UPDATED: Brooklyn’s Output Nightclub to close on January 1
Output organizers confirmed the club’s rumored closure in an Instagram post. Output additionally responded to the speculation in a tweet, wherein nightclub management stated that the club’s final, closing event will be held on New Year’s Eve. The reasons for closure were not driven by their building being sold; see full statement for details.
Brooklyn-based sanctuary of underground sound, Output Nightclub is said to soon shutter, according to news source, Big Flash. The report of Output’s closure follows the rumored sale of the Williamsburg building for $7.4 million. Located at 74 Wythe Avenue, Output will “continue normal operations as per a long term lease that is in place,” but will likely halt all event production at the end of said lease.
The news arrives as yet another unfortunate development in the context of New York City nightlife and music culture. New York has born witness to the decline of seminal venues like Pacha NYC, Webster Hall, and Roseland Ballroom in recent years. The Meatpacking District’s Cielo nightclub will also follow suit, ending its 15-year legacy of iconic operation.
