The club's future had been in doubt since facing eviction from its barge base on the Seine last month

Paris nightclub Concrete is set to close in just under a month.

The news was announced today with a statement by the club, which hinted at plans for a new space elsewhere sometime in the future. You can read it in full here.

"Concrete is a dream we would have loved to continue building at the Port of the Rapée for a few more years, but the reasons you already know will force us to stop the adventure soon," reads the club's statement.

It continues: "We are not going to hide from you that we are extremely sorry, and that it is very hard for us to write you this message. But we are already looking to the future, to come back stronger, with the same values, and put out experience and know-how in an even more ambitious project and on which we will strive to erase the defects that we have been criticized until today."

Concrete's owners revealed last month that the future of the club was in doubt after they were served an eviction notice by the owners of the barge on which the venue is based. A petition was launched at the time to help secure the future of the club, with the support from Paris' deputy mayor.

The final party will run continuously from July 19-21. Find more information here.
