I’m a little behind on providing updates at the moment but some news to come out of this winter is the News that El Divino has now closed down and has changed ownership.
Last year was a really quiet year for El Divino with no major nights providing the pulling power the clubs need week in week out through the summer season. Hed Kandi were the last of the big boys to move on as they took on space.
El Divino has always been seen as one of the big clubs in Ibiza and quite rightly so, with its location on the harbour it looked a stunning venue to have a nightclub, however, looking good doesn’t keep the club running, I personally never went to El Divino, mainly because they never had a night that attracted me there and over the last 11 years that’s a lot of nights I’ve not been interested in. Add this to the high prices and its not a cocktail people want to drink.
The news is however that Pacha are now in control of the site. Its not clear what they are going to do with it, it already has a restaurant in it so they could expand on this and have it as a restaurant, they could operate it as a nightclub again but i don’t think they will do this with Pacha being so close. It has been said however that it will be ready for the 2010 season. I think you can tell from my rambling that i don’t have a clue what’s going to happen but if i do find out i will try and not leave it to become old news before i tell you!
