Out of jail and back in the house

Could the release of the owners, who've had plenty of time to atone in prison, and the New Year spirit bring about a funky renewal for the mega club?

After a summer hiatus, the legendary and notorious Jerusalem nightclub Haoman 17 re-opened last night (September 28) for its 12th - yes, 12th! -season. It's been a difficult year for the chain, with owners Ruben Lublin and Hillel Farkash in the slammer for tax evasion and a general lull in nightclub hype. But could the release of the owners, who've had plenty of time to atone in prison, and the New Year spirit bring about a funky renewal for the mega club? As it does every summer, the club has undergone some cosmetic changes. The lighting and sound systems have been revamped and updated, and the club will be graced with a new look and feel - homier and less industrial - serving as a "welcome home" for its returning owners. The party on Thursday should be packed with clubbers feeling nostalgic for Haoman's "good old" days, before beloved DJ Sahar Z and his following were whisked away to the newer Tel Aviv branch. The former resident DJ is back to spin as guest DJ at his Jerusalem alma mater. Judgment Day has passed, and the party has begun. Thursday, October 5, 11 p.m. Main room: House Small room: Hip hop and dance Nis 50-90 Info/guest list: (052) 383-3117
