You Don’t Have to Go Home, But You Can’t Dance Here: Night Club ‘Pacha New York’ is Closing After a Decade of Dance
Perhaps New York City’s most well-known night club is closing this coming January, after a decade of decadence.
Pacha New York, at 618 West 46th Street, is the only North American branch of the world renowned night club, featuring legendary locations in Ibiza, Stiges, Germany, Brazil, Russia, Portugal and dance music taste making cities in Spain like Bilbao, Madrid, and Valencia.
But it’s not going out without a bang.
There will be a month of parties this December celebrating Pacha New York‘s Ten Year Anniversary before a wild New Years Eve run, followed by a series of closing parties in January sure to tear the roof off.
Pacha New York has gained international acclaim over the years, including being named “Best Superclub” at the Club World Awards for five years running, and is considered one of the top night clubs in the world by DJ Mag.
The closing festivities will start with the Tenth Anniversary Party, featuring Pacha New York‘s founding resident DJ, Erick Morillo.
Throughout the month there will be performances by Carnage, P. Diddy, Dirty South, and Markus Schulz. The three-day New Years Eve celebration will be headlined by “46th Street veteran” Jonathan Peters.
Pacha New York President Eddie Dean said in a recent statement that, “The average night club lasts 18 months, we lasted 120.”
pachanyc The most earth-shaking decade in the history of dance music took place on the Pacha dance floor. 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. This January, Pacha New York is closing its doors for good. Join @ErickMorillo for one last time on the Pacha NYC dance floor as we celebrate a Decade of Dance and our final Anniversary Party on Saturday, December 12.

Clearly the club’s ubiquity with NYC dance culture is indeed understated, as according to the club’s statement, 6 million fans have spent over 12,000 hours shaking it on their dance floors at more than 1,500 shows across 500 weeks.
Be sure to party at Pacha if you haven’t already. If you have, now’s the time to do it one last time.
