Brixton's Fridge nightclub up for sale (again)

The Fridge nightclub in Brixton is back up for sale again after the firm that bought it out of administration decided to sell.

Kingdom Entertainment Group bought the iconic nightclub, which was at the heart of the early 1980s New Romantic movement, in April.

But the firm has now decided to place it back on the market "in order to concentrate on another business opportunity that has unexpectedly arisen in a separate sector", according to selling agent Christie & Co.

Christie & Co is looking for offers over £300,000 for the leasehold interest of the Fridge, which is available at nil premium.

Founded by Andrew Czezowski and Susan Carrington, the Fridge first opened in 1981 in a small club at 390 Brixton Lane. In 1985, as a result of increased popularity, it moved to its current location: a converted 1913 cinema (the Palladium Picture House) on the Town Hall Parade.

The nightclub, has a capacity for 1,700 people split across two main rooms.

Barry Fitzgerald from Christie & Co's London bars and restaurants team, said: "The unexpected return of the Fridge to the market offers a fantastic opportunity for a high-quality operator to acquire this well-known venue, which has the potential to become the leading late-night venue in south London."
