As i mentioned earlier this week there have been lots of rumour about DC10 opening this Monday June 1st. I have always been sceptical about the club reopening because no matter how much people wanted it to the club knowingly broke the rules. Now DC10 have been told in court that the club will remain closed fo the duration of the ban. The Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Balears re affirmed that the reason the club was closed was because they were operating a nightclub with a café-concierto licence which only aloud a capacity of 65 people.
I do feel very sorry for the owners of DC10 as the club has been operating for 10 years now. The club became a victim of its own success (the amount of people going there every Monday) and the enforcement of licenses up to a few years ago. Up until a few years ago a lot of premises had been aloud to operate outside of their licence without any bother. There was then a change in the people who run Ibiza which resulted in the clamp down on premises breaking the terms of its licence. Over the last few years there have been countless stories of bars being closed down for breaking its licence. Bora Bora was the first big name victim which resulted in DJ Gee upping sticks and leaving for Brazil. Kanya in San antonio got closed for a short while and Ibiza Rocks went through a tough time trying to put live bands on in Bar M
The DC10 saga simply boils down to the fact that if they are let of and aloud to open again then the authorities will have just gone against everything they have been doing for the last 2/3 years and they cant do that. Many people see the situation as DC10 being picked on but if you take a step back DC10 are the place that are continuously and knowingly breaking the law when everybody else has fallen into line, this is probably because they had the most to loose.
