"The time has come for us as well": XX XX is officially shutting its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic

There goes another one.

On Tuesday (09/01), XX XX took to social media to announce that it is being forced to shut its doors due to the global coronavirus pandemic. It is the latest venue to close during the ongoing crisis, following Today x Future, Nokal, and Route196.

"The time has come for us as well. After 4+ years, for all the obvious reasons, we are forced to close our doors," the Makati venue writes in a statement. "It has been a great ride filled with lovely memories of the smiles and good times on the dance floor with all of you. During these hard times for nightlife and culture, we hope that sooner rather than later things will return to normal, or perhaps even better. Goodbye for now."

The time has come for us as well. After 4+ years, for all the obvious reasons, we are forced to close our doors. We would like to thank the people behind the scenes—everyone in the back-office, our bartenders, servers, technicians and security. To our brand partners, who supported our vision and helped us make it a reality. To all the promoters, DJs, dancers, musicians, performers, artists, photographers, videographers and pop-ups that took part in our events. It was truly an experience working with you. Last but not least, we’d like to thank those who walked through our doors week in and week out. It has been a great ride filled with lovely memories of the smiles and good times on the dance floor with all of you. During these hard times for nightlife and culture, we hope that sooner rather than later things will return to normal, or perhaps even better. Goodbye for now. #ThankYouForDancingWithUs
