Shock! Horror! Surprise! Maybe not surprise, but definitely a sudden development: according to their WeChat, Arkham
, a long-time fixture on the club kid circuit, is closing this weekend
. For good! No "we'll be back soon" no " 'renovations' ," no "shifting to a pop-up format," just ... seven years and out, baby! They announce it proudly
. Four years in the cramped confines of a concrete cage on Wulumuqi Lu, then another three in the concrete cage of Found 158
. But what a concrete cage it was! They hosted in the A$AP crew, Chromeo, Will Smith Jr., Lil Yachty, DJ Snake, Thundercat, ZHU, Bohan Phoenix, the Higher Brothers (back when that was cool) — yeah man, that's not a bad line for the epitaph. Some good times were had down there. Go drink it dry on Friday & Saturday.
