About the Event

Join us for the inaugural Classics & Cake at our new home and the reveal first part of our new main building, The Brentford Riviera.

Come and see what we've been busy with since we moved out of The Factory last month. This event will take place at the top of the new building, where part of our new storage facilities are and where we have set up an interim showroom until our new permanent showroom is ready and opens later this year on the ground floor.

UPDATE: Bookings for parking on the roof top itself are now full so you will be parking on the indoor floors beneath the roof at the top of the building. Our team will be on hand to get you parked up and show you where to go.

Classics & Cake wouldn't be the same without the presence of our friends at Groove Seekers. They will be there for the duration on the decks and hosting their record fair.

This is very much a SOFT LAUNCH event. We don't yet have toilets in the building (fear not, there will be some next door on the ground floor for you to use for this event) and no lifts to get you up to the top. It's a bit of a walk but there are stairs etc. As such, we have made tickets to this event FREE and also limited numbers more than we will at future events so we can get a feel for the place ourselves and our new systems. Please bear with us on the day when arriving, departing etc. as we will still be finding our feet. Your patience is hugely appreciated!


Please make sure these house rules are adhered to so as not to ruin it for everyone else:

  • There is a very strict 5mph speed limit the entire way up the car park.
  • The drive up to the top takes about 3 minutes. Please be careful of cars and pedestrians coming down when you are coming up.
  • The floors are beautifully smooth concrete and it is oh so tempting to get it sideways or leave some 11s, but do this and I will forcibly remove you from the venue myself permanently and make a real scene. It'll be embarrassing and you'll cry etc. Just don't.
  • The ramps up are moderately steep. We've had super cars without nose lift (458, 355, GT3RS etc.) up here without any dramas or splitter scrape, so long as you take it slow. Static slammed cars will struggle though.
  • There is a 2m height limit throughout the building. Sorry big boys!
  • No revving. The building is an echo chamber and we have some new neighbours to consider and respect.
  • There is an ANPR camera system at the entrance/exit barriers of the car park. It will let you in and we will let you out. You will not need to pay for parking at the pay machines.
  • No leaning or hanging over the edge on the roof and no resting food, drinks etc. on the edge.
  • No touching our vehicles or other peoples's vehicles.
  • We are still very much dog and children friendly, just please keep both under control and clean up after them.

It won't take much to get the place shut down before it's even begun. Anyone who breaks any of these rules will be banned from all Duke venues permanently and called out on social media.

On a lighter note, we are genuinely really excited to share this space with you. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Thank you!
