The Kingsland Road spot is hosting a farewell party on December 19th.
The 100-capacity venue says that "in the last year it has become financially unviable for us to carry on without compromising the integrity of what Power Lunches is known and loved for." They're throwing a goodbye event on Saturday, December 19th. The likes of Beatrice Dillon and Scratcha DVA performed at the Kingsland Road venue in 2015, with most of the programming devoted to live music and up-and-coming talent.
The venue has released a statement that reads: "Hi everyone and thanks for your kind messages. Yes I'm afraid we are closing, in the last year it has become financially unviable for us to carry on without compromising the integrity of what Power Lunches is known and loved for. We all know it it has become increasingly difficult to do good stuff in a city that is so focused on making a profit without much concern for anything else but we've had four great years and we hope everyone will remember us fondly knowing we did our best to support independent bands and promoters in London. There is a chance we will reopen at a new premises in the new year but in the mean time please give DIY Space for London all your support and come and help us go out in style on the 19th. Thanks to everyone who played , promoted, bought drinks, hung out, danced and made Power Lunches Power Lunches."
