For years, Ruby Skye has been a staple for artists and touring musicians who showcase their talents for decades. Formerly known as the “Stage Door Theatre”, it has showed some of history’s most iconic films, including the premiere of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo”.
All good things must come to an end and this is, unfortunately, a reality for Ruby Skye. On June 11th, the iconic venue closed its doors, but not before one last performance. Dirty Dutch Label head Chuckie was the final act to ever grace the famous Ruby Skye stage in San Francisco, California this past Saturday night.
Chuckie is not only one of the most influential people in dance music, but he is also the founder and label head of Dirty Dutch Music which led the modern house movement. Chuckie has played around the world, not to mention being the person to bring house music to Aruba. The DJ/producer undoubtedly deserved the closing spot at Ruby Skye, and will be ringing in the end of the iconic nightclub.
Although the closing of Ruby Skye will certainly disappoint dance music lovers and club-goers, the end of one era means the beginning of another. In late 2017, the venue will reopen as August Hall, featuring live bands, comedians, and even a bowling alley.
For all our Bay Area ravers, comment below with YOUR favorite memories from the legendary Ruby Skye.
