Wow, apparently New York’s mainstay mega club Crobar is on its way out, like this weekend! I just got an invite to the grand opening of a new club called Studio Mezmor with Brooklyn’s own Sizzahandz performing. It’s goin down Saturday night at 530 W. 28th St. in Chelsea. Hmm that sounds familiar. Isn’t Crobar at 530 W. 28th St?
It’ll be interesting to see how this all pans out; there have been Crobar/PaulVanDyk posters plastered all over the city since New Years advertising the Friday, Feb 16th party
So if you believe the marketing blitz then Friday’s PVD party is the last hurrah for the legendary Crobar. Does this spell the same end/re-naming for the Miami, Chicago, and Buenos Aires Crobar clubs too?
UPDATE: Filter27 seems to have more concrete info on this:
The new name is a tip of the hat to the building’s original tenant, Colonel Francis Messmore. Under the new ownership, the venue has undergone a re-imagining, with improvements to the sound, video, and lighting. The main room’s architecture remains the same 10,000 square feet, column free dance floor with 35 foot ceilings. The 2nd floor Mezzanine, ground level VIP, and front room have all been re-designed into lush VIP bottle-service areas.
The club’s current music policy and bookings will remain intact (at least for now).
