As one of the oldest and (once) most popular clubs in the city, the Guvernment and Kool Haus have collectively hosted numerous famous and large-scale acts throughout the years, including: The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Coldplay and DJ acts like Tiesto and David Guetta.
Opened in 1996, the 22,000 square-foot megaclub was once the title holder of number one nightclub in the world, voted by NightGuide Magazine.
Over the years they've thrown some of the city's largest parties and have become known as a staple for electric and high-octane nightlife activity.
No official cause or reason has been given for the closure, but INK Entertainment’s CEO Charles Khabouth has stated there will be a series of special events to help the historic club close in style.
