New Ibiza Club Booom, is set to open for its first winter schedule this Friday, November 8th, with Bones and Shaun Reeves on the decks. On Saturday, Javi Bora and JP Chronic, will be providing the musical beats under the stewardship of a new management team. Danny Whittle is currently working on another project called Ibiza Dreams and is not involved with the Booom winter program. In his absence, an in-house team from the Cipriani organisation will put together the winter musical schedule with pre-parties organised for the SushiPoint restaurant in the Marina Botafoch area. Mr Cipriani has stated that he will keep the club open for the winter and it will be a welcome addition to the normally quiet club scene at this time of year. The only other Ibiza club that is opened off season, is close neighbour Pacha, who have decided to open this winter after earlier reports it would not.
With an eviction order hanging over Booom, the future of the premises is uncertain. The legal notices which were published in August, requested that the current tenant of Booom vacate the premises by November 31st next. Its looks almost certain that Mr Cipriani will bring a legal challenge to this order and seek to have it overturned. If Booom is unable to overturn the eviction order, the company with the option to buy the premises, Nayarit Inversonies ltd, will take ownership of the property. Legal sources in Ibiza say cases of a similar nature, usually take about 4-6 months to resolve in the Spanish Court system. The current owner of Booom is reported to be a well known society lady, but it is the arrival of Nayarit Inversonies, that causes most concern for the current tenant.
The blog understands that Nayarit Inversonies, is controlled by external investors not connected to any Ibiza club. It seems they have an option with the current owner to purchase the premises. It had been rumoured that Pacha were involved with the consortium but this has been discounted by respected industry figures in Ibiza, as Pacha may be interested in acquiring the property, if and when it goes on the market. If Mr Cipriani can successfully fight the eviction order, the premises will continue to trade as Booom. If not, Nayarit Inversonies, look determined to take control of the property, with rumours that they may develop it into a new business venture. It now looks as if the courts will have the final say on what happens at the premises currently trading as Booom.
