Pangaea and Gryphon Nightclubs Shut Doors for Good

After almost a decade of throwing some of the wildest parties in Hollywood, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's Pangaea and Gryphon nightclubs have officially shut their doors.

Both clubs have welcomed some of the most talented names in dance music, including John Digweed, Paul Oakenfold, and other uhntz-uhntz legends to the stage. But they're keeping quiet on the matter.

"I am sorry but I really can't comment on this. Thanks," wrote Eden Bauer, a spokesperson for both clubs, in an email.

Another employee at the Hard Rock, however, has confirmed the closure. The only bit of official information that has been released is a status update on Pangaea and Gryphon's Facebook pages dated June 19.

"It's with a heavy heart that the Pangaea and Gryphon Family must officially announce that we have closed our doors.

"Thank you for embracing our nightlife venues and allowing us to be part of your lives. We feel blessed to have shared so many wonderful memories with you throughout the years. A 10 year run is an extraordinary achievement and we owe it all to you. Farewell till next time."

We will keep you updated on the situation over at Hard Rock.
