The FridgeStill staggering on, wide-eyed and sweating, The Fridge keeps the spirit of the second summer of love alive, with regular hands-in-the-air raves, psychedelic trance and hectic hard dance gay nights. The magnificent former cinema is a truly spectacular space for a party, and though it could certainly use a bit of redecoration, the shabby appearance matches the messy hippies who add colour to the parties there. A recent run in with the authorities regarding underage drinking at an U18s night almost saw the Fridge closed down - although a new partnership with the Alchemea College of Audio Engineering means regular, live concerts are set to return to the popular Brixton venue for the first time in 15 years.
