Phonox London

OPENED 677 DAYS AGO

Who will take The Columbo Group on? At the same time as we’d all but given up on finding exciting late night clubbing in London, (and following the sad closure of Shoreditch staple Plastic People), the giants behind XOYO and The Nest have unveiled their new project – Brixton’s Phonox London, a modern clubbing project with many surprises.

In the space that the nightclub Plan B stood, there is now an informal and grown up bar space, open all night, a relaxed seating that – though it turns clubbier later – offsets what’s upstairs – essentially an industrial-scale black room with lights and sound. Peer around for the DJ decks and you’ll barely spot them – this is about the feels, not the big name, big deals and there’s no names in lights here. Just unparalleled visuals and Funktion-One sound.

The thought-out club space feels designed for experienced dance troops. Against overcrowded line ups where music comes second to DJ hype, Phonox London sets will go on all night – a guest DJ plays Fridays, then resident Jasper James on Saturdays. Instead of a centred DJ booth the dance floor takes up all the room. It’s all in ode to club music’s past and dancing is the currency – camera phones are discouraged in a bid to connect Londoners to the music, not to selfie-taking culture.
