Pop a cherry (or magnum bottle of Dom P) and pour one out, because Pacha NYC is closing their doors after 10 years of fist-pumpin' debauchery. According to a blog post from the nightclub's official page, Saturday December 12 will mark the start of a series of closing performance at the Ibiza-born, Meatpacking district-located haunt, which first opened their doors in the Big Apple in 2000, and will be headlined by local legend Erick Morillo.
Shortly following will be a month-long celebration featuring the likes of Puff Daddy, Carnage, and Markus Schulz, stretching into January of 2016. Along the way, the club will host an official NYE party, with a 72-hours-long classics set from club veteran Jonathan Peters, organizer of the venue's lauded pajama-party, and a series of closing parties which promise to be a who's who of stars from the past and present. If the building, or any humans, are left standing after that...maybe someone will make a speech?
See below for the official statement from the club, and better start you disco nap now.
"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!).
