beaumont posted on the Kingsland High street venue’s Facebook page this morning to break the news.
He wrote: “We regret to announce that Dance Tunnel is to close it’s doors in August.
“Sadly the licensing climate in Hackney has made it impossible for us to get the hours we need to make Dance Tunnel sustainable in the long term.
“We would like to sincerely apologise to all the Tunnel Dancers who we are letting down. We really tried to make it work. Thanks to all the artists, DJs, promoters and family members who have shared their favourite music and moments with us over the last three-and-a-bit years.
