The Big Apple branch is calling time on operations after ten years, bowing out with an extended series of closing parties.
The Manhattan club, which is the only Pacha in North America, issued a statement via its website on November 24th. The statement sheds little light on the reasons behind the decision, instead focusing on the various closing parties that will see out the club's ten-year run. Playing in December will be US rapper Fabolous, founding resident Erick Morillo, Dirty South, Markus Schulz, Monoloc and long-running staple Jonathan Peters, who heads up a 72-hour NYE bash. A further run of parties have been planned for January, with the exact date of closure still TBA.
Since it opened in 2005, Pacha NYC has been one of the city's main nightclubs. Under the guidance of former artistic director Rob Fernandez, who died earlier this year, the club hosted the likes of Jeff Mills, Danny Tenaglia, Carl Cox, Adam Beyer and The Martinez Brothers. In more recent years, the club switched its attentions to EDM, playing a role in the genre's nationwide development.
