Sankeys IBZ has had two great years on the island. It’s not been an instant explosion of success and constant gossip, but the best nights never are. They secured some big names in the last couple of years and ive not heard anybody say anything bad about their nights. I even heard a rumour of reasonable priced drinks!!
Today, a statement has gone out on their Facebook page that they will be closing the doors on Sankeys MCR (Manchester) on the 6th May with a 12 hour party.
The reason? To concentrate on Ibiza! They have said that to be as successful in Ibiza as they have been in Manchester, they need to move the Manchester team to Ibiza for the summer. I personally think there is a little more to it than that, but they have not ruled out the possibility of reopening in the future.
Sankeys MCR is one of the last great clubs to successfully open every week in the UK, most of the so-called ‘Super Clubs’ stopped doing weekly parties in the UK may years ago.
Ive not caught up with anything else Sankeys are doing this year in Ibiza but i they are shutting the doors on the UK club and the genuine reason is to make the Ibiza night better, then this should be a great season this season for Sankeys IBZ.
