The Taboo group said that the Onyx, another popular nightlife spot, would remain open.
Taboo Sandton was arguably one of South Africa’s most vibrant nightclubs, and according to a statement by the company, late owner Chris Coutroulis had a unique vision for the club prior to its opening.

“It is with great sadness that we have to officially announce the imminent closure of Taboo Sandton.
“As Taboo Group South Africa, we would like to extend our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all our staff, partners, suppliers, artists, and the Sandton community who have supported us throughout the years,” Taboo Group said.
“When Chris created Taboo, his vision was that it would be a place where dreams will be made. Through the years, it cemented and left an incredible mark in the club scene, fondly known as ‘the theatre of dreams’,” it added.
Besides the Onyx and Taboo Sandton, Coutroulis owned Paparazzi, The VIP Room and C.
The nightclub mogul passed away last year in hospital.
