London is getting a new 25,000-square-ft club, HERE

A new venue is opening in Central London this September called HERE.

The club will be situated four stories beneath Soho's Denmark Street, and have a capacity of 2,000 people. It forms part of a redevelopment project in the area, called Outernet London, which has been going on for a number of years.

The team behind the 25,000-square-foot space have described it as the "first venue to be purpose built in Central London since the 1940s", and it will host live concerts and electronic music club nights upon opening. According to social media posts, HERE will also come with "cutting edge audio and visual technology".

London promoter Simon Denby, part of the team behind both Percolate and London's Waterworks festival, and New York artist Nicolas Matar, will oversee the programming of the new venue's club nights.

Speaking collectively to Resident Advisor about their plans for the space, Denby and Matar said: "We're focusing on a diverse range of electronic music, with club and live shows reflecting the makeup of London's diverse and exciting musical heritage. It will also be a space to host the best of worldwide touring talent with all its contemporary and eclectic musical strands."

They continued: "Top-level production is at the heart of the project. The sound treatment is more like that of a music studio, but on a very large scale unseen in London clubland. It features the latest D&B Audiotechnik sound system installation, a top-spec lighting rig and a huge 8K resolution screen."

Another venue will also open in the same space, called The Lower Third. Run also by the team behind the Outernet redevelopment project, the 350-capacity space, previously known as 12 Bar Club, had been closed since early 2015.
