93 Feet East

East London club 93 Feet East is coming back five months after a police raid led to the venue having its licence revoked by Tower Hamlets Council amidst allegations the business had not done enough to combat the dealing and consumption of illegal substances on the premises.

But late last week Thames Magistrates Court seemingly upheld an appeal against the actions of Tower Hamlets Council, which means the venue can now reopen with pretty much immediate effect.

In a statement on the club’s website, 93 Feet East management said: “We are delighted to announce that on 17 May 2013, Thames Magistrates’ Court allowed 93 Feet East’s appeal against the decision of Tower Hamlets Council on 7 Jan 2013 to close 93 Feet East. 93 Feet East, which has been at the heart of Brick Lane’s evening economy since the year 2000, is free to reopen immediately”.
