Fabric to reopen after it wins closure appeal

Fabric has won its appeal to reopen nightclub after the licence was revoked.

I know what you’re thinking.. is this a joke?! Like I don’t think you could play with our emotions like that. Didn’t we already feel the loss of the club the last few months. Dublin Soho can confirm that this is no joke. So let’s celebrate this one as its PROBABLY the best news you’ll get on a Monday this year!


The re-opening comes with strict rules to be enforced. Eh do we care? Just get Fabric open already. The publicity raised during the #SaveFabric battle has only done wonders for the Club. Social media, Fabric DJ’s, party goers, pretty much anyone who experienced Fabric, got behind the campaign to turn the closure around.

We just can’t wait for the Fabric re-opening party. Its sure to attract an incredible lineup just like it’s closing did. The anticipation is already killing us. The public have a lot to be proud of. Big applause all round!

I’ll leave you with the official statement for Fabric. Tick tock, tick tock!


Statement from Fabric

We are hugely thankful to be able to confirm the news that we have won our licence back. We owe everything to our supporters. We really would not be here today without your unparalleled support and generosity.

So many different people stepped up to put their voices to our cause, artists from all corners of the music community, fellow promoters who have put on huge events from us and clubbers from around the world who all united behind us.

We’ve even seen people sporting their #savefabric T Shirts on the other side of this planet showing just how big this thing is.

So, thank you to all of you. Without the strength of your backing this would not have happened.

You saved Fabric.

We’ll be back with some news about #saveourculture and our next steps when we can.


St Paddy’s Dublin Gig Guide

Luckily the good promoters of Dublin always ensure that we’re spoiled for choice when a public holiday comes up. They really don’t help our liver though.

Dublin Soho have put together our top 5 gigs happening in the next 24 hours for you to mull over!

  1. Sven Vath @ Pyg
  2. Green Velvet @ Button Factory
  3. Todd Terry @ The Grand Social
  4. Disco Brunch @ Drury Buildings
  5. Julio Bashmore @ Opium Rooms

1. Sven Vath @ Pyg

Pappa Sven returns to a sold out gig in Pyg for it’s 7th Birthday TONIGHT. What better way to celebrate a birthday than bringing these two deadly German’s to Pyg. If you haven’t got a ticket I’m sure you’ll be devastated to miss this one. Along with Sven comes Matthias Tanzmann who takes over room 2. This one is sure to get messy!

Tickets: Sold out 😦


2. Green Velvet @ Button Factory


Green Velvet plays tonight at the Sense & Curve night at the Button Factory and promises to be doing what he does best. Local talent Dan Stritch is also on support. Tickets can still be purchased at the door but get there early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets: €25 + booking fee


3. Toddy Terry @ The Grand Social


Brooklyn born House DJ Terry returns to Dublin after a very long stint away (Where have you been on our lives). The Network crew have put a very decent lineup together with big support and warm up duties from dj’s Liam Dollard, The Chillage Idiots and Jay Carroll.

Tickets: €20 on the door

4. Disco Brunch @ Drury Buildings


The Disco Brunch has become ridiculously popular in the last two years. We love our brunch but we love it more with disco beats from the disco brunch guys in the background. Trust me! There’s nothing tame about this one. That’s why it’s our top 4. And the food is delish too. Tickets are sold out for the brunch affair but you can gain entry at 5pm for a fiver for plenty of dancing and mischief.

5. Julio Bashmore @ Opium Rooms


Julio may have appeared to burst on to the scene in late 2009, but the lead up to the Julio Bashmore EP for Claude VonStroke’s highly influential Dirtybird label was essentially a lifetime in the making. He returns to Opium rooms tonight and is sure its a Paddy’s eve you won’t forget! Support on the night from Boots & Kats.

Bashmore Tickets €20 + booking fee
