San Francisco's downtown club scene just got a little emptier: After 14 years of hosting hip-hop, dancehall, reggae, and house music -- and even some live bands -- Club Six, at 60 Sixth St., has just announced its immediate closure.
Via Eater SF, we hear that owner Angel Cruz sent out a note to the club's email list announcing the big end. A message went up on Facebook an hour ago:
CLUB SIX 1998-2012
Thank You Bay Area for allowing Club Six into your night time Family over the years. Effective immediately Club Six is closed. Thank You to all the Patrons, Employees, DJs, Performers, Promoters, Artists, Dancers and Clients. As I look back, I'm happy Club Six served as an alternative venue. It was ahead of the music curve regardless of genre. When making this decision, I had the opportunity to go back and look at our history. I was totally blown away. It was Amazing to see how many great DJs, Performers, artists and parties we booked. When I get a chance, I'll post all the old flyers (even the ones I've got to scan) and pictures, on our Facebook page and encourage you to do the same.

Club Six actually spanned two venues: The original main room with dancefloor, and another space next door called the Dark Room. No word yet on what precipitated the closure, but we'll update this post with any new info.
