Clubs and pubs across Glasgow might be able to stay open till 4am now, following approval for the new licence laws.
The new license for nightclub venues faces a year long test run as plans have been approved by the Glasgow Licensing Board. Nightclub venues produce £2.16 billion pounds a year for Glasgow’s economy.
The change in closing time will largely affect nightclubs which are currently allowed to stay open until 3am. For example, the license permits for night time venues in Glasgow includes techno night club ‘Sub Club’ and ‘King Tut’s Wah Wah’ Hut to just name a few.
A spokesperson for the Glasgow Licensing Board told the Scotsman: ‘ We see the new policy statement as a means to incentivise best practice within Glasgow’s pubs, clubs, restaurants and other licensed premises’.
