A major chapter in the history of electronic music is about to come to a close, as superclub Pacha New York has announced that it will close its doors beginning in January.
The celebrated offshoot of Pacha Ibiza has acted as a platform by which electronic music artists and promoters could reach an ever-expanding fanbase over the past decade that its doors have been open to the public, but all of that will end after its 10 Year Anniversary party on December 12th, which will be headlined by none other than Erick Morillo, Pacha New York’s founding resident DJ and chairman of the board.
While Pacha New York has not made the exact reasons for its discontinued business operations clear in any official statements, many speculate that it stems from the death of legendary promoter Rob Fernandez earlier in the year, as he played no small role in putting the nightclub on the international map.
In Pacha New York‘s absence, it will be interesting to see whether another superclub will enter the NYC arena – or if already established venues like Webster Hall will simply soak up the influx of business. Time will tell, but for now, let us know if you’ll miss the venue in the comments section below.
