New London venue The Bridge aims to fill the void left by Studio 338

Following the well-documented fire at the Greenwich-based music and arts venue, the team behind Studio 338 have shown incredible positivity in the face of adversity. Aware that London’s nightclubs are closing at an alarming rate they have stepped in to convert one of their other music venues into a new hub for underground electronic music

Located on the borders of Hackney Wick and Bow in the heart of the East End The Bridge is a 500 capacity space set across 2 floors and several outdoor areas. With a brand new VOID acoustics sound system throughout. The Bridge will launch officially in November but there will be a number of preview shows for September and October announced in the coming days.

The Bridge is an exciting new direction for my team and I whilst we work on rebuilding Studio 338. The smaller size presents an opportunity for some really cutting edge programming and we already have a number of my friends and favourite promoters like Toi Toi and Undersound, as well as my own co-owned Art of Dark on board for the initial preview parties.

My plan is to create a program which is a mix of residencies from some of the most forward-thinking promoters and DJ’s, as well as staging long sets from some of the world’s best selectors for our in-house series of events. Ultimately, I would like The Bridge to become a new hub for underground live and electronic music in East London. Somewhere with a program thats consistently good enough for people to be able to come whenever they like and hear something great” – Music and Events Director Dan Perrin
