Located in the East End of London right outside of the Angel tube station, this new restaurant/nightclub is attracting lots of buzz. Wander down a small alley of industrial steel workshops and you will find the non-descript (although the crowd of people will be the clear indication) entrance to Double Club. The project was created by Fondazione Prada with German artist Carsten Holler. Their vision was to create a temporary restaurant, bar, and dance club space that would ‘pop up’ for only 6 months. The interior walls are covered with vibrant works from both Western and Congolese artists, side by side, which makes for a fun and interesting atmopshere.
Double Club is a non-for-profit with all profits from the temporary club going to the City of Joy charity which is dedicated to helping abused women and children in the Congo. Is there any better reason to party?
