Default El Casinet

Leading on from the thread re The Square and the undesirables that hang out there , it seems to me that since El Casinet closed and became a pizzeria the problems have got worse. It was a great meeting place for a night cap (or 3) hugely popular with locals but also Brits, and was buzzing every night.

El Casinet was situated next door to The Daina and I think it was residents complaining that eventually led to its downfall, so although it was a great bar it was not in the best place!

Shame :|

I understand El Casinet closed because the guests in the Daina complained of the noise. Therefore, the owners of the Daina group bought El Casinet, promtly closed it and re-opened it as a pizzaria. Obviously wasn't popular and this year its a steak house. They can now control the noise levels but hope they never regain the custom (not bitter really!).

Hi Q

Were you another El Casinet fan then ? Nowhere else, for me,can quite create the atmosphere that place had... lazy balmy evenings with a La Mumba watching the world go by! It really was the 'in place' to be..shame The Daina spoilt the fun >:

Certainly was a fan, always a great atmosphere with a good mix of locals. Everyone who lives here was sorry to see it go and the Daina bore the brunt of the blame (not like we were short of pizzarias!)

It was shortsighted of the hotel owners as people including us would often drink in the Daina as El Casinet was always so packed it was hard to get a table. It must have boosted their sales enormously!

Never drink in the Daina now especially since they made it look like an airport departure lounge..what on earth did they do that for ? >D Hideous!

Q are you a permanent res in PP?

Hi Debz,

Agree with your airport lounge comment!:lol Think it had something to do with the stage they put in to hold their (very loud) singing and dancing spectaculars?!? Coming up to 4 years here now so guess I qualify as permanent res. U?

Not a permanent resident yet but hopefully one day, or at least a good part of the year

We bought an apartment last year in El Pinaret after coming to PP for 16 years. A friend who had worked as a rep in PP as a teenager suggested is to us as an ideal family holiday destination..and the rest is history. My friend also bought last year in a nearby apartment so there is often a large 'gang' of us!

When did you first get hooked?

Hi Debs,

By accident really, I been visiting Mallorca for a few years (various parts) and had friends here as a result. One friend moved to the Port and suggested I visit. I arrived for a 6 month 'break' and that was nearly 4 years ago - I don't know where the times gone! Just can't get enough of the lifestyle

I agree completely.
It is a shame!

And no, it was not sold because of the noise.
Money makes the world going round.

Kind regards
