Bengaluru's restaurants, night clubs, star hotels to go on till 1 am every day

Bangaloreans can now toast for a longer time as after years of restrictions, the garden city’s restaurants, bars, star hotels and eating joints can remain open till 1 am every day. Earlier, after the recommendation of Bengaluru Police, the state government had imposed a restriction which forced the joints to wrap up their business by 11:30pm. The new amendment is welcomed by the citizens since now they can also enjoy the nightlife in the city just like other metros.

Excise commissioner released a notification on Thursday which stated that the business hours of clubs, star hotels, eateries and bars have been extended to 10am to 1pm from Friday. The notification doesn't specify a time period, saying the deadline has been implemented until further orders. This means the notification doesn't need to be updated every year.

Commenting on the new move, NS Megharik, Commissioner, Bengaluru Police said that the department favours the move; it has communicated the decision to the government well in advance. Department has recently extended the deadline for eateries to 1am throughout the week. He further stated that it wouldn’t be a much of a problem if pubs and bars stayed open till 1am.

Certainly the extension of time barrier has fumed a new life among the denizens of the city. Twitteratis have flooded on the social media by posting their views about the move. "Return of nightlife in Namma Bengaluru," tweeted Bineesh Manikandan. "En route to Bengaluru! Looking forward to the am deadline #Bangalore," read another tweet.
