Nightlife, add your business listing

Nightlife

The word Nightlife is a term used in entertainment that is accessible and generally more common from the late evening into the early hours of the morning. It may include nightclubs, pubs, bars, parties, cabarets, live music, concerts, theatre, cinemas, shows, and some restaurants. These venues often require a cover charge for admission. Nightlife amusement is often more adult-oriented than daylight entertainment.

Some sociologists have argued that vibrant city nightlife scenes contribute to the development of culture as well as political tourism. However, there is debate as to the degree to which nightlife contributes positively to social capital and the public goods of society. Some nightlife outlets use of dress codes—mostly nightclubs—that specifically targets clothing popularised by a certain music culture.

Regulation

Places with door security (“bouncers”) are also obligated to ensure that the security staff are permitted by the Security Industry Authority. Since the institution of the Licensing Act 2003, bars and pubs have been able to ask for permission to operate until later. For nightclubs, this is now a form of competition as customers can stay in the same pub or bar rather than move on to a club.

The United States

Legislation affecting nightlife was created after the 2006 murders of Miette St in the United States. Jennifer Moore and Guillen, after which American teenagers’ use of counterfeit IDs to get access to nightclubs was brought to attention.
