South Beach's Mansion Nightclub Closed "For Forseeable Future"

Categories: News, Nightlife

UPDATE Mansion and Deadmau5 have just announced a two-night reopening party for January 20 and 21.

Log onto mansionmiami.com and the nightlub's site has been scrubbed clean, except for a shocking three-word statement in big, bold red letters: "MANSION IS CLOSED."

That same mysterious message also went out over Mansion's official Twitter feed and Facebook account earlier today, causing SoBe clubbers to express shock ("What?!?!"), anger ("WTF? So pissed"), sadness ("Mansion will be missed!"), indifference ("Lol oh well"), and, uh, happiness ("Finally!!! That club was garbage") over the sudden news.

Meanwhile, Crossfade contacted The Opium Group for comment. "Mansion will be closed for the forseeable future," senior vice president of communications Vanessa Menkes tells us. "We will be releasing an official announcement next week."

But anyone with an attention span longer than a single status update should be able to see that Mansion's closure obviously isn't permanent.

Last night, Mansion tweeted, "HIRING for all positions @mansion_miami | Be part of our #GrandReopening & work w/ the best in #Miami" while also posting the Mansion Nightclub JOB FAIR to Facebook, seeking eager applicants who are "outgoing, passionate about service, flexible to learn 'our way,' and enthusiastic."

So ... Looks like this seven-year-old bitch is just gettin' a facelift.

Obviously they are just doing that for PR purposes. They're already open at this time.

Space gets "forced to close" every few years..

Didn't Space pull this same publicity stunt a couple years ago? Birds of a feather...

I'm glad this place is finnnaly closed . My experience at Mansions was not the best . A few year ago , I spend 1,500 hundred dollars one night VIP treatment . Once I payed the bill , the staff was very rude . And specially the bounsers , my brother got sick , and I was in my way out carrying him , before I got to the door , one of them said to me get this idiot out of here , and wanted to fight my brother for no reason . I told him is this how u compensate your customers after blowing 1,500 . He started bad mouthing me and called others bounsers to take actions against us for unknown reason , as we were walking out. I recall a few years later , where some individuals filed a lawsuit against the club , because bounsers allegedly over used force against them sending one of the to hospital in critical condition. This individual stated among witnesses that bounsers initiated the assault and the victims in this case were not doing anything out of the ordinary. There are many other incidents at this club , unjustifiable

My company made. Delivery of sound equipment from California. They are definitely remodeling. The driver told me the place is under remodeling. And yes I agree they will open up again soon (WMC is around the corner) and charge $100 to get in.

They'll open in about 2 months where all they added was more douchbaggery to the club & they will charge $100 per ticket. It will be swarming with idiots.

Actually, I think its brilliant, this probably has more people talking about mansion then a "remodeling, reopening soon" message would.
