As one of the world's most recognizable clubbing brands, London's Ministry of Sound, which opened in 1991, was ranked seventh in DJ Mag's Top 100 Nightclub poll of 2013.
Although seen as one of the UK's most famous nightclubs which still pulls some of the biggest crowds in the capital, the club is currently fighting to stay open due to property developers planning to erect tower blocks close to the club and, due to strict sound laws in the UK, the club would have to cut the sound coming from it down to minimum and change it's opening and closing times.
However, after tough campaigning and taking the fight parliament. London Mayor, Boris Johnson, has vowed to look into Ministry Of Sound's complaints and gave hope that there is still life in the club.
As reported by Music Week, Lohan Presencer, Chief Executive of MoS said, "As the Mayor has requested, we will sit down with the developer to work on a mutually agreeable, sustainable solution - one which will deliver housing for London and safeguard the future of our club," he added.
