Beta Nightclub was founded nearly 11 years ago, but recently, the iconic downtown Denver nightclub has announced that it will be hosting its final dance party on Jan. 5, 2019.

In a post on Instagram, the founders of Beta wrote they’ve had a simple goal to keep “club culture evolving.” They had quite a hand in pushing the EDM culture forward in Denver and simultaneously became a  beacon of what nightclub culture could be in cities all around the world. In fact, founder Brad Roulier is also responsible for helping create Beatport, an electronic dance music-focused online music store that helped revolutionize the way music was enjoyed and sold.

“It was an idea that centered on the dance floor, providing cutting-edge dance music and entertainment, with state-of-the-art production along with an unparalleled vibe. It was an idea that club culture should always be evolving, striving to be its best version of itself,” the post said.

Beta has had an impressive run during their time in Denver. It was voted the number one club in America in 2013 by Rolling Stone, made Billboard magazine’s cut for the 25 greatest clubs of all time and received a host of other accolades for its contributions to the culture. The club has had major success in bringing in some of the largest acts both nationally and internationally in the EDM scene.

Beta’s leadership team has not been available for comment but left some vague clues about their future and the future of the building at 1909 Blake St.

“We can’t predict what the future holds, but we certainly cherish all the incredible memories we were able to share with each and every one of you.”
