Stockholm-based listening bar Hosoi closes permanently at current location

The music lounge known for hosting eclectic listening sets from selectors around the world closes permanently at their At Six Hotel location.
Hosoi’s founder, Victor Sanchez, shared this message on Instagram:
“Today, the aftermath of this past year have sadly given me no other alternative than to move out and permanently close Hosoi. Instead 2021 will be the year of new beginnings and all my energy will be geared towards relocating and the reopening of a new Hosoi. At this given moment I’m negotiating with real estate companies that have shown a positive interest to support culture and Hosoi on the quest of finding a new space in Stockholm to call its home.
I’m still optimistic about 2021 and I will do my best to keep you all updated on the progress and on how to help revive Hosoi in a not too distant future… Changes don’t just come overnight, but I hope all of you share an optimistic view for 2021.”
Hosoi often hosted listening parties with many of the best musicians and selectors from around the world including Dip in the Pool, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Young Marco, Jonny Nash, Lovefingers, and Eclair Fifi. Their soundsystem included custom-built KRS speakers from Tokyo, McIntosh amps, Condesa mixer, and high-end turntables from Technics.
We were lucky to spend a few nights there in 2018 and loved the DJ sets and relaxed lounge atmosphere. It reminded us very much of home… This comes as very sad news to us but we’re sure the new iteration of Hosoi will be even better than the first and hope to visit again someday. To new beginnings <3
