In the wake of multiple drug-related deaths, Fabric has struggled to stay open over the years, and it was easy to see the effects of the heightened scrutiny that the club is currently operating under. The multi-stage security line includes facial scanners, plastic bowls to empty your belongings into, and full-body pat-down searches. It's not hyperbolic to say that it took longer to get into this club than it takes most people to get through airport security.
It would be a real shame if, even after implementing all of these measures, Fabric were to close, as it's really an impressive venue. In addition to having two separate dance floors with their own DJs and multiple bars and lounge areas, Fabric has some wonderful speakers and mesmerizing laser lights that pulsate throughout the night. Also, the ticket that I purchased covered eight hours of admission, running until 7:00 am, which is a great value. Some drunk person outside the venue shouted "Save Fabric!" while staggering by, and I can get on board with that.
