Hear ye, hear ye…Delhi peeps, not so good news here for all the night crawlers! The Government has banned playing of recorded music in all Delhi resto bars! Whatttt???? Well, it’s true! As per the Government, 2010 Excise Rules state that only restaurants serving alcohol are eligible to have Live bands play in their premises.
The already low lying night life in Delhi seems to have been hit below the belt this time, after half of Hauz Khas shutting down. No points for guessing the woes of party goers in the capital city. This directive has come in application in the wake of complaints flown down by the residents of the surrounding areas, stating disturbance due to the noise!
A little unfair, I think….since the charm of the capital city being the fulcrum of night life, these hits are sure to scrape the charm! A little in exercising the rule…….
Though the directive is sure to have its detrimental effects on business of the bars and lounge owners in Delhi, relying heavily on the various special music nights that the party goers look forward to, but no sweat…yet! Gurgaon is ready to host all the Delhiites at it’s hot and thriving night life.
It awaits to be seen how badly this will affect the businesses, or whether the rule is here to really stay….and for how long!
