Makes me wonder what'll happen to the now vacated ex-Shoprite premises under Chester St carpark. Now that is one big, empty cave of a place.

Shows you how retail is in the IOM though. Can’t see any other supermarket taking the space. It made sense when it was built as there was loads of parking available for the supermarket customers. Now between the floors allocated to the great and the good of the Manx public sector which we pay for and the Doctors surgery there isn’t enough parking to meet the demands of another supermarket anyway. You’d build out of town instead. 

And you wonder why the idiots at the DOI want to take out even more parking in the centre of town with the new prom layout so that more idiot cyclists can cycle through the horse shit. No wonder Braddan is booming as a retail park.

A big nightclub would be what is very much needed. Not for me I might add, but there is nothing now like what we used to have with the Cave, Lido etc.

Anything that will suit our youngsters is what it has to become.

 ( We also had Paramount, Jefferson's, Studebaker's Niki Dow, Dow Jones, etc. etc.)

Hasn't that become a Byron Burger now? (although I think that chain is retreating too).

How do you DJ mp3s anyway  - is that just a playlist?

If there was demand for an old fashioned 'night club' there would be one. That's how capitalism works.

'Night clubs' belong to the 70s / 80s in the same way as  dance halls belong to the 30s / 50s.

I had no idea that nightclubs etc. were political. How the F does that work then ?

Methinks you are talking rubbish. A decent night club run properly would clean up on the island. Problem the island has had is the ones we currently have don’t cater for the age group with disposable income. Aiming for the under 30’s is a no winner

I politely suggest you're 30 years behind the curve.

I do miss "grab a granny" at the cave, and Jurassic park at the Castle Mona ;)

I don't think so tbf.

Kids drinking tins of lager at home then going to a "club" and drinking water, don't pay the bills.
