Pacha New York will close in January following a 10-year run, the nightclub said in a statement on its website. The club is scheduled to hold a 72-hour New Year’s Eve party before closing.
After 10 years of successful nights and artist sets that took the club to it’s height, Pacha NYC is closing it’s doors. We can wait to mourn it’s loss though, as here is a heaping helping of events from a Ten year anniversary series in December featuring Markus Schulz, Puff Daddy, and Erick Morillo, a January full of closing celebrations, and 72 hours with Johnathan Peters on New Years eve. If you want a chance to say goodbye properly and with style, here it is.
Pacha invites you to leave fond memories you had at the club on their Facebook Page.
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. It gave legendary promoter Rob Fernandez a room to transform, weekend in and weekend out. It cooled you off with nitrogen and heated you up with shower dancers. It was the only reason you went West of 11th Avenue (unless your car got towed).
This January, Pacha New York – lauded as one of the top nightclubs in the world by DJ Mag magazine, and “Best Superclub” at the Club World Awards for 5 years – is closing its doors for good. But not until after a month of unforgettable, need-to-be-there, best-parties-of-your-life, culminating in a marathon classics set with 46th Street staple, Jonathan Peters.
“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.”
Just how major has Pacha’s run been? The numbers don’t lie:
6 million fans gracing our dance floor for over 12,000 hours. That’s more than 1,500 shows over 500 weeks. We’ve had many marriages, quite a few divorces, and at least 522 babies conceived. Fans have burned close to 10 billion calories over ten years, while our barbacks have ran nearly 10 thousand miles (burning a million calories), carrying over 2 million bottles of alcohol (enough to fill 2 Olympic sized swimming pools!).
