    Get real. 90% of tourists travel to Sosua for one reason only. If not girls - they have the whole huge Florida to enjoy. With much better quality, sanitation, customer protection and safety. And with practically same prices.
    To me it is very obvious.

    Real? I understand what the DR government wants after following this story for years until it just came to a head. Is that real enough for you? The DR government does not care if another whore monger ever comes into the DR. That is what is real.

    From SosuaOne on Facebook :

    Update on Sosua:
    Classicos, Merengue, Bourbon Street, Kings, Bar Central, Flow - all remain closed Friday night. We ate dinner at Shcnitzel Paradise (chocolate cake is amazing) across the street from the Cigar bar. The street was very quiet and it was actually possible to have a nice conversation. Not a single spandex sighing and the few guys we spotted looked extremely lost - Bourbon Street's space is completely empty, not even a broom. Flow/Pratinum was closed off with a tarp and rumor is that they cleared their building as well. Looks like these closures are going to stick. On the drive home we noticed a mob of at least thirty moto's gathered outside of Ahnvee Luxury Boutique Hotel. It doesn't take a genius to figure out where the has party moved to. - Happy Saturday

    Oh but next week, or next month there will be much suffering and gnashing of teeth, increased crime, ect...Or not.


    I wish I could predict the future, what happened this week was announced long ago. No predictions needed on that.

    We received some more information last night about the closings.

    A resolution was passed back on October 30th 2018 by the City of Sosua - Resolution No. 09-2018. Rough translation : The resolution reclassifies sections of Pedro Clisante into commercial, residential, mixed use and entertainment zones.

    The obvious intent is to move the higher profile entertainment establishments down to the newly zoned “entertainment district” which is on the Playa Chiquita end of Pedro Clisante. The effected businesses were giving one year to relocate. Obviously the one year grace period expired on Oct 30th 2019.

    The forced closings was ordered by the Attorney General's Office in Santo Domingo, in coordination with the Attorney General of the Puerto Plata province and the Municipal Municipality of Sosúa. Obviously the city has the full support of the government to enforce the new ordinance.

    As of 11:00pm last night - The closures were still in effect. City Lights was busy moving furniture and fixtures into the High Caribbean building, they plan on being open tonight. Bourbon Street has moved to the Ahnvee Resort. Pratinum/Flow appears to have removed all of their tables and fixtures from their building. The owner of Kings is appealing the closure of his business and hopes to reopen this weekend.

    However, a source from the City Council of Sosúa confirmed that more than a year and 5 months ago the owners of the bars were notified of the aforementioned resolution and according to the inspectors of the town hall only one of the offenders showed intention to apply to the municipal ordinance .

    However, several employees of the closed bars complained about the outrageous way in which they were evicted from these night businesses even with the presence of several tourists who had a bad time.

    Just shortly after 10:00pm last night, police and military personal began the forced closure of several bars and restaurants along the infamous Pedro Clisante strip downtown Sosua. Employees and management were instructed to clear their establishments of clients and close their doors. After doing so chains and notices were then attached to each of the business entrances.

    The Closed List:

    IMG_7610.jpeg
    City Lights, Chez Montreal, Platinum, Kings, Bourbon Street, Flame, Hotel Bar Central, Merengue and Classicos.

    None of this should be a surprise. This has been brewing for well over a year when Sosua’s mayor outlined her future vision for the city and issued an ordinance change for the downtown district. At that time a written notice was provided to most of these businesses. There have also been several public and private meetings discussing the issue of the downtown night clubs. If you haven’t been following along, the city is attempting to move the late night activates down towards the new entertainment district in Playa Chiquita. Unfortunately its not quite finished. Couple all of this with the new construction and development dollars flowing in and things were bound to change.

    What does this mean for locals and expats? On a selfish note, not having Kings open is going to put a damper on our weekend football viewing, rats! But on the bright side the rest of our favorite bars downtown are still open including the Jolly Roger, Flip Flops and Checkpoint. Plus Matteo is getting ready to open his new spot in the former Brittanica.

    Bourbon Street has officially moved down to Ahnvee Resort (same owner).
    BOURBON STREET HAS OFFICIALLY MOVED DOWN TO AHNVEE RESORT (SAME OWNER).

    What does this mean for the solo male traveler? First off, don’t go canceling your plane tickets. The beach is still here and so are the girls. A short cab/moto ride down the street to High Caribbean (we have a hunch it will be open tonight), Casino Playa Chiquita, or SkyBox Nightclub at Ahnvee and you’ll find what your looking for. Construction on the new entertainment complex was already clipping along fairly rapidly, and it’s safe to assume they will have a few extra hammers pounding away today.

    Remember where we are, it is anyones guess whether or not this is permanent or how long this closure will last…. The fact that the military was involved speaks volumes about how much support this action carried at the national level. Still, it wouldn’t surprise us at all if everyone is back open tonight. We’ll keep updating as this story progresses.

    It's amazing what a few greased palms high enough up will do. All in all, Ahnvee did an amazing job.

    Scientologists have a lot of money. Maybe even enough to build Dream City.

    They finally nailed that "Active Adults" them at Ahnvee.
