Fake Club says goodbye

After a strong, sweaty and debaucherous couple years of life at the Empire Hotel, Sydney clubbing institution Fake Club has announced it is saying goodbye. In a post on their Facebook page yesterday, Fake confirmed that the night of November 10 will be its final hurrah before closing up shop.
“What an amazing 20 months Fake has had there,” Fake HQ wrote. “We would like to thank our loyal Fake crew who came out to party each and every week.” Over the years, the Kings Cross club has played host to the likes of Justice, Calvin Harris, Nero, Diplo and Simian Mobile Disco, also serving as the venue for last year’s infamous Parklife after-party.
But the Fake crew aren’t done and dusted just yet. As well as carrying out their Boxing Day and Australia Day parties at Ivy, it looks like Fake may be reborn how it began – as a club night. “Right now – we are taking a much needed break from weekly club nights,” the promoters explained. “It’s amazing to think how many amazing acts and parties we have done in such a short period of time. We have already had some offers to house the Fake brand – but have not confirmed anything as yet. We won’t until we find an appropriate space which fits us perfectly.” In the meantime, there’s the giant farewell party on Saturday, November 10 to send off the Sydney scene favourite.
