Fabric nightclub in London.

After a seven-hour-plus hearing, local authorities decided to permanently shut down London's Fabric nightclub.

The iconic U.K. venue had its license revoked last month after the fatal drug overdoses of two 18-year-old clubgoers. The club was open for more than 20 years.

Fans of the club worldwide attempted to save the venue via a petition, which had reached nearly 150,000 signers at press time.
