Sankeys Brooklyn Set To Reopen as OPEN
Well that was quick. Less than a few weeks after being home to Sankeys Brooklyn, the venue that had briefly served as the Manchester institution’s Big Apple outpost has announced it is to reopen with an official Time Warp NYC afterparty this weekend.
Set to be known as OPEN, Antonio Piacquadio, the man whose company were assigned to oversee Sankeys’ latest US adventure has issued a statement ahead of the venues re-opening that both outlines the clubs plans for the future and hits back at what they claim have been “false and misleading statements” made by Sankeys owner David Vincent. Check out the statement below.
“Due to the false and misleading statements by our licensor in their most recent press release and the unsuccessful launch of Sankeys Brooklyn (without our operational or musical input), Ibiza United has decided to sever its ties with the Sankeys organization in the United States.
The venue, located at 177 2nd Avenue in Brooklyn, will now be re-branded as OPEN and will do its soft launch this weekend featuring the official Time Warp afterparty from 6 AM to noon on Saturday morning, immediately following the Friday night show at Time Warp.
Following this weekend, OPEN will operate every Friday and Saturday, focusing mainly on booking and featuring fresh new local talent who play and produce proper, forward-thinking music. Additionally, OPEN will feature a state of the art Martin Audio sound system installed by Anthem SSL along with all the other theatrical and musical aspects you expect from an Ibiza United venue. Stay tuned for more announcements.”
