Live firm DHP Family has announced that central London venue Borderline will re-open on 16 Mar following an extensive refurbishment. DHP acquired Borderline along with North London venue The Garage last year from Live Nation, which had taken control of the two spaces via its purchase of MAMA & Company in 2015.

The new owner says that its revamp of the Borderline building includes a “significant reconfiguration of the venue layout” that will create “a flowing space that provides the best possible experience for both performer and audience”. A new sound and lights system has also been installed, all of which, DHP hopes, will “breathe new life back into what has been described as one of the last surviving landmark live music venues in the heart of London’s Soho district”. Club nights as well as gigs will be part of the new Borderline programme.

The firm’s MD George Akins says: “As well as complete design overhaul, we plan to introduce our award winning model of venue management to bring the Borderline up to the company’s premium offer in terms of design, service and product as well as programming and entertainment. It has an amazing music heritage and we want to take that legacy forward to re-establish the Borderline as the leading live music venue in central London for future generations”.
