The Club Where Rave Was Born

The Haçienda was one of dance music’s most iconic nightclubs and the place where, many believe, rave was born.

In 1997, the Manchester club known as The Haçienda was shut down due to financial troubles and security problems, eventually being demolished to make room for luxury apartments.

This club is significant because it launched the rise of English rave culture and a large part of rave culture in general, and recently it got amazing documentary Do You Own The Dance Floor, that tells the story of the birthplace of rave music by tracking down those who bought the various bits and pieces of the club, gaining insight into just how important it was to so many people.
