Plan B in Brixton has been closed down ahead of a relaunch by The Columbo Croup, which has taken over the club venue. The closure happened earlier this week, before news of the buy out was broken by Brixton Buzz yesterday.

The Columbo Group operates a number of music venues and pubs in London, including XOYO, The Nest and The Old Queens Head. Speaking to Resident Advisor, the company’s Andy Peyton said: “We have very specific plans for the venue. It’ll reopen in September under a different name, with a different layout”.

“All of the musical programming will be done ourselves”, he added. “This isn’t another story about London’s nightlife taking a hit, about another club losing its license. We’ve had long-standing plans for the venue. We’re really excited about it. We think it’ll be a great addition to London’s club scene”.

To Mixmag, he added: “We really want that space and we think we can make it a great nightclub… It’s going to be unrecognisable”.

A proper announcement on plans for the club is expected in the next two weeks.
