History of Club Karma

This nightclub has been abandoned since May 2014 and is due to be turned into 29 flats. It’s a 1950’s building and the venue was first opened in the late 1990’s to punters. It has been rebranded multiple times under the names of NuAge, Studio 1, Karma, Déjà Vu. There were talks in 2006 to convert the building into flats however, in 2010 the building was taken over by Sonal Gupta and 1 million pound was spent refurbishing it. In 2011 the venue made headlines when residents complained of drunks urinating in the street, couples having sex outside and loud music in the early hours. The venue closed for the last time in May 2014 and then it was set on fire in July 2018 and has since been left to rot.

Exploring Club Karma

Really straight forward explore with no interruptions. There were signs of squatters that had made the venue their home with bedding, bottles of drinks, food and cigarettes. The smell was repulsive and smelt of excretion and urine in the same room. No sign of recent activity although unsure whether the squatters are still there or not. There were candles on the sides which they used as a light source.

The stairs had been burnt badly but still quite stable and the place was flooded with water in most rooms. Not a lot was left in the building. There was a pole which was still intact from pole dancing back in the day. The DJ booth, the bathrooms and cloak room were also distinguishable. The men's bathroom had been trashed and the women's bathroom was still very well intact with little damage. Everything else had been damaged and was empty. It was good to look around although didn't take very long as it was quite a small building. Not the best photo’s as used my phone but wanted to post the explore - Face's have been hidden for privacy reasons.

Enjoy :)

Thank you! First night club and it was an absolute dive but I'm sure it will be the first of many . I definitely think there were two people staying there due to the bed set up but glad they didn't come back while we were there

Its awful isnt it , There's not an awful lot to see inside so you aren't missing out on much
Its sad we have homeless at all, but there is plenty of stuff around Dover, hopefully they will find somewhere better.

Fingers crossed! When you see all the deep level shelters around London you really think they could clear up the asbestos and make better use out of it rather than it all just sitting there!
