Verboten, a once legendary club that has hosted some of the best DJs in the scene such as John Digweed, deadmau5, Maceo Plex and Eric Prydz, has officially closed its doors. It was seized by the State of New York for nonpayment of taxes on March 30th, 2016.
This may come as a shock to some of you, but Verboten has been under public scrutiny for the past few months. It started with accusations of fraud and mismanagement back in January of 2016, but since then, allegations of racism and sexual harassment have surfaced.
An official statement by the venue and club owners has not been issued at this point. It’s safe to say Verboten StageONE is officially StageDONE for now, but we hope to see their doors open again in the future.
