New London club to host house icons including Armand Van Helden, Louie Vega and David Morales

A new house music-oriented club space is opening this June in the heart of London’s bustling
Shoreditch nightlife hub.

With the end of a crippling pandemic in sight on the horizon, it’s time to consider the remaining landscape of nightlife left in its wake. With that in mind, some great news for the capital’s partygoers as a new nightclub is opening in Shoreditch this June.

The venue, previously home to the well-known late-night haunt Aquarium, takes on a brand new look and feel that brings light, love, colour and charisma back to the fore. 

Having already confirmed Armand Van Helden, Tony Humphries, Louie Vega, David Morales and many more of house music’s most revered icons for 2021, Glam aims to put classic house music back on the map in the capital.

A brand new venture for good friends and original Aquarium founders Paul Nelson and Carl McCormick, Glam’s grand opening weekend – 25th/26th June – sees Michael Gray and Moodena on Friday, and a live set from Alison Limerick, plus UK mainstays Jeremy Healy, Brandon Block and Allister Whitehead on Saturday.

Paul and Carl first met in 1992, then launched Aquarium in 1995, a hugely influential venue that ushered in the clubbing revolution that took hold in Shoreditch in the ensuing years. 

Back then, way ahead of their time, the promoters focused on dressing up the venue in luxury fabrics, with exotic lighting and premium clientele who liked to dress up to get down. The club was famously inclusive and welcoming to all and a place where every race, gender and sexuality came together as one. Many modern dance floors now strive for this mix. But it has always come naturally to this pair and will very much define the latest chapter in their ongoing love story with clubland.  

We do not doubt that the very ethos that made Aquarium such a popular venue throughout the decades will also be a genuine and driving force behind the growing success of a new club space the city has been needing.
