San Francisco’s Temple Nightclub To Close For Good Next Month

San Francisco’s famous Temple Nightclub will close its doors for good on May 25, according to a state filing.

The San Francisco Standard reports that the club’s management cited “financial difficulties” as the main reason for the impending closure in a notice sent to the California Department of Employment Development.

“For the last several months Temple Nightclub has experienced financial difficulties due to economic changes within our industry,” the notice reads in part. “In the past years, we have taken action to adapt to this new market with new processes. Unfortunately, this action has not resulted in increased profitability.”

Temple’s closure will impact 86 employees across departments including maintenance, bar staff, servers and security. The club’s management said they will be “scheduling everyone fairly” and will payout all earnings and accrued benefits to affected workers, according to The Standard.

“Finally, I want to thank you for all that you have done for Temple Nightclub,” reads a note to employees obtained by The Standard. “Your contributions to what we have achieved over the years has been invaluable. I wish you all the very best for your future.”

The 116,000-square-foot dance music hotspot in San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood first opened in 2007, appealing to the city’s growing population of young professionals at the height of the region’s tech industry boom. 

Over the years, Temple has hosted performances from artists such as Alesso, Green Velvet, Valentino Khan and Lil Jon. Flux Pavilion performed at the club this past weekend.

The team behind Temple San Francisco also owns Temple Denver, which has been operational since 2017.
