Location: London, UK
Its cavernous, industrial space and epic waterside location make Tobacco Dock a truly unique clubbing venue. Based inside a 19th-century warehouse in Wapping, London, the former dockside storage facility is now home to epic and elaborate events including Drumcode’s infamous Halloween parties.
The sprawling space features plenty of reminders of its industrial past, with statues and staircases leading you around the more modern glass structures. Inside the main room — known as the Great Gallery — the building combines old and (very) new with a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system reflecting on the iron roof, modelled on the building’s original design. The laser system is the cherry on top, providing an immersive sensory experience.
Over the past 12 months, Tobacco Dock has hosted everything from Junction 2’s techno heavyweights and Hot Since 82’s popular Labyrinth event to lead promoter LWE’s epic New Year’s party. Spread across 16,000 square meters, it’s definitely one of London’s most impressive spaces to get lost in music in, with the production team constantly pushing the boundaries to create unrivalled immersive experiences. While Tobacco Dock may not be hosting electronic music events every weekend, when they do, they do it right.
