Working on the hole of Sosúa
In front of the new club ‘City Lights Gentlemen Nightclub’ in the street Pedro Clisante, finally work started again on the big hole of Sosúa. There will be a parking garage built and on top apartments. Previously, in the early 90′s, this place was called bar ‘Plaza Marinero’ and this was the place to be in the nightlife of Sosúa. Here it happened back then. Already at 5 PM it was packed with visitors from all over the world. There was dancing, singing, a lot of girls and drinking. This partying went on every night until the next morning 5 AM. The waitresses (camarera’s) were usually slim girls dancing in short colored skirts.
Every half hour or so, they jumped on top of the bar for a dance demonstration. It was busy! But in 1996 the bar / nightclub burned down, and immediately afterwards many other bars and discotheques were closed by order of the national government. The bar was closed and then a year later rebuilt. There were some shops and a small bar. But things didn’t work out and the whole place was sold again to another investor. This investor had big plans for it. He wanted to build an underground parking garage topped by a restaurant nightclub. Initially, it was an energetic start with the demolition of the building and then digging a very deep hole for the underground parking. But four years ago, suddenly the work stopped. What was going on? There were rumors that there was no more money. But anyway, since a few weeks workmen with heavy equipment started again building the underground parking garage. On top of the garage there will be luxury apartments constructed. With the plan to close part of the main Pedro Clisante for traffic there will of course be a shortage of parking places. So maybe this entrepreneur, with the construction of a parking garage has had a vision?
