Opportunities like this don't come up very often. The last remaining piece of the Four Aces club in Dalston is up for sale on eBay, along with memorabilia from the legendary Labrynth club night.

The Four Aces is one of the most important names in the history of London clubbing. As a world famous reggae club it hosted the likes of Desmond Dekker, Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff, while acting as a hub for the area's Caribbean community. Later on the club became known as the home of the legendary Labrynth parties, where 1000s of punters would rave until the early hours every weekend, Friday and Saturday, at one of the most important parties of the era. 

Sadly, like so much of London's cultural history, the Four Aces was demolished to make way for a block of flats in 2007. All that remains is the figure head which watched over the dancefloor from the day it opened until the last dance, now up for sale as part of the package. 

The winning bidder also gets an original 1st edition Labrynth t-shirt from '88, plus a flyer signed by the club's promoter Joe Wieczorek. Once it's gone there'll never be another, and all proceeds will go to SANDS (Stillbirth And Neonatal Death Society). 

Have a watch of this archive footage from the club in 1995.
