Ibiza, the epicenter of club culture, is the next domino to fall. Officials have announced plans to close with hopes of slowly reopening in August to comply with the social distancing regulations. According to a report out of the region, a closure of this magnitude will have lasting effects on the economy of the nightlife capital.
Super-clubs like Odyssey, Ushuaïa, and Hï, among other venues, will not be open for business this summer until further notice, leaving over 3,000 workers unemployed. Minister Iago Negueruela has said he hopes to see tourism opening back up around August, projecting to return to 25% of what it was that time last year.
