Brooklyn nightclub Output will close its doors permanently on January 1st, 2019. Their last party will take place on New Year’s Eve with an all-night set by DJ and producer John Digweed.

A confluence of factors contributed to the club’s misfortune,” founders Nicolas Matar, Bo Pittman, and Shawn Schwartz announced on social media. “Rapidly shifting social trends, unfavorable market conditions and weakening financial outlooks coincided with the simultaneous emergence of multiple existential challenges unique to the club’s circumstances.

Output, which launched in 2013, was Brooklyn’s first full-size venue dedicated to house and techno. Over the years has hosted performances from the likes of Seth Troxler, Giorgio Moroder, Eric Prydz, Ben Klock, Chris Liebing, Bonobo, Claude VonStroke, Nicole Moudaber, Maya Jane Coles, and more.

In 2017, the club won Club of the Year at the Electronic Music Awards.

Manhattan house and techno spot Cielo, which shares the same owner, will also follow suit in the new year, ending its 15-year legacy of iconic operation. The notorious club, located in NYC’s Meatpacking District, counts Louie Vega among its resident DJs. Anyway, the two closures seems unrelated.
