Vincent, David Joseph 1971


David Vincent is a London-born nightclub owner and promoter. In 2000 he took over and re-opened the Sankeys Soap club with business partner Sacha Lord-Marchionne in Manchester's Ancoats district. In 2006 the club closed and Lord-Marchionne left to create The Warehouse Project. Vincent re-opened Sankeys, this time in partnership with Andrew Spiro who had previously owned the club from 1994-1998 alongside Rupert Campbell.

Vincent intially looked to the club scene in Detriot and Chicago for inspiration, before taking Sankeys in a different direction, more along the lines of the superclubs of the 2000s. He opened Sankeys clubs in a number of UK locations as well as in Ibiza, New York and Tokyo.
