Concrete, the revered Paris nightclub located on the Seine in a three-level barge, is permanently closing its doors at the end of July, DJ Mag reports. The final event happens on the weekend of July 19-21.
Due to a dispute with the company that owns the barge, Concrete was threatened with closure and launched a petition. The petition gained public support from the world of dance music and Paris’ deputy mayor. However, as Concrete notes in their Instagram note, the end has come.
“Concrete is a dream we would have loved to continue building at the Port of the Rapée for a few more years, but the reasons you already know will force us to stop the adventure soon,” the statement reads. “We are not going to hide from you that we are extremely sorry, and that it is very hard for us to write you this message. But we are already looking to the future, to come back stronger, with the same values, and put our experience and know-how in an even more ambitious project and on which we will strive to erase the defects that we have been criticized until today.”
