According to the back page of today's AZ, the nightclub Pacha is set to change locations in Autumn 2005.
Pacha Munich is currently located on Rosenheimerstrasse, next door to the Kultfabrik and Optimolwerk nightlife arenas. With recent increasing competition amongst top Munich nightclubs, the management (Constantin Wahl and Michi Kern) have decided that they need a more central location. Apparently they have found a suitable venue and the contract will be signed any day now. The exact address is still top secret.
Apparently there have been 50 new bars and clubs which have opened in Munich this year already. And in particular there has been a surge in the number of top nightclubs in the city center (eg. 8 Seasons, MaxSuite, Crowns Club).
When it first opened, four years ago, Pacha quickly established itself as a hang out of Munich's high society. The likes of Boris Becker, Oli Kahn, and Sarah Kern would often sip their Caipi's there. In recent years this shine has faded. The new Pacha venue will be only half the size of it's current address with the intention of re-establishing some of its exclusivisity.
Incidently, this coming Saturday (27.Nov.2004) is Pacha Munich's 4th birthday.
Some history: The original Pacha is located in Ibiza where it is the most famous club on the island. It was founded back in 1973 by Ricardo Urgell and his brother Pitri. Since then the two brothers have opened franchises all over Europe. There's now even a Pacha in Buenos Aries, Argentina and this December another will open in Marakech, Morocco.
