Heartbreaking News I Output Is Closing Down On January 1st 2019

A rare photo inside the main room at Output showing the beating heart of my second home and family. It’s been an honor to work together as one for the past 5 years.

It’s with a heavy hear that I must inform you of the following and encourage your continued support all the way to the bitter sweet end. Output is closing its doors for good on January 1st 2019 so these next two and a half weeks are the last time we’ll ever be able to enjoy what a special place it is. 


If we’ve ever shared a dance, a laugh, a smile, a hug or even a good cry over these past 6 years at Output then I’d like to invite you out one last time to do it all over again for a very special tribute set that I’ll be playing in order to cherish those memories and make some more. I will start at 10pm sharp and play until ??? following me is my good friend Alan Nieves who’s so nice he’s playing twice.

My goal is to round up all the amazing people I’ve been fortunate enough to meet through music over the years and get everyone together one last time for a night of good laughs and dancing like we’ve done in the past. 

Finally please check out the rest of the events at Output and visit while you can. Go say goodbye to the staff, share a smile with them, hug your favorites and if you know of any job opportunities to help then please reach out. Output isn’t just “another club” it’s foundation was built on all the amazing staff who sacrificed behind the scenes and during all the parties to allow others to enjoy so much. <3

With Love,
Robbie Lumpkin

P.S. Please help spread the news to others who would appreciate it. And I’ll be at Output almost every night until the bitter end so say hi if you stop by.

More info to come but for now please read the official statement from our Facebook Page.

“Dear OUTPUT community at-large,

For our cherished home OUTPUT, it is that inevitable time of night when the last song has faded and the lights are coming up to signal the end of an epic journey… and just like that - poof - the party is over. It is with that same familiar mix of melancholy sentimentality and deep satisfaction that we announce the permanent closure of OUTPUT, as of Jan 1, 2019.

This sudden turn of events may seem shocking to many, but for those of us watching from the inside, we have seen the writing on the wall for some time. A confluence of factors contributed to the club’s misfortune; rapidly shifting social trends, unfavorable market conditions and weakening financial outlooks coincided with the simultaneous emergence of multiple existential challenges unique to the club’s circumstances. The mounting situation led to one unfortunate yet unavoidable conclusion; for OUTPUT to continue as a viable enterprise, the business model and mode of operation would need to change drastically, in ways that would likely betray the mission on which the brand was founded. Facing the prospect of taking great risks on uncertain outcomes just to keep the club open in some diminished capacity, the day-to-day operators who founded the club and have been at the helm throughout, made the painstaking decision to reject compromise and instead close OUTPUT with the club’s hard-earned reputation intact.

Although endings are bittersweet, we are forever grateful for the past six years, a practical eon in the club world. When OUTPUT launched in 2013 it was Brooklyn’s first full-sized licensed venue dedicated to House and Techno. The mission was to establish a proper home for the music-focused underground which had been displaced by Manhattan’s wealth and celebrity-obsessed nightlife, one that would hopefully do justice to the city’s long history of leadership in the global club scene and measure up to the top international destinations of the day. Fast forward to the present and the Brooklyn scene is booming beyond anyone’s wildest expectations. NYC is not only back “on the map,” it is once again one of the most vibrant hotbeds of club culture worldwide. OUTPUT having played a part in that revival is, and will always be, a source of great pride and gratification for everyone involved.

Achievements aside, it is the countless memories of good times had to the tune of great music with friends old and new that we will prize most highly. There are far too many highlight moments to recount, but without our patrons, our DJs and our staff there would be none so we wish to acknowledge our deepest appreciation for all three.

First, to the OUTPUT faithful - you know who you are. Your unbridled enthusiasm and steady support inspired and sustained the club. Thank you for coming time and again, for introducing your friends and for spreading the love of underground music and club culture. It has been a singular privilege to welcome and serve you through the years.

Next, we wish to thank the thousands of DJs and performers, locals and international stars alike who lent their time and talent, breathing boundless energy, creativity and magic into every party. Our respect for their pursuit of their craft knows no limits and we have taken particular pleasure in hosting them while providing a platform for their artistic expression.

And last, praise is due our tireless staff, indeed our family. They have upheld the highest standards of professionalism in every aspect of the operation from the top-level managers to those who do the back breaking work that too often goes unnoticed. Their passion, motivation and kinship formed the heart of the club and we all owe them a heavy debt. Should you make it to the club in it the final weeks, please take a moment to thank them personally.

Fittingly, the club’s storied tenure will conclude with a New Year’s Eve marathon by John Digweed, a DJ whose professionalism and decades-long dedication to electronic dance music and club culture are emblematic of the values on which OUTPUT was proudly founded. In the lead up to that final night we look forward to welcoming the entire OUTPUT community for one last dance as we celebrate the times we’ve shared with some of the top DJs who have been regular fixtures including Seth Troxler, Hot Since 82, DJ Three, Oscar G and Danny Tenaglia.

What comes next we do not know but rest assured the beat will go on and in some capacity or another we will be there to meet you again on a dance floor somewhere soon. Until then, be excellent to each other and party on.

Appreciatively,

Nicolas, Shawn and Bo
OUTPUT Founders and Operators”

Hard & Soul I Danny Tenaglia - Reduced Guest List ($10 Off Cover) *7 Days Left Til Output Closes*

My guest list is generally open until 3:30am. If there’s ever any issue and you can’t sign up on my guest list below here, you can always mention my name as well.

Sadly this is the last reduced guest list available at Output. These past two weeks since we announced Output would be closing we’ve had a huge surge of people showing up to dance one last time. So I highly encourage everyone to plan ahead and arrive by 11pm or sooner to avoid lines due to everyone wanting to come back and delays due to coat checking/ticket processing.

Richie Hawtin I Close Live - $60 Tickets

Click here to buy tickets.

Richie Hawtin challenges the distinction between DJing and live performance with an audio-visual show which takes you closer to his unique way of performing.
The show, CLOSE - Spontaneity & Synchronicity, explores the relationship between human creativity and the innovative technologies that enable the freedom of improvisation. 
Using intimately placed cameras this man versus machine relationship unfolds onscreen in real-time bringing the audience closer than before to Hawtin’s intuitive gestures.

"New York has been important to me since the early 1990s. From the early Storm raves, record shopping at Sonic Groove, and meeting new friends like Joey Beltram and Sven Väth at New Music Seminar, to years of great times at different clubs and venues from Brooklyn to Manhattan. I’m looking forward to presenting CLOSE at Avant Gardner, a show where I feel you get to see me at my best!" - Richie Hawtin
