Club Zen reopens

The Zen nightclub is back open for business...The Keate Street nightclub, which has been at the centre of controversy over the past two weeks, threw open its doors to the public last night with its scheduled Glam Night.
The club was reopened as it had satisfied the health requirements for its Special Restaurant licence. It was reported initially that it had failed to obtain a renewed licence, and closed on Thursday.

However, in a press release, the management of Zen announced that the nightclub would open for business as usual. "The media reports that Zen was closed due to the revocation of our licence came as a surprise to us," the release stated. "We would like all to know that should we suffer any damage to our business, we are prepared to take legal action as it was not true that any licence was revoked.

"Zen is the Caribbean's premiere entertainment venue and is considered one of the best clubs in the world. We will continue to maintain our high standards and first-class service."

The renewal application had been before the Licensing Committee at the Port-of-Spain Magistrates Court which granted the licence to Zen pending a health report.

Police said the club failed to produce the health report since March 15th.
Zen was thrown into the spotlight after a scandal erupted over a 15-year-old pastor’s daughter joining US hip hop entertainer Akon in a raunchy dance session on April 12th. Then again on Thursday, when Machel Montano, Kernel Roberts, Benjai and Shall Marshall were linked to a fracas that led to violence outside the club.
