BCM was closed for the whole of the 2017 season.

The Balearic High Court has dismissed an appeal against the ruling of a Palma court which had itself rejected an appeal for the BCM club in Magalluf to be reopened.

The high court was presented with an appeal from BCM Disco Empire S.A., a company within the Cursach Group. The company was seeking the lifting of the closure order made by Calvia town hall in April 2017. The club's licence was revoked because of irregularities that town hall personnel found in respect of major work undertaken at the club in 2015. There was "significant omission" of data regarding that work, which was to cooling towers and other facilities.

In addition to unauthorised work having been carried out, the town hall stated that some of this work affected the emergency exit at the club and therefore the safety of customers. The high court has taken the view that the revocation of the licence and the closure of the club were "logical" and the consequence of unauthorised work.

The town hall says that the reopening of the club depends entirely on deficiencies which led to the closure being addressed and corrected.

I find it very short sighted that the council of Calvia, still seems to need BCM closed. It was voted the 5th best club in Europe and likely brought to Magaluf much money. It is very short sighted of them to keep it closed. Do they not want the money brought into their area from us in England and many parts of Europe brought to the area? I have spent many night in there during the 11 years I came to Magaluf for my holidays, I never saw any trouble there in all that time. I will not come back to Magaluf until it opens again, my money will be spent instead in other holiday destinations round the world that do have a decent large club like BCM. I would have thought that the council of Calvia Magaluf would have paid money to get the irregularities fixed in order for all the thousands of people who loved to go to BCM and caused no trouble whatsoever to carry on attending this great place.

It was a prime venue attracting many young people to the island. Vindictively keeping it closed is a perfect example of the lack of understanding by a blinkered number of local politicians.

Excuse me for being a little cynical, but the arrest of Cursach, the dismantling of his shady empire and the closure of BCM seems to have conveniently coincided with Calvia and Palma's push to smarten up Magaluf. I doubt we will see it open any time soon.

Surely the obvious answer was to coorect ALL the irregularities that caused the BCM closure. It was ridiculous to apply, with those faults not corrected. It is a great shame , the young people on holiday in Magaluf thoroughly enoyed their night/days at the biggest Disco on the Island. Perhaps the relavent Authorities were not getting enough money from allowing its operation. But BCM ,are foolish to try and open ,when they are still in conflict with their building.
