East Village’s Most Hated Bar Said to Be Closing Soon

An e-mail from the folks behind Sin Sin’s weekly Soulgasm party claims that the East Village bar that has long been at odds with Community Board types (and that was the scene of a fatal shooting in August) “has decided to close, re-open and go a different route. Like many venues around the city they too have to keep up with the times and cost of operating here.” Soulgasm’s last party after five years at the venue will be on October 27, but an employee at the dance den tells us a time frame for the “renovations” is still being worked out and “nothing has been decided upon yet.” We’ll let you know if we hear more — this has the potential to be the neighborhood NIMBYs’ biggest win since the closing of Le Souk.

ONLY 3 MORE SOULGASM PARTIES AT SIN SIN (& THE 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY)!!

As they say, things change.
After 5 years of welcoming us into their venue and allowing us to party with no dramatics, Sin Sin has decided to close, re-open and go a different route. Like many venues around the city they too have to keep up with the times and cost of operating here.

So, we've decided to celebrate SOULGASM'S 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY, one week early, at our last party AT SIN SIN ON OCTOBER 27th.

We are very grateful for all of our supporters, the dancers and the over 300 guest DJs that have graced us with their music. We are grateful for the venue we had, Sin Sin and all of its staff & security.

We our grateful to our friends at our off-spring party Soulgasm Hawaii (look for Soulgasm in Japan & Amsterdam soon!). We are grateful that there is now a Soulgasm Music Label.

We have not yet decided the fate of Soulgasm NYC, but we are happy to be leaving Sin Sin on a high-note, because we know having a weekly party in this city non-stop for 5 years is something very special.

Please keep supporting House Music, the parties, DJs and artist. Never stop dancing.

Once again we thank you all for 5 wonderful, music filled years.
