Eddie Dean and the History of Pacha NYC


Pacha NYC, one of the biggest and most world renowned megaclubs in the USA will be celebrating its 6th Year Anniversary throughout the month of December and they will be kicking off the celebration on Wednesday, November 30th with Tiësto, international Dutch Dj and Producer who has been voted and considered one of the most influential and legendary top ten Dj’s in the world. There will be a total of six parties plus one more for good luck.

Pacha has managed to keep their doors open for six years which in the New York City club scene is a milestone as nightclubs open and close only after a year or two in this constantly changing and competitive industry. Eddie Dean, in just a few short years has spearheaded a series of incredible transformations: He turned a European institution into a New York phenomenon, a battered old venue into a state-of the-art entertainment destination, and a forgotten area of Manhattan into a thriving business district.

More on Eddie Dean:

The University Of Delaware graduate quit a lucrative real estate job to follow his nightlife dreams, and distinguished himself quickly as a savvy businessman with an eye for trends. He opened Flatiron District nightclub Hush in June 1999, and instead of tumbling after year one – as is typical for clubs, the venues profits soared 300%. Dean reinvested in 2001, installing a world-class sound system and changing its name to Discotheque. A-list DJs played there, and the club hosted high-profile events and corporate functions for clients including Goldman Sachs, MTV, and Details magazine.

Because one successful venue wasn’t enough, Dean opened theme club Tiki Room – meant for a more mainstream clientele – that same year. It was an instant hit and media darling, named a “Top 100 Destination” by Travel & Leisure magazine, and awarded three CitySearch.com titles in 2002″ Best Singles Scene,” “Best After Work Bar,” and “Best New Lounge.”

But in 2005, Dean seized the biggest opportunity of his career. He was commissioned by the Urgell family – who started the Pacha legacy in 1967 – to be the first owner/operator to bring the storied Ibiza-based nightlife brand to North America. Pacha New York debuted on December 7, 2005 on the city’s West Side, and quickly became one of the world’s nightlife hubs. Every known DJ – including Carl Cox that first New Year’s, Danny Tenaglia, and co-owner Erick Morillo – has played in Pacha’s supersized DJ booth; and celebs from Diddy to Naomi Campbell to Nelly Furtado have graced its V.I.P mezzanine.

The awards keep pouring in: Pacha took home three Club World Awards in 2007 (Best Superclub, Best New Venue, and Best Sound System), and retained its Best Superclub crown in 2008. The club is featured regularly in People, US Weekly, The New York Times, The New York Daily News and The New York Post. Forbes named Pacha a ‘Sizzling Club Of The Moment’ and Maxim anointed it as the ‘Hottest Megaclub in America.’

Now, Dean continues to oversee the daily operations of Pacha New York, and is planning to bring the franchise to other major US cities.

More on Pacha NYC:

Flanked by the scenic Hudson River to the West, and New York’s thriving Hell’s Kitchen district to the East, the 9 000 m² (30,000 sq ft) venue is split into four levels, each with its own character and customized décor, and each accessible and operable individually.

The powerful sound of an Infinite One speaker system fills the entire space; while intelligent, LED and conventional lighting brings each room to vibrant life. Pacha also boasts a fully integrated video system with movable screens and projectors.

Event design, production and staffing, specialty linens, floral services and in-house catering are available.


Main room Pacha’s beating, booming heart Is the main room. A proper dance floor space in the New York club tradition, the wide-open room is filled with sound and light and incorporates a grand staircase, a full bar, a LED-covered DJ booth and a big, beautiful disco ball.

Mezzanine The Mezzanine boasts the club’s most coveted tables and a true VIP-eye-view of the main floor action. Encircles the entire danceflloor and the DJ booth, it is the chosen spot for Pacha’s visiting celebrities.

Funky Room Named after Pacha Ibiza’s legendary pre-club lounge Space, Pacha New York’s version has got a lot more funk. Here you’ll find the club’s infamous shower booths, where beautiful bikinied girls get stooped in sprinkling water and colored LED light. There is also the popular lime room, filled with vibrant tiered cushions; the mirror lounge, announced by a vaulting wood structure; and a full bar featuring pieces hand-created by Spanish artisans.

The entire space overlooks the main room and can either remain wide open or be sound-sealed.
