Xtreme’s no more


Share post:

JUST over a year after the popular nightclub Club Xtreme assumed new ownership, it has closed its doors due to eviction by CLICO, owners of the Worthing, Christ Church building.
It is understood the business owes substantial sums in rent.
Last Wednesday, the Cottrell family were busy removing from the nightclub their belongings, which they carried away in a container. A notice was subsequently posted on the social website Facebook stating:
“Dear Valued customers & supporters of Club Xtreme, this message is to confirm all that you’ve been hearing over the past couple days. Due to an unfortunate miscalculation, Club Xtreme was forced to be closed down.
“We would like to thank all of Barbados for supporting [us] through the years. It means a lot. Thank you and goodbye, friends.”
President of Clico Holdings, Terrence Thornhill, confirmed that CLICO owned the building, but said he could not speak about a private matter involving the company and its clients.
 Mother and son team Mary and Matthew Cottrell became the new owners of the nightclub in October of 2009, and had undertaken massive refurbishment of the building.
Husband Rob Cottrell, who was on hand last Wednesday assisting in the move, would only say that they asked CLICO?for an additional three days to come up with the rent, but the extention was not granted.
He said his family’s original intention was to use the nightclub as a worship centre for Christians, but he said this did not materialize because of the club’s reputation.
“We held an event for Christians, but only a few people turned up. So we decided to include everyone,” he stated.
