Pacha New York has announced that it will be closing its doors in 2016. After a decade of unforgettable nights the club is calling it quits, but not before they go out with a bang.
Known for 24-hour non-stop parties, Pacha is undoubtedly one of the main fixtures on the American club circuit, with its 10 years apparently including 10,000 hours of music, six million clubbers through its doors and two million bottles of alcohol being sold.
It’s celebrating its 10-year anniversary throughout December, followed by a huge New Year’s Eve event and, finally, a series of closing parties will follow in January 2016.
Pacha NYC president, Eddie Dean, issued a statement: “The average nightclub lasts 18 months – we lasted 120. 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.”
This news is particularly sad due to last summer’s sudden passing of Rob Fernandez, who was both the Director of Promotions and Bookings at Pacha NYC, as well as an NYC promoter kingpin.
The anniversary parties will include appearances from Pacha’s founding resident DJ Erick Morillo, as well as Dirty South, Markus Schulz and more. NYE is yet to be announced but promises a 72-hour marathon to enter 2016 in style.
