The text provides for the sale of alcoholic beverages and the opening hours of the establishments.
Clubs are expected to operate between 6pm and 2am, closing bars from 1.30am.
From 11pm they should also have dedicated staff to watch over visitors, ensuring “tranquility and safety” and “putting an end to any disturbance to the residents” of the surroundings.
