Space comes to NYC! The Ibiza Migration Continues!

With the flip of an Instagram picture, Space revealed they’d be up and running in Manhattan by Thanksgiving. Unlike Sankeys, Space will opt for a more northern location, a stone’s throw from the citadel of Ibiza-based EDM, Pacha at 637 West 50th Street. There’s little to no information out about this new mega-club and yours truly is desperate to get more info on their opening headliners and any possible new residents. There’s a solid hankering for some additional options between Central Park and Houston Street from the dancing public and this will do nicely. I’m eager to see what this swell of supply will do to the choice your average Gothamite will have on a Friday or Saturday night when it comes to getting their groove on. (via Dancing Astronaut)

Sankeys comes to NYC! The British Are Coming!

It’s a good time to club in NYC. Sankeys, the shuttered venue in Manchester will be in Manhattan by Halloween. After 3 seasons in Ibiza, they’re crossing the pond. The new spot will be opening on 29 West 36th Street, right around Bryant Park & Herald Square, smack in the middle of midtown. There’s going to be some amazing sound and lights that are detailed on the site and press release for the tech-heads. The Halloween debut will feature Reboot, No Regular Play & My Favorite Robot. Slow Hands, the uncomparable DJ Sneak, Tanner Ross & Fur Coat (all the way from Venezuela) will round out the first weekend. The more big names the better. With the departure of District 36, Midtown is lacking a flagship spot and I know Sankeys will be chomping at the bit to show us Gothamites how Manchester does a proper party.
