Based on the legendary Ibiza nightclub, Pacha's New York City outpost encompasses four stories of electrifying entertainment. Enter the main floor, and find yourself dazzled by an LED-encrusted DJ booth, a massive sparkling disco ball, and capacity for 1,200 humans or automatons programmed to dance. Up the grand staircase is the mezzanine, a VIP area featuring its own full-service bar and sound system. The third floor is known as the Funky Room, where performers shower in booths amid colorful decor. And on the top floor sits Pachita, the club's most exclusive hideaway, a lounge with its own DJ booth and sound-system, and room for a cozy 400.
