Rumour Control….

Post by Shuggie » December 2nd, 2021, 1:32 pm

……has it, that a few bars are going to be closing at the end of this year or early next.

One I can confirm is not a rumour is my own local, San Mames. They will close on 29th December for good. They can’t make enough money to make it work so unless Diego decides to run it again, that’s the end of a good bar.

Bar Isla is another rumour for closing at the end of the year.

Can Los is closing.

Rumoured that Hostel Toni will not have its lease renewed when it runs out. Not sure when that date is but the owner of the building, who owns the hotel in the same building, wants to close it a do something different.

Another consequence of Covid and changing times I think.

I only let him think he's in charge.

Re last post about CalaCorb walkway is I am reliably informed by Luis of Bar Picatapas who lives close by that the Walkway work will resume
In November , which I guess makes sense as to not interfere with the tourist season ...

The piling pontoon is an anchored at Cala Fonduco all ready to go !!
.
Although I understand the island is busy our flight Jet 2 from Stansted ways was not full .
Found Jet 2 to be very organized both ways and just sailed through at both airports , Tui have some serious competition now ! .

Thinking again about Cala Corb , although Cala Fonts is great at all times it does get very busy and noisy to the point your can't have a conversation without shouting 😁😁😁😁.

That's why I love the peace of Cala Corb for a change 👍👍.

I wonder if Luis has his son in line when he retires !??.
