The Nest is a response to mainstream generic commercial clubbing. We will strive to showcase the very best in new, fresh, cutting edge talent. We are not interested in promoting acts that have ‘made it’; we want to promote the acts that will make it. We will not book overpaid big name DJs, we will not charge our customers exorbitant prices for entry or for drinks and most of all we will never, ever, be boring.

Too hip to dance
Occupying the basement of what used to be Barden’s Boudoir (which in true East End fashion has now morphed into a café cum arts space upstairs), The Nest as a venue is lovely, with cosy alcoves for seating, a dark uninhibited dancefloor, an intimate capacity for just 350 people and a Martin Audio soundsystem - the same system Fabric has, unsurprising given that The Nest was founded by Fabric’s former heads of promotion. There have been moments of hedonistic brilliance, such as Love Fever’s New Year’s Day shindig, and vegan Christian DJ turned advertising darling Moby played recently; future line ups will decide whether The Nest earns music cred or remains a trendy drinking hole. At the moment, it’s just too fashionable to be discerning.
