"For me," Ricochet mastermind Alan Roth tells Crossfade, "the nightlife business has been an incredible ride.

"What I've been able to see and do and the life it's given me, I'm grateful," he says. "I've been able to buy the houses that I own because of nightlife."

But now he's getting out of the club biz. His latest venture, Ricochet, closed this week. And the space is being sold to the owners of Brickell and Doral's Baru Urbano.

"I left my home with just $500 when I was 18 years old," Roth remembers. "I had nothing. And I believe I've been able to accomplish a lot. And it's because of the nightlife world. Because I didn't go to college. I don't have a law degree.

"It's a good time for me to leave, though," he admits. "And I may still play around with club life. But it was around Christmastime when I made a conscious decision that I didn't want to do this anymore. I just didn't want to be in the nightlife grind."

This isn't shocking actually.


Worst news ever. I sincerely hope the new owners keep the same DJs there Fri/ Sat night and there better not be a cover either! Heaven forbid if they turn it into yet another Brickell/SoBo club... NOOOOOO!
