The London venue which was formerly known as The Nest in Hackney is relaunching at UNDR Hackney tomorrow, September 7.

UNDR is a cosy basement space that immerses you deep in the party, with 20 newly installed lasers, a fully upgraded Martin Audio sound system and reprogrammed lighting. The club is the only venue in the area with a 4am license.

UNDR will be dedicated to flying the flag for genuine underground arts and culture in London. Each week the space will offer a varied programme of live music and club nights that celebrate the area’s eclectic creative spirit, and bring together people from all backgrounds to dance as one.

New owner Matt Wells said: “I believe that The Nest was always the best intimate clubbing experience in the capital. We’ve now improved the core elements of that experience, namely the Martin Audio sound and lighting.

These changes were made to further enhance the customer experience and ensure that UNDR can showcase the best up-and-coming raw talent in music alongside some legends. I own and operate my venues from an independent standpoint, and therefore allow my team to have a free-flowing creative edge. I believe this will be illustrated in our bookings and the culture within the venue.”

The club will operate throughout the week as well as weekends, will provide rare opportunities to catch globally renowned artists playing up close and personal shows, and will cover a broad spectrum of genres from a range of vibrant subcultures.

A full programme of events will follow in the coming days.
