Bar25 Rises From The Dead...Back in the summer of 2009, a nation wept (well, kinda...) at the eventual close of Berlin’s Bar25. The venues six year reign as a surreal adult playground saw thousands and thousands of electronic music fans travel to Berlin to experience the shack’s never ending and certainly hedonistic parties by the Spree river side.

In true decadent Bar25 style, the venues closing party apparently ran for a mammoth 250 hours and featured acts such as Lee Jones, Tobi Neumann, Dirty Doering, Beaner and of course Danny Faber. Whilst Bar25 itself is no more, its memory lives on through its record label which has continued to successfully release music since its inception in 2006.

Lost but by no means forgotten by most, London event company HB Event productions (of the hugely popular Half Baked parties) are bringing the Bar25 vibe alive once more as they host a one off event - ‘A Bar25 Funfair Of Mayhem’ - on Saturday the 4th of February at an as of yet, undisclosed London location.

Promising their guests a night of circus adventure, surprises and reignited Bar 25 spirit, the line up is an impressive one with Detroit’s Kenny Larkin making a rare London appearance as headliner.

If the Half Baked parties are anything to go by, their up-beat, fun and outrageous way of hosting events certainly mirrors that of Bar25 and will live up to its aforementioned promises!

Joining the legendary Kenny Larkin will be Matthew Styles, a DJ who is familiar with being part of epic venues and club nights; his ‘Dig Your Own Rave Out’ at London’s now closed TBar being another never forgotten time in the scene. Bar25 club kid and resident Danny Faber will join the line up as well as Half Baked resident Robin Ordell.

If you missed out on Bar 25 when it was open or have been missing it since it’s ‘tough to get through’ gates closed in 2009 – we suggest you take the opportunity of at least a snapshot of what it was all about.
