Now it's about to pull down the shutters on a decade of decadence – but not before one last spectacular blowout featuring some of the acts who have come to define the Death Disco sound.
The inclusive night has been responsible for some of The Arches' most memorable: they've brought names like Calvin Harris, Erol Alkan, Mylo, Hot Chip and Digitalism to Midland Street.
For this grand finale, Jacques Lu Cont returns to the club that made him reconsider ending his DJ career, alongside Jake Shears, whose band Scissor Sisters embody the glittery, polysexual ethos that has become the club's signature.
New Yorker Sammy Jo, Frenchman Fred Falke and residents Mingo-go, Johnny Whoop and Hushpuppy complete the line-up on what is sure to be an emotionally charged night for many.
l Death Disco: The EnDD with Jacques Lu Cont, tomorrow, The Arches, 10pm-4am, £10.
