Oval Space to launch second London venue, The Pickle Factory

As many London nightspots close their doors for the last time in what seems like a mass fun-cull across the city, a new venue has popped up in Hackney. The 250-capacity club is located in Bethnal Green opposite the well-established Oval Space, and is described as “an intimate new space for music lovers” with “minimal frills, stripped-back lighting and a top of the range, as-yet-unreleased sound system” provided by German company d&b audiotechnik.

No line-ups have been announced yet, but according to the venue, the midweek schedule will consist of live shows while the Oval Space team are overseeing Fridays with “plenty of unannounced guests, no more than three artists per night, and all-night long sets as standard.” A rotating programme of promoters will take care of Saturday nights.
