A Mallorca court has overturned San Antonio Council’s ban and ruled that Ibiza Super Club Amnesia can stay open until midday on 9 October for their closing party.
The San Rafael discotheque went to court in the Balearic capital and argued that not to be given the extension would cause serious economic damage to their business, employees and 3rd party contractors. A judge in Palma agreed and Amnesia was given the green light for the extension.
San Antonio Council immediately acknowledged the court order and issued the following statement: “In compliance with the injunction ordered by the Administrative Court No. 2 of Palma, the Town Hall shall suspend the execution of the decree revoking the authorization for the extension of the closing time of the nightclub Amnesia on October 8, 2016”
Although slightly embarrassing for San Antonio Town Hall who have been unable to enforce their own rules this could be viewed as a win/win. The Council hasn’t backed down and Amnesia have got what they want.

Ibiza Superclub Amnesia has asked San Antonio council to lift the suspension on extended opening hours for their closing party this coming Saturday.
The company maintains that the suspension is due to “an error of assessment” last Monday when the club closed at the correct time.
Amnesia explained that “since the club promoter had organized an after party starting at 12pm midday at another venue many people remained in the car park once the club had closed its doors”.
This, according Amnesia, “led to an error of assessment” by local police who filed a complaint.
Amnesia Group argue that even though the party will bring hundreds of people to the island from all over the world they are being penalised for an obvious human error so have officially asked for the reinstatement of a 12pm midday closing time on Sunday 9 October.
