Will the Ministry of Sound Close?

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

The nightclub scene in London is already suffering, with many popular DJ’s and performers opting to hit other major European cities instead of what is becoming a sleepy destination. Now, the Ministry of Sound faces closure as the Allies & Morrison development company considers building a development in the area.

So what’s the problem? If the residential development moves in and just one resident makes a noise complaint the club could be shut down.

In the developer’s defense, they have agreed to pay more than 400,000 pounds towards soundproofing in the club. The club rejected the deal because they don’t want to close down to do the work.

Beggar’s can’t be choosers…
