"SPACE34 SHUTS ITS DOORS"
Lately, only negative press regarding Space34 has been gracing the pages of our
home town newspapers.
Space34 pioneered the revitalization of Downtown Miami, tripled the area's real
estate value, brought over 5 million dollars in tax revenue and chased away the
homeless and crack dealers from what was once a completely dilapidated area.
We won an award for "Best Night Club" and presented more world class DJs than
any club in the US and not a word was printed. We sell more liquor than any
other club in South Florida but all they can write about is water and ecstasy.
Over 3000 music loving, liquor drinking customers walk through the doors of
Space34 every weekend but the media chooses only to focus on a hand full of
partiers that choose drugs as their recreational vehicle.
Could this really be the only place in town where drugs are used? Who will be
the target of their next "investigation"? What local business will they help
shut down next?
I guess it is true, "nothing sells like negative press." We refuse to be the
topic of any more negative publicity and continue doing business in such a
We would rather shut down our doors than do business where we are not welcomed.
The media will have to find a new scapegoat.
We are tired of being singled out and made an example of simply because we are
the largest and most popular club in the Nation. We will no longer be the
scapegoat for the drug problems plaguing our City, State and society at large.
No longer will Space34 be the target of misdirected and unwanted blame for the
drug problems of our community. In schools, at work, on the streets and even in
government offices, illegal drug use is rampant and abundant. It affects every
part of our society.
The notion that Space34 and this nation's night clubs are the source of drug
abuse in our society is a blanket statement that is nothing short of ludicrous.
Listening to music and dancing is not a crime. Our government is using the
unconstitutional Amber Bill / Rave Act / Crack House Law to try and shut down
night clubs, concerts and public gatherings.
These establishments should not be blamed for the inefficiency of our nation to
control the importation, distribution, sales and use of illegal drugs. Shutting
down night clubs will not stop people from doing drugs.
Space34 will be closing its doors as of Saturday October 11 2003. Join us this
week for our pre closing and the MURK CD Release Party.
There will be an official "Closing Party" next week starring Subliminal Records
Erick Morillo. This will be the first time ever that Erick performs at Space34
and we are very excited and pleased to have him. He will be doing both Main
Room and Terrace sets.
Joining Erick will be residents Oscar G, Roland, Markus Schulz, Tony Tone,
The owner, management and staff of Space34 would like to thank everyone who
supported and believed in us. A club is not a club without clubbers and a dance
floor is just an empty floor without dancers. We would have never made it
without you. Keep on dancing.
