The Marquee club at 1 Leicester Square

In September 2004, the Marquee club was re-opened back in London's Soho at 1 Leicester Square, directly above the new MTV offices on the former site of the Home club. The club is currently run by Plum Promotions, whom also run Water Rats in Kings Cross and Plan B in Brixton. The Marquee Club hosted the shows of bands such as Magic Numbers, Tom Vek, Do Me Bad Things, New Rhodes, Dirty Vegas, Ed Harcourt, Art Brut, and the Hidden Cameras, Ash, Editors, the Raveonettes, Ordinary Boys, Vincent Vincent & the Villains, Chikinki, Wheatus, Rilo Kiley, Redjetson, Levellers, Out Hud, Mylo, Hot Chip, the Barbs, Talvin Singh, David McCalmont, and Kubb.

An online statement from management reads: “Capacity runs close to 900, with a main area capacity of 550 and a balcony area capacity of 320. The stated ambition is simple - to restore the reputation of the Marquee as the first choice live music venue in the country - not just for the public, but for the bands and industry as well.

In November 2005, Plum Music ended their involvement with the Marquee club, which once more closed it's doors. During early 2006 a rumour started spreading about a new opening of the Marquee club in the spring, somewhere in Soho.
