NYC is hardly a quiet little burb, so news of a new nightclub isn’t likely to make headlines …unless that nightclub is going to occupy 5 floors and accommodate over two and a half thousand party-goers! That’s is what is coming to Hells Kitchen!
Formally home to Pacha NYC, and Sound Factory, the West Side venue, at 618 W 46th Street between 11th and 12th avenues, will be home to a new 5-floor superclub called FREQ. The venue is said to hold some 2,665 people and, assuming it is granted approval by the state liquor authority, plans to stay open until 4 am. It’s unclear if it will be the kind of place you go for gourmet eats, but according to DNA Info, a provisional food menu was filed with Community Board 4 that includes dishes like “Disco Poutine,” “Freq Burger” and a “Funky Chicken” sandwich.
Space Ibiza NY co-owner, Antonio Piacquadio, is said to be at the helm of the new superclub project that will be filling the landmark Hells Kitchen Space. The location has been home to some of the most recognizable, and infamous, clubs in the city. Sound Factory worked out of the venue in the 90s until being taken over by Pacha in 2005. Pacha NYC had a very healthy run in the location and eventually closed it’s doors in January of last year shortly after celebrating its 10 year anniversary.
Pacha NYC’s former owner Eddie Dean’s recently announced a new six-acre venue on Governors Island, that will open this summer.
