NEW YORK CITY’S SLAKE NIGHTCLUB CLOSING PERMANENTLY
Slake nightclub, the popular midtown venue, is coming to a permanent close. On new year’s eve, the venue closed out the year 2017, and ended the era of the well known Slake nightclub forever.
NIGHTCLUB ANNOUNCES CLOSING VIA FACEBOOK
Slake took to Facebook to officially announce the news:
“It is with a heavy heart that we announce our doors closed after December 31st 2017. Our home at 251 West 30th Street was purchased by Herald Square Properties in 2016, who are renovating the building and renting to new tenants. We’d like to thank our loyal staff, customers and every artist who’s performed on our stages for an amazing run.
Although it’s sad to say goodbye to our Midtown party factory for now, we are so thankful & happy for the memories that will live on with those who experienced it.
From us to you New York City, thank you.”
WEBSTER HALL’S SISTER CLUB SLAKE SHUTS DOORS FOR GOOD
Slake nightclub – formerly known as The Wall, Rebel and Downtime – was known primarily for playing hip hop and EDM music. In 2016, Herald Square Properties purchased the prestigious Slake nightclub. Since the building was bought, it will now be renovated for new tenants.
Similarly back in August 2017, Slake’s sister club Webster Hall closed for renovations under new ownership. Unlike Webster Hall, the space will no longer operate as a nightclub. Therefore, after many years of successfully hosting spontaneous and versatile events, the venue is exiting the NYC nightlife scene forever.
