Ibiza club crack down to end dawn celebrations
An Ibiza club crack down aims to put an end to sunrise sets.
‘Party Island’ Ibiza’s clubbing capital, San Antonio, is getting an earlier bed time.
The local council is on a mission to ‘improve the image of the resort’ thus clocking in a new curfew of 3am superseding previous closing times by 3 hours.
Previously clubs could stay open until 5am in summer and 6 am in winter, but I guess the council wants to move away from their ‘party island’ reputation…
The open-air terraces of bars are also majorly affected by the new regulations, and will have to close at 11pm instead of their current closing time of 2am.
This is due to a new move whereby the popular West End party zone will be declared as a special area of acoustic protection.
Additionally the vendors, shops and take away stands serving customers through hatches will be forced to close at 11pm, to avoid (intoxicated) revelers (customers) queuing in the road- because everyone drunk eats at 11pm….
The mayor, Josep Tur, has a pure enough intention of wanting to improve the image of the resort, which has apparently been ‘devalued’ by antics in the West End.
Their goal is to expand methods by which to keep their local economy afloat besides ‘noisy tourism.’
The declaration of the Special Acoustic Protection Zone can expect approval later this month, and be endorsed in February.
This is how serious they are: Businesses will have 6 month’s leeway in order to carry out necessary works to soundproof leisure facilities, including sound limiters that “monitor levels using a built-in or external microphone,” as is said by the Daily Mail UK.
Unsurprisingly the move proves unpopular amongst West End traders, who rely on ‘noisy tourism’ to make a living.
