Every clubbing city has a staple; a star at its centre everything else revolves around. For London, it's undoubtedly Fabric.
Farringdon's Fabric is one for the locals — the heads. It has its fair share of curious foreigners, sure, many of whom residing in London, popped in one night, fell in love with the place and return every week.
What's really remarkable about this ex-meat storage facility opposite Smithfields market, though, is what it's achieved for British club culture especially.
Still flying the flag for one of the UK's first loves, d&b, Playaz reached its 150th benchmark at the end of last year, while the 'Fabric Live' mix series strides on, trailblazing a path for switched-on minds to follow.
The place where Ricardo Villalobos returns to play for hours on end on the regular, and home to two of the most fiercely skilled DJs to ever grace a DJ booth — Craig Richards and Terry Francis — Fabric really is the focal point; the rich fibre that makes London clubland what it is today.
