NYC's historic nightlife scene may be hardly recognizable in a matter of years. Following a long list of closures including Pacha NYC and Webster Hall, historic nightclub Cielo is reportedly shutting its doors at the end of the year.

In a post to his Facebook page, DJ Dove A.K.A. Capote Barbarito alleged that the club will permanently close its doors at the end of December to make way for real estate developments. "Great memories there whether it was hanging out dancing or playing some of my best sets DJing," he wrote. "Cielo you'll always have a special place in my heart thank you [sic]."

Cielo opened its doors to the public in 2003. The concept for the nightclub was hatched by Nicolas Matar, a DJ who got the idea for the club from playing Pacha Ibiza's El Cielo, also called The Funky Room. Over the past 15 years his iconic club billed a talent pool diverse enough to include David Guetta, Luciano and Sven Väth.

EDM.com has reached out to Cielo's management for comment but they have not responded at the time of writing.
