Party with notorious London gangsters and help them pull off a job

Drum and Bass | Monday 28th October 2019 | Becky

Offering clubbers a slightly surreal experience, The Heist interactive club night debuted on Fri 4th Oct in Southwark London with a headline performance from Playaz co-founder DJ Hype & Slamboree Soundsystem. 

Clubbers had to find a series of hidden chambers habituated by weird and wonderful characters who unfold a story of a daring heist played out in London's dark underworld. A theatrical walk-through experience with London's most notorious gang boss ensued, involving a daring bank vault raid & if unlucky (or outsmarted) a run-in with the justice system. The evening offered ravers more than your average night out and the outfit behind this immersive party experience are preparing to unravel their next chapter in London's ruthless gangland chronicles. 

The Story has it that nestled beside Finsbury Park lies a low profile nightclub known by London’s underworld as a meeting hub for outlaws and misfits. The venue’s owner referred to as the King of Thieves - values discretion above all else. The King promises a safe haven for the unruly, a place where they can scheme without outside interference.

Newcomers courageous enough to enter have to earn the trust of regulars by taking part in a high-stakes plot; If successful they can expect a night of unbridled joys and excess. But be warned, failure may result in an encounter with the Metropolitan Police force or far worse - the wrath of the venue’s owner. For those in the know, the club is within striking distance from the capital’s banking district, and the legendary Fitzroy’s Private Bank. Established in 1920, Fitzroy’s acts as a depository for London’s super-rich. Rumour has it that Fitzroy’s may also be guarding a priceless treasure, the lost Florentine Diamond. During the grand opening, the bank’s founder Mr Fitzroy stated that his vault was ‘impenetrable’ and ‘any fools who even dream of stealing from Fitzroy’s must be either drunk, mad, or both. Such a boastful comment was bound to pique the interest of an unsavoury crowd and we've been told that the characters at King of Thieves club love a challenge as much as they do a party.

The next instalment takes place on the 6th of December at Low Profile Studios with Playaz co-founder DJ Hype at the helm. The venue is only  5 minutes walk from 24 hour Manor House Tube Station with early bird tickets being an absolute "steal" at £10 plus booking fee.
