The Fridge is a nightclub in the Brixton area of South London, founded by Andy Czezowski, who had run the near-legendary Roxy during punk music's heyday in 1977. It was originally started in 1981, in a small club at 390 Brixton Lane, and claims to have been the first British club to have such innovations as video screens and a chill out lounge. The Fridge was undeniably at the heart of the early 80s New Romantic movement, and booked such acts as Eurythmics and the Pet Shop Boys before they were well known.
In 1985, as a result of increased popularity, the club moved to its current location; a converted 1913 cinema. Since then it has hosted a variety of club nights, mostly dance music, trance and more recently mainly hard dance.
