Jimmy’z under construction: employees and dance floor fans concerned

The famous Sporting  nightclub will be completely renovated and will  be reopened from April to October only.

It was recently announced that Jimmy’z is closing for renovation. For more than forty years this institution has shaped the reputation of Monegasque nights. But the party will only be on fine-weather days, at least according to Sporting d’été with the Société des Bains de Mer. Indeed, without any advertising, SBM has started extensive renovation work that will lead to the discotheque reopening only from July to September 2017 and then from May 2018. Beginning in 2019, the plan is to open the establishment from April to October and not all year round as it previously was.

SBM has explained its actions through the following written message: “Jimmy’z, (…) since 1974, has had only minor renovations which are now proving insufficient with regard to competition from international and local establishments being offered to an increasingly demanding clientele. In addition to the response of this work in terms of supply, these renovations are also indispensable in terms of meeting technical and structural standards (for example, securing the sunroof).”

The SBM is looking towards the future, and it is to be hoped that, from now until the end of the renovations, the night owls will not set their sights on other party locales. In any case, hopefully Jimmy’z improvements and renovations will eventually be appreciated despite its closing.
