Rumors of Cain’s plans to close have been swirling around the nightclub since the summer, but it wasn’t until this past week that the West 27th Street hotspot gave its official parting words.
In an article posted on ChiChi212, owner Jamie Mulholland announced that the time has come to sell the venue. He invited fans of the nightclub to come celebrate the end of a five-year era at Cain’s legendary farewell party on Wednesday, March 24th.
Mulholland went on to discuss Cain Leisure Group’s other endeavors, which we can expect to remain bold on the nightlife radar, especially now that summer is rolling in. “We are looking forward to starting up Surf Lodge again on May 15th,” he said. “Goldbar is going strong and Cain at The Cove in Bahamas is doing incredibly well. There are a few more venues in the works and we are eager to get them started this year.”
The former hotbed for nightlife, West 27th Street, has been cooling down for a while, as clubs like Bungalow 8, Marquee, Guest House and BED each witnessed the rise and fall of their glory days. Now with Cain leaving the scene, the block is no longer a Saturday night staple for the savvy clubbers in NYC, but perhaps that will all change sometime down the road.
Join the party at Cain tomorrow night for one last hoorah and help this nightlife gem go out with a bang. DJ Tito will be providing the sounds along with some special guests. Doors open at 11 p.m.
