Party Earth 93 Feet East Review

The Scene

In the heart of gritty Brick Lane is 93 Feet East, a live music institution that provides a platform for new and established acts and that has been part of the cutting-edge club scene for the past decade.

In the heart of gritty Brick Lane is 93 Feet East, a live music institution that provides a platform for new and established acts and that has been part of the cutting-edge club scene for the past decade.

Upcoming bands from all over the world and many signed bands like Kaiser Chiefs, The White Stripes, and Radiohead grace the stage on weeknights, while the weekends are given over to top London DJs who hit the decks and get the crowd going.

While a subtler clientele of fans of the bands and locals show up for the weeknight shows, the weekends draw the funkier, eyeliner-wearing Shoreditch set, though both groups are laid back and approachable and clearly put the focus on the music.

The indie style of the patrons fits in with the club’s minimalistic décor of exposed rafters and bare wood floors. Divided into several areas, 93 offers a bit of something for everyone, starting with the Main Hall, which features a large dance floor, a stage, and a projection screen.

A raised DJ booth and wooden benches to sit or dance on occupy most of The Pink Bar, while the more intimate Gallery Bar provides a candlelit haven for those who wish to escape the noise. For drinks and a chat – and even a barbecue on the weekends – the popular patio offers fresh air and a great place to mingle.

Quirky and pretension-free, 93 Feet East is a terrific option for anyone looking for a more alternative vibe.

Banging

One of Brick Lane’s longest running clubs and all round popular hangout, 93 Feet East seems to be doing more than ever for London’s late night lovers. Actually, it doesn’t stay open so late, but in a city that’s hardly known for all nighters it does at least cram as much into its opening hours, seven days a week to leave you sapped anyway. The huge building is more like a complex in fact, with multiple rooms and a cobbled terrace filled with benches. The entrance gives you a bar to lean up against, as well as a sparse selection of seating and its own sound system. Through the corridor you’ll find the club that comes complete with stage and yet another bar, which hosts live performances, DJs and all manners of fun times. It seems to be every student’s favourite space but by no means will older guests feel out of place- if they avoid the indie discos, which are more Bombay Bicycle Club than Shed Seven, although you’ll probably get a bit of The Smiths. Many of the nights are free and if not prices are usually reasonable which is more than can be said for the bar where cans (cans!) will set you back more than the price of a pint. Aside from this though, there’s not a lot to gripe about, it is what it is and an attractive griminess is always the sign of a good club.
Plastic Peoples is amazing
Craig B. Dec 9, 2012
More than anything, this review is for Plastic Peoples, the weekly dubstep/UK funky shows at 93 Feet East. Somehow, I did "field research" for an independent research project at 93 Feet East on Sunday nights back in 2009. It was an incredible time, when dubstep was really starting to get legs under it, and every week the scene seemed to be changing. I haven't been back in years, but I can't imagine that the place has changed terribly much. Throw down your five quid, head down the stairs to the basement, and rock out for hours with complete strangers. You'll make fast friends, you'll drink on the cheap, and you can get home pretty easily on the night buses if you're willing to wait at the nearby bus station.
