Ten years later, New York City loses a vital piece of dance music history.
Legendary New York venue Pacha New York is officially closing its doors after an incredible decade-long run. The dance club announced the saddening news on their site earlier Tuesday (Nov. 24).
"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," a statement on the site reads. "It gave legendary promoter Rob Fernandez a room to transform, weekend in and weekend out. It cooled you off with nitrogen and heated you up with shower dancers. It was the only reason you went West of 11th Avenue (unless your car got towed)."
