Werkhaus, a prominent club in East London, is set to shut down next month.

The club confirmed through Instagram that it will be hosting its final events in September. The last confirmed show is scheduled for September 15th, featuring a back-to-back set by Kyle Hall and Steven Julien (formerly known as FunkinEven) for the entire night.

Luca Pilato, the general manager, expressed in a press statement, “In 2020, we were on the verge of launching an extensive new calendar with Disclosure headlining our spring season over two nights. However, we all remember what followed with the onset of Covid-19. Two years later, despite the support from our owners, our team has collectively decided that escalating operational costs, coupled with waning interest in late-night drinking culture and the limited number of late-night events we host annually, have rendered the venue unsustainable.”

Werkhaus, which was renovated and opened in September 2019, has a capacity for 300 people. It was formerly known as The Back Room of Cafe 1001, the sibling venue to Cafe 1001, which will continue to operate. The club has hosted various notable artists including Finn Johannsen, Interplanetary Criminal, and Club Fitness, among others.
