Der bekannte Amsterdamer Club De School wird seine Pforte schließen. Wie einer der Gründer, Jochem Doornbusch, in einem Statement verlauten ließ, sei die finanzielle Situation des Clubs wegen der Coronakrise unhaltbar. Um die Betreibergesellschaft vor der totalen Pleite zu bewahren, wird der Club geschlossen, Bar, Restaurant und Terrasse bleiben hingegen geöffnet.

De School verfügte über eine 24-Stunden-Lizenz und gehörte bis zum Lockdown zu den wichtigsten Clubs in der niederländischen Metropole, öffnete im Januar 2016 und war der Nachfolger des ebenfalls legendären Trouw.

In den 2020er Top 100 Clubs des DJ Mag landete De School auf Platz 39.

 

Hier das komplette Statement von Jochem Doornbusch:

We, the owners of De School are sad to announce that the club is going to close. These last few weeks we had been working on forming a new team and creating new plans, but now we’ve been overtaken by the financial reality of the situation.

At the end of last week we received the latest monthly reports which were the first that represented the new situation since we were forced to shut the club in March. Unfortunately it is a lot worse than we expected. The bottom line is that the debts are piling up. Not only because of the uncovered staff cost, but also the other ongoing costs. Acting now and making this very difficult decision may prevent the total bankruptcy of our company Post CS (11, TROUW).

Since the club’s closure in March we did everything in our power to keep all the staff employed and paid. We were still ambitious and hopeful about the future. However, the increase of the current COVID-19 numbers and the lack of prospects have forced us to end all the club and office contracts meaning the club will stop existing. The bar, terrace and restaurant will remain open.

With pain in our hearts we had to make this decision and we would like to thank everyone who made this club into what it became.

De School
Jochem
