Fabric will close its doors indefinitely while Islington Council reviews the famous London nightclub's license.
The news comes after two teenagers died of drug-related causes over the last nine weeks, with fabric forced to shut over the weekend so an investigation could commence.
The club has now had its license suspended indefinitely following a review requested by the borough’s police team — there will be a full review hearing to decide the club’s fate later this month.
“Officers felt the need to act due to concerns about the safety of those attending the club because of the supply of class A drugs in the venue and the recent deaths of two young men linked to the club,” said a Met spokesman.
An Islington Council spokesman responded: “After two recent drug-related deaths, the Metropolitan Police applied for an interim suspension of Fabric’s licence.
“Fabric agreed not to contest this application, and a licensing sub-committee has today suspended Fabric’s licence.
“This will be followed by a review of Fabric’s licence within 28 days.”
Fabric announced on Saturday that all ticket holders will be refunded via Resident Advisor.
