The venue is shutting after seven years in operation.
The venue, which features a bar upstairs and a small club space (called Krypta) in the basement, announced the news yesterday via Facebook. Speaking earlier today to Resident Advisor, Golem's booker, Maurice Kattick, confirmed that the owner, Wolf Von Waldenfels, had decided to sell the venue in order to focus on another Hamburg spot, Uebel & Gefährlich, which he also owns.
Since opening in 2011, Golem has been a go-to spot for fans of underground house and techno—recent guests include Pariah, Bookworms and Skee Mask. The club's closing parties will go down across November 24th and 25th, with full details, including lineups, coming next week.
