Blow Up Metro Club: 2001-2009

Saturday the 17th January 2009 was last night ever of the Metro Club, 19-23 Oxford Street, London W1. Thank you to everybody who celebrated our last night with us and helped us go out with a bang! (more about the venue closure here). A very special and very memorable night (photos to be uploaded soon). Apologies to everyone who queued in the rain and didn't manage to get in!

Tomorrow on Saturday 24th January 2009, Blow Up will start a new Saturday night residency at Bar Rumba, 36 Shaftesbury Avenue. This is an exciting move for the club, signalling another new era with a shift back to the Wag-era concept of Blow Up - a bigger capacity with 2 sound systems once again, lights, visuals - and essentially a return to the larger weekly 'special event' featuring weekly live showcases as part of the club itself. Blow Up DJs Paul Tunkin and Ian Jackson will be also be joined by weekly guests DJs including some familiar names from over the club's history.
