For the past decade, New York City nightlife has been connected with many names, but one in particular stands out just a little bit more than others: Pacha. The first US offshoot of the famed Ibiza flagship club, Pacha NYC erupted onto the dancefloor with a not-so-subtle “drop”. This 2500+ venue nestled in midtown Manhattan occupies the revered and storied Sound Factory space where so many epic battles were fought, both on the decks and outside the red rope.
Stylistically, Pacha NYC runs the gamut, having hosted almost every name in electronic music under the sun throughout the last 10 years. Resident Erick Morillo consistently holds down the fort, and NY underground legends like Danny Tenaglia and Victor Calderone have made copious appearances. Recently, Pacha NYC has branded multiple parties spanning the genre gap from Lose It Fridays (Hosting acts like 3lau, Oliver Heldens and the Chainsmokers), to Pacha Late Night (graced recently by Nicole Moudaber, Oscar G and Green Lantern).
Always giving back, Pacha has made a charitable name for itself amongst the massive NYC community. Leading the charge in outreach, Pacha NYC has hosted events such as Help Heal NY (a red cross benefit post Hurricane Sandy) and more recently, Music Fights AIDs, where bigwig DJs like Afrojack, A-Trak, Fedde Le Grand, Danny Avila and many more spin for NYC and the club donates proceeds to noteworthy causes.
If bottle popping, dancing away in barely-there neon lycra and/or catching an open-to-close experience in NYC sounds appealing, you will fall prey to the siren sound of Pacha. And this isn't just because of the blaring speakers that litter the club's many rooms like confetti, which also happens to be blasted from the main booth nightly.
