The venue, located on Brick Lane in East London, launched in one of London’s original warehouse spaces in late 2019.
Due to the imminent lockdown in March 2020 which forced clubs to shut, the space only had a limited amount of time to host events before having to shut its doors to the public.
The venue has a top of the range Funktion-One sound system and they are planning to collaborate with the likes of Percolate, LWE, and Loaded, who will all be doing takeovers and planning events.
The aesthetic venue, consisting of concrete pillars, bare brick walls, a high-end soundsystem and overhanging lights has described itself as ‘state of the art’.

The venue has said that they are putting an emphasis on the ‘quality over quantity’ of events that they host to ensure the best experience for their attendees.
Luca, General Manager of Werkhaus says “Having worked in nightlife for over 15 years it was a real challenge to see a space we’d worked so hard on have to close for 18 months. However, it gave us time to refine the venue and it’s now better than we originally imagined it. We’re absolutely thrilled to be open once more and deliver great events for like minded people!”
