Ibiza Clubs Reopen
The High Court Of Justice Of The Balearic Islands (TSJB) approved the opening of the nightlife industry as of October 8, 2021. Restrictions include Covid-19 passports for entry, Periódico De Ibiza reports, a 5 AM closing time, mandatory masks on the dance floor, and a maximum capacity of 75 percent.
Finally, some good news since most venues shuttered in the summer of 2019. Venues announcing openings are Amnesia and DC-10, while Pacha has yet to decide. Amnesia planned its closing party for October 23, which sold out. The lineup includes Adam Beyer, Jamie Jones, Deborah de Luca, as well as many others.
Pacha has yet to announce a closing party, according to its website. Periódico De Ibiza reported that Hï, Ushuaïa, and Privilege ruled out their closing parties. However, last week, José Luis Benítez, head of the Leisure Association Of Ibiza (AOI), said on local TV that it costs a super club up to €100,000 to open. The immense cost and staff shortage make it nearly inconceivable to open on short notice and for such a short time. Dawn Hindle, creative director for ‘Pikes Ibiza’ and ‘Ibiza Rocks’, told Resident Advisor last month,
It’s really hard to find staff. Especially kitchen service, staff waiters, everything. So to actually be able to even find staff to open a venue in October for a month, I think it’s impossible.
