T Bar's belated last party!!!

Soul Clap will headline the T Bar's closing party, which will take place on Saturday 24th July.

The venue opened in 2003 at Shoreditch's Tea Building, becoming quite the institution with London's electronic music contingent due to its casual vibe, free entry policy and cherry-picked line-ups. Its move to Aldgate in the middle of last year ultimately proved to be its downfall, with the introduction of a cover charge on weekends not being enough to make its continuation viable. However sad its departure from London's clubbing circuit may be, there'll certainly be many good memories from its seven years at the forefront of the city's electronic music scene, and the people behind it are organising one last bash to give it the send-off that it deserves.

The Wolf + Lamb crew have made quite a few appearances at the second T Bar incarnation, so it's only fitting that two of their acts are to play the closing event. Boston's Soul Clap will be in town to showcase their sample-heavy house antics, while recent RA podcaster Nicolas Jaar will offer up his delightfully offbeat take on electronic dance music. Eglo co-founder Floating Points will complete the main room line-up at Scrutton Street Warehouse, with the upstairs room set to host Jonny Rock and T Bar's old programming manager, Derren Smart.
