Paul Lanzarotti ( Mad Not Mad ) To Open Up New Club In June?

Just saw this article

http://www.residentadvisor.net/news.aspx?id=16579

quote:
You say you're not a standard promoter exactly. So what's something that you would tell a venue?

Well, we're going to be opening a... I can't tell you what the name of the club is because it's secret, but in June we're going to be opening a new club, and we have been working it for eight months with the venue owners, and the concept was borne out of my original experience with the first Sasha boat cruise, and then playing around with the format... I got into it because a lot of my friends were, I stopped going out in New York about a year-and-a-half, two years ago because I was frustrated with what was out there, and I think the NY club scene is in a bad place. Then my friends were going out and they were coming back and they were complaining, and every bit that they were complaining about what was the same things that I was complaining about, so I decided "You know what, I'm going to give this a go, I'm going to try and change things."

In New York, everything's much closer together [than London], so people have four or five options when they go out, and that changes people's mindset, and I noticed this seven years ago, that the crowds here are much more apathetic—people come, people go. This new club we're developing is a new club which kind of turns things on its head. First of all the production is going to be first-class, the venue owners are spending a fortune on a state-of-the-art Funktion One soundsystem, not just a couple of speakers in the corner, we're going to have six 21-inch subs in a beautiful space. It's a very beautiful space, it's in Manhattan and not in Brooklyn.

We have a lighting company that's coming in who were recommended to us by a couple of people called iDesign and they're going to be doing some fantastic design work. We're not trying to design a very loud and in-your-face club, in fact what we're trying to do is design a club that's very underground and is targeted at a slightly older audience. We're going to have lots of seating available, the best sound that money can buy, the best lighting money can buy, in an underground, 500-capacity club, and it's going to be semi-private, and the idea is to connect the real fans of music to the DJs and give the DJs the best possible platform to be heard.

Do you guys think that last MadNotMat with Sasha at Slate was a test run of his up coming club? Kinda makes sense....

Thats what I'm thinking, looking back at the Sasha at Slate thread it seemed like they were stressing the same ideas for that night ( no dress code, bottle service, etc.. ).

Pure speculation but maybe they're going to buy out Slate? It would make sense to me to just buy it out if they already did the renovations for the Sasha event.

Exactly why I mentioned Slate being a test run....

Since MNM saw that it was a success, they pulled the trigger and invested money into that place. Of course this is all hypothetical....but i wouldnt surprised me if that was the case

lol i said the same thing
i hope the whole "semi-private" thing is sort of like what blk market and other promoters do where its rsvp only, and not held to the decision of some douchebag doorman or forced to buy bottles

It sounds like he's talking about that Beekman Beach Club where Middleton and M.A.N.D.Y. are playing...maybe?

Knowing Paul for a few years, I am confident he wouldn't get involved with anything unless it was something that was definitely worth it. That being said, I wouldn't mind another new venue in NYC, couldn't hurt at all. As a local DJ, a new venue opens up more opportunities for us local DJ's that have no problem playing an opening/closing slot alongside some great headliners.

Best of luck to Paul and the rest of the Mad Not Mad crew.
