Location: London, UK
Entering the Top 100 Clubs list for the first time last year, this 19th century warehouse located in Wapping Lane has been a worthy addition to the London’s club land. What once was a vast storage unit for imported goods, Tobacco Dock is now home to a plethora of parties.
One of their staple events is Drumcode, last year hosting a mammoth Halloween bash with Adam Beyer and LWE (the venue's exclusive promoters) inviting Matador, Levon Vincent, Maya Jane Coles and many more to join them across the three Gallery rooms.
The main room — known as the Great Gallery — is a sensory experience with exposed iron roof modelled on the building’s 1811 original design, and expertly mastered laser system. Notable events include Sidexside, putting a headline DJ in each room to b2b on rotation all night long; Jamie Jones, Guy Gerber and Leon Vynehall were amongst those who took the challenge.
This year, Hot Since 82 will be bringing his Labyrinth party to the Dock, from Ibiza to the Big Smoke for a special one-off show. With a powerhouse like LWE to program the space we have no doubt Tobacco Dock will continue to bring the heat long after the summer ends.
