London venue House Of Vans is set to close its doors for good in December. 

The venue, which is located at The Arches by Waterloo train station, is sponsored by US shoe brand Vans and has welcomed performances from major artists over nearly a decade. 

In a statement on Instagram, House Of Vans said: “After eight years of unforgettable memories, on December 10 House Of Vans London is shutting its doors. 

“The time has come to grow our presence in other cities too, and you will be hearing more from us soon. We have a packed schedule until then, so come join us for one last dance.” 

The venue also boasts a skate park, cinema space, galley, bars and a cafe. 

During the summer, Silk Sonic member, singer and drummer Anderson Paak played a small, free gig at the venue to celebrate and promote his new collection with Vans. Back in 2014, Foo Fighters played a gig at House Of Vans under a different moniker. 

Rock icons Metallica also played at a gig at the venue in 2016, as part of their tour to promote album ‘Hardwired… To Self-Destruct’.

Remaining events at House Of Vans include Clashmouth Drum and Bass Market on November 26, and a community Christmas market on December 3.
