London is getting a new 120-capacity venue

The Glove That Fits is a new venue that is opening in Hackney, East London, next month.

The 120-capacity spot is spread across two floors, and is launching on March 9. A bar and café are located upstairs, with an 80-capacity basement kitted out with a d&b audiotechnik soundsystem below.

It’s a new project from the team behind former Hackney Wick spot Shapes.

Club nights, live music, spoken-word events and radio broadcasts feature among the booking policy.

Events locked in so far include a Dimensions Recordings album launch for Kerem Akdag, Netil Radio party with Wes Baggaley and Luca Schiavoni, and Reviveher DJ’s bash.

Operations Manager Dyllan Zain said: "We don’t believe 'bigger is better’. Some of best events we’ve experienced have been the most intimate. There is a unique sense of connectivity between artist, audience and environment.

“At its core, it's a free space where people can hang out and listen to sounds DJs don't normally get to play. It's an artist-led programme which provides Hackney and the surrounding area with a platform for experimentation—in whatever form it takes. The curiously weird and wonderful are welcome here."
