Staying indoors. For London’s Nightlife, is it Last Orders?

On Thursday, a loud clatter on the street in London’s Soho district at about 11:00 p.m. One of the most well-liked bars in the city, The French House, is closing its windows; the 35-year-old business owner, Lesley Lewis, says she would like to continue operating later, but the lack of transportation choices would make it difficult for her staff to get home. Additionally, fewer people are drinking than she used to. People don’t have the funds,” she stated to CNN.

Since the coronavirus pandemic rocked them four years ago, many other pubs, bars, and nightclubs in some of the world’s largest cities have been facing this issue.

According to the Nighttime Industries Association, almost 3,000 nightclubs in London and its environs have closed since March 2020. This represents a 15% decrease from the pre-pandemic figure, and it’s the most significant drop of any area in the nation outside of Wales.

The chief executive of the trade association, Michael Kill, claims that during that time, the average operational expenditures of these companies increased by 30% to 40% even though fewer people were entering their establishments.

He told CNN that large portions of their clientele continue to work from home for part of the week, which is unfortunate for bars and pubs that depend on luring office workers in for after-work beverages. In the meantime, many people are being discouraged from traveling because of the absence of late-night transportation options and worries about violence.
