Pacha New York’s tenth anniversary will be bittersweet. The nightlife staple has announced that it is closing its doors for good come January 2016.

“The average nightclub lasts 18 months–we lasted 120,” said Pacha New York’s president, Eddie Dean, on the official website blog. “It’s been a wild ride that none of us will ever forget.”

Before they shutter, the team is celebrating the decade-long tenure the best way they know how: by partying. On December 12, Pacha will bring out Erick Morillo, its founding resident DJ, for the official tenth anniversary party. Other artists booked for the month-long swan song include Puff Daddy, Carnage, Dirty South, and Markus Schulz, and will end out with a 72-hour New Year’s Eve music marathon featuring nightlife staple Jonathan Peters. This year also saw the club host the “House of Rob” tribute for New York nightlife don Rob Fernandez, who died in July. Many of the DJs who Fernandez believed in as Pacha’s music director played on the night, including Kaskade, Kenny Dope, Chris Liebing, Erick Morillo, and Laidback Luke.

Says Dean, “Our final parties will celebrate the different artists, styles, and scenes that have made Pacha great.” Tickets for Pacha NYC’s tenth anniversary party with Erick Morillo are available here.
