The iconic club which was formerly known as Club 69 will close its doors on Jan 1st 2017, with the final party taking place on NYE.
Club 69 became one of Scotland’s most notorious dancefloors during the 90s when the owners of Rubadub took ownership. Situated beneath an Indian Restaurant – where people often had to wait before gaining entry to the club – it hosted one of the first European performances from Underground Resistance, while also booking pioneering techno DJs from Detroit including Juan Atkins.
Jackmaster and Spencer also spent many of their formative years there while working at Rubadub, later inspiring the formation of Glasgow label Numbers through an encounter with then Stuff records boss, Richard Chater.
No explanation has been given for the club's closure, but a statement was issued via Facebook:
“It's with a heavy heart that we're gutted to announce that The Club, Paisley, will be closing. We thank everybody that came through our doors to party with us; all the promoters who put on nights and all the DJs & live acts who rocked our humble abode. We will continue through 2016 with NYE being our last party. We've (got) many great nights planned to go out with a bang, starting with System Crash this Saturday, which will be our last ever Halloween party. We hope to see you there.”
