Love it or hate it, Dyagilev has ruled Moscow's nightlife for its two years of existence, and many hazily-remembered nights of crazy parties, exotic shows, memorable (and not-so-memorable) hookups, and oh yes- those bathrooms will be fondly missed.
Most pundits place the closing party around April, since Dyagilev's lease is up in June- stay tuned for more details!
Update: Dyagilev lovers never fear, Gorobiy/Kozlov/Lazarevich's new venue to replace Dyagilev is rumoured to be located near Rai, and should be opening around September.
Unsubstantiated rumours also suggest that the new venue has already hosted a couple of events, although given the tightness of Moscow construction schedules and purported timing of the opening, I find it a little hard to believe they would keep a finished club under wraps for 6-9 months.
Dyagilev's closing party has been scheduled for April 26, 2008.
