Bangalore Nightlife Venues Soon To Stay Open Till 1 AM

Posted at July 13th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

It’s finally time for Bangalore to rejoice; their 11:30 PM deadline is being shifted to 1AM, throughout the week. The excise minister SY Meti, has approved this proposal for a one year period, and should be implemented anytime now.

The city police commissioner NS Megharikh, has renewed the order which allows hotels, restaurants, and eateries to operate till 1 AM. Now with the extended deadline for pubs and bars, they’ll be able to enjoy the extra hours too. The final decision rests on the chief minister.

This has been a long struggle for Bangalore, and permissions for small time periods have been allowed before. 2015 saw pubs open till 1 AM between 24th December and 1st January. In March 2014, the deadline was extended to 1AM on Fridays and Saturdays for 2 months on a trial basis. The major reason for early closure is security, and if not the whole week, the pubs and bars should be open at least Thursday through Sunday.

“The police commissioner’s order… states that the operational timings of licensees selling liquor in bar and restaurants, clubs and hotels under various licences would be governed by the Karnataka Excise Act’s licencing conditions. It is further to this clause that the department is proposing a change in operational timings,” an officer explained.
