West 46th St. was closed for an indoor/outdoor event at Pacha NYC—the House of Rob for the evening. Thousands gathered for the celebration of the late New York City nightlife icon at the iconic venue on Wednesday (September 16) evening, which boasted the biggest lineup of all time.
Pacha NYC was filled to the brim with friends and family of Rob, dance music enthusiasts, veteran partygoers, and the biggest names in dance music. All proceeds from the extravagant House of Rob were donated to his son Rian’s education fund.
The street was closed for a block party style event in front of Pacha NYC “House of Rob,” as thousands gathered for a great cause. The atmosphere inside and outside of the space was unparalleled and the event, which celebrated the life of the admired icon, served as a nightlife renaissance—and one of the biggest events to hit the city in years, if not ever.
Flyers appeared throughout the multi-tiered nightclub which revealed the evening’s set times. The House of Rob celebration boasted DJ sets outdoors from acts like Kaskade—who thanked Rob for always believing in him over the course of his career and for always bringing him back to Pacha NYC—Nicole Moudaber, Jellybean, Exacta & Whimore, Sleepy & Boo, Sik Duo, and more.
On the Pacha main floor, Dave Dresden of Gabriel & Dresden serenaded the crowd with G&D classics along with sets from Dirty South, Erick Morillo, Benny Benassi, Chuckie, Laidback Luke B2B Gina Turner, Deniz Koyu, Otto Knows, Ansolo B2B Low End Specialists, Behrouz, Chriss Vargass B2B Christian Arango, Boris B2B Richie Santana & Peter Bailey, Jonathan Peters, Junior Sanchez, Helena, Hex Hector B2B Jason Ojeda B2B Skribble, Hector Romero, Honey Dijon, Chris Liebing, and more.
Showtek and Eva Shaw made surprise appearances at House of Rob.
On the top floor of Pacha—Pachita—included sets from Jellybean Bentiez, Marcos Carnaval, Manny Freytes, Father Chris, and Good Goose. In the Funky Room, sets from Gina Turner B2B Laidback Luke, Cevin Fisher, Dove, Skribble, Nick AC, and DL, among others, kept the crowd on their toes. The Basement included sets from Jason Jollins, Alex Pearce, Theo, Miss Jennifer, Ace Alvarez, Mario Vazquez, and more.
Some came out of retirement, while others came after work. Everybody in attendance had one thing in common: Their love for nightlife and dance music. Coming together to pay their respects to the visionary nightlife extraordinaire, the sense of unity felt amongst House-of-Rob-goers was unlike ever before.
