Inspired by Andy Warhol’s Factory, owner Mark Gerber created OAF as a hub of music, art, performance and partying. As a live music venue, it has spawned the careers of many home-grown musicians and constantly bills edgy, alternative, local emerging acts. Its prime location in the club strip of Oxford Street, has made it home to a dedicated group of patrons, but it is equally welcoming to newcomers. OAF hosts everything from art exhibitions to fringe performance, Eurovision parties, speech nights, discos and anything else that involves imagination and fun. There’s always something in production at the factory.
