Santos Party House Shut Down



    How to Choose Your Organization for Giving Tuesday
    Santos Party House

    Take thee elsewhere tonight, ghouls and goblins: Santos Party House, the multi-level music hall in Chinatown, has been shut down.

    The closing occurred on Thursday afternoon and has already gone into effect, reports Brooklyn Vegan; the Santos website has no mention of this and still displays active calendars for the next two months, including full information for yesterday’s much-anticipated Ninja Tune anniversary dance extravaganza with Amon Tobin and Kid Koala.

    Santos Party House did not answer or return our phone calls yesterday or today – surely in part because, in our personal experience, no one there wakes up before 7 p.m. The cavernous, 8,000-foot venue opened in 2008 and is co-owned by happy-go-lucky classical metal rocker Andrew W.K. of 2001’s I Get Wet.

    The Ninja Tune party was moved to club BLVD in East Village; no word on whether the popular dance event Re-Open-Ed with Just Blaze, scheduled tonight and most Fridays, will occur. After last week’s abrupt, mid-event closing of Greenpoint room Coco66, which has still not been reversed, doesn’t it feel like a good number of shows are being reshuffled elsewhere? No word if the Santos shuttering is permanent, but a word to the wise: don’t take your Sexy Policeman costume ‘round Andrew WK’s parts anytime soon.
