No more happy hour...

Recommended Posts

"If approved, it would make happy hours illegal and would allow local boards to refuse a licence if an area was already flooded with pubs and clubs."

Weren't they supposed to be doing this in Aberdeen with the minimum drinks price not two months ago? i've got a funny feeling this won't go through either.

this happened in glasgow ages ago (the ban on happy hours)...cheap pubs stayed cheap and expensive ones stayed expensive. Not that much difference really i dont think.

apparently pubs aren't allowed to put up posters or give out flyers with drinks offers on them, but that hasn't stopped pretty much every pub on Belmont Street displaying 'make it a double for 1 more' posters everywhere.

Does anywhere have happy hours anymore? I suppose we could kiss good bye to spinning the wheel at Flying Circus if it goes through.

Pubs are allowed to promote drinks prices, but clubs aren't - if that isn't an example of stupid local legislation, what is? :|

Difference being that Aberdeen's decision would have contravened the licensing laws, whereas this will change the licensing laws.
