Fresh Call For Later Nightclub Hours


Share this article


DJs and promoters have met to discuss how to save mid sized nightclubs.

Later opening hours is one of the issues that has topped the agenda at meeting organised by Give Us The Night.

It was set up over a decade ago to lobby for changes to our licensing laws and represent the nightclub industry.

The group says Dublin and the Irish music scene is at a crossroads with mid-sized clubs struggling under the costs of running nights that last just three or four hours.

It comes as the club nights Hangar and District 8 finish up ahead of the demolition of Andrews Lane and the Tivoli Theatres.

GUTN's Sunil Sharpe says entertainment should continue until 4 or 5am but they'd be fine with the last call for drinks to be a few hours earlier.

"We've actually got the earliest closing times in Europe. 3am is pretty much the latest and you have to be out of the club by then and the music stops at 2.30am."
