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!).
No one wanted to see the Canadian club The Guvernment shut down either. But nothing lasts forever.
