College students, socialites and club-goers are breathing deep, with tissues nearby for tears if necessary, as news has been circulating that the popular Pure: Plush nightclub could be closed.
According to a report in the Jamaica STAR, since the closing of the lounge/nightclub’s doors a few weeks ago due to electrical problems, rumours have been circulating as to whether it will, once again, be operational.
Responding to questions from the newspaper a director, who requested anonymity, stated that a decision had not been made to the closure and gentle brushed the rumour, saying they weren’t officially closed.
The director was quoted: “we’ve had to re-wire the club and we’re still doing that now, we’re evaluating our options in terms of re-wiring. As soon as we figure that out, we’ll decide what’s going to happen. But it’s definitely not closed for good, it could be, but we haven’t made that decision final yet.”
What does this means for the future of the club though? The report carried stated, “I think right now we’re evaluating the situation. We still have to get some information back from the electrician and Jamaica Public Service. They want to change some of the wiring, the electrician has to move the meter and all kinds of things, [and] we need to know what that situation is first before we can make that decision.”
Pure: Plush, officially established by Kimani Robinson in February of 2009, with base on Trinidad Terrace in New Kingston has helped re-invented clubbing in Jamaica and is frequent spot for birthdays, Blitz Tuesdays among other events. It is reported that as much as 15 bookings have so far been turn down since its closure.
