Irish Pubs: Full nightclub rules and major change for bars as reopening is confirmed
Nightclubs are expected to reopen for the first time since the pandemic began on Friday night, and people are eager to hit the dance floors.
Indoor events and mass gatherings in places such as nightclubs are now allowed, provided all customers have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid within the past six months.
All you need to access it is your Covid digital certificate and, of course, photo ID.
Although nightclubs and pubs are fully reopened, some changes have been made to their operation in the pre-Covid era.
Here’s all you need to know:
How many people will be admitted?
Nightclubs will be allowed to open at full capacity, while live concerts will be allowed to have 1,500 people standing with 100% seating.
In hospitality establishments such as pubs and restaurants, tables for up to 15 people with a maximum of 10 adults can be reserved.
There will no longer be a limit on the number of tables that can be reserved.
The closing time that was imposed at 11:30 p.m. has also been removed, meaning pubs and nightclubs can resume their normal opening hours.
Can you order drinks from the bar?
People will be able to order their drinks at the bar as long as they join a socially distanced queue.
After receiving your drinks, you must return to your table to have them.
Tourism Minister Catherine Martin said: “What we don’t want is the congregation in the bars, and we hope that customers will respect that, and want it because there is the element of security of public health which must be respected. “
Do you have to wear a face mask?
In nightclubs, masks must be worn, but they can be removed while drinking or dancing.
Ads will require you to wear a mask when you are not seated.
Will the move be authorized?
The question on everyone’s lips is whether the change will be allowed from tonight.
And the response seems quite encouraging, as Dr Tony Holohan told the Irish Mirror that while people coming together carry “increased risk” he was not going to “dictate” what people can and cannot. not to do.
