History

When the building for the Electric Brixton was first built in 1912, it was designed to be an old cinema, with its beautiful, neo-classical design. The building experienced several name changes, called the Palladium, the Regal (1956-1963) and then it was also a roller-disco called ACE (1963-1977), until it became the famous Fridge Nightclub in 1984, which was founded by Andrew Czezowski and Susan Carrington.

Having received a £5,000 investment from the Clash’s Joe Strummer, the venue was the centre of the rave, punk and New Romantic Rave Scenes. The venue was famous for hosting one of the biggest gay club nights, Love Muscle, from September 1992. The Raw and the Clash also played at the venue in the mid-80s as well as legendary performances from the Pet Shop Boys and Eurythmics during the 80s. The venue was known for being one of the first venues to have a chill-out lounge and video screens, and the old fridges stuck on the walls. After a drug raid in 1998, the club was temporarily closed, but opened again shortly afterwards. However, the Fridge never fully recovered , and it officially closed in 2004. In 2011, the venue underwent an extensive refurbishment and has restored its neoclassical design. The Electric Brixton now welcomes a wide range of live entertainment and has become an iconic venue in Brixton.
