Manchester club Sankeys to close

By | Published on Friday 12 April 2013


Manchester club Sankeys has announced that it is to close next month. Seems like a lot of effort to go to in order to stop Justin Bieber having another go at getting in. This is the third time the venue has closed its doors in its nineteen year history, and while David Vincent – its owner since 2000 – has not ruled out a reopening, he will for the time being focus on his Ibiza club, Playa D’en Bossa, which was launched in 2011.

In a statement published via Facebook, Vincent said: “I have decided to close Sankeys in Manchester indefinitely this summer as I focus my attention on our third year in Ibiza. I want our Ibiza project to be the best club in the world, just like what we have achieved previously in Manchester, as I get the feeling this could be our summer. But I need my production and staff from Manchester to come to Ibiza with me to achieve this goal and therefore both clubs cannot be open at the same time. Who knows when we will be back in Manchester, or if we ever will be back, or what comes next in this great city I love”.

The club will go on hiatus on 6 May, bowing out with a twelve hour party featuring Joris Voorn, tINI, Enzo Siragusa, Darius Syrossian, plus Sankeys residents Jozef K and Us & Them.
