In a surprise move that shocked the music world, Pacha New York has announced it will close it's doors for the last time in January.
“The average nightclub lasts 18 months – we lasted 120,” says Pacha New York’s president, Eddie Dean. “It’s been a wild ride that none of us will ever forget. Our final parties will celebrate the different artists, styles, and scenes that have made Pacha great.”
Those who have spent time in the nightclub know how special the venue was to the dance music community. It was the home for the biggest names in the industry to showcase their talent, and it played a crucial role in establishing the dance music boom in the United States. It stood out as a place where patrons knew they were getting quality sound and a unique atmosphere. Now it's 10 year run has come to a close. This truly is the end of an era.
"The most earth-shaking decade in the history of dance music took place on the Pacha dance floor. For 10 years, it was the home of the New York-style 24-plus-hour marathon; where EDM tested its chops and earned its stripes; where stars were born and fans were converted. This January, Pacha New York is closing its doors for good.
"Join Erick Morillo for one last time on the Pacha NYC dance floor as we celebrate a Decade of Dance and our final Anniversary Party on Saturday, December 12."
