COUNTED OUT: Revellers stand outside Abraxa nightclub in Palma.
HUNDREDS of revellers were forced out of two top Palma night spots so police could count how many were in the venues. Police suspected that Bar Cuba and Abraxa had more customers than their official capacity allowed, and they were proved right.
At Bar Cuba they counted 319 revellers, when capacity is 153. As a result, the bar was ordered to close at about 2.30am. In Abraxa nightclub, which was hosting a university party, more than 1,300 punters were counted on the Paseo Maritimo.
Capacity at the celebrity haunt is 850. It too had to close for the night. Both venues face fines of up to €300,000.
