Space the club seen by some as a holy place for party enthusiats is to close by the end of the year. It has been bought over by the Palladium Hotel group (supervised by Abel Matutes the real estate tycoon who already owns the Ushuaia) and it is meant to close on October 2nd. Yet it might re-open somewhere else.
In an interview with Ticketmaster, Carl Cox, a monument of the local nightlife himself, implied that the club could reappear within two years. He, who recently told us about the coming end of his residency in Ibiza, declared: “Plans are on the table for it opening at another site but it won’t happen for at least two years and will it be the same? We don’t know. I don’t know whether I will be involved because there are so many variables.”
The DJ will play one last time on October 2nd for the club’s closing but he reassures the fans, if there is another Space it will be nowhere else that on the legendary island.
Yet, Carl Cox has no illusions and he knows that the clubs who shaped Ibiza will not stay forever and that when they close everything will become different. “If you are booking tickets for Ibiza, you want to go to Space, you want to go to DC10, you want to go to Amnesia, it is part of the fabric of the island. But that is all going to go and once that’s gone, it’s gone – and then Ibiza will change.”
