Mammoth has a new nightclub, right where an old one used to be.
The space that was occupied by The Auld Dubliner in the Village will become a new club venue under the management of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, according to Mammoth Mountain CEO Rusty Gregory.
The re-opening of the venue, presumably under a new name, will offer the kind of venue aimed for young singles, as did the old Hyde Lounge.
Last month, the ski area announced it would open a new restaurant, â€śCampo Mammoth,â€ť in the old Hyde Spot.
The new restaurant was a $1 million takeover of a prime Village location, but knocked the nightclub crowd out of the picture.
The new club, on street level at the Village, will alleviate that displacement, Gregory said.
â€śWe're also going to (formally) announce the opening of Auld Dubliner as a replacement for Hyde,â€ť Gregory said, â€śso we'll focus on our young single market.
â€śWe'll be taking a Hyde-like concept and we'll open it up in the space down below, so both those places will be rockin,â€™â€ť he said.
The Auld Dubliner closed last year during the severe economic downturn in Mammoth caused by national and state fluctuations, and by a near-disastrous, snow-starved ski season.
