Extended Bar Hours In Vancouver

Local News Extended bar hours in Vancouver
document.write(dateConvert("2005-03-18 19:12:14"));March 18, 2005 - 4:12 pm
By: Shane Bigham
Vancouver bars may soon be allowed to stay open to three a.m. seven nights a week. The city is working with the province to change the Vancouver Charter; the city wants more enforcement power to deal with problem bars. Karen Hoese with the city says the late night hours were approved in principal in November and they are now waiting for the provincial government to act. These late night hours may spread beyond the entertainment district. There's a public open house next Wednesday about including Davie Village and the Odyssey nightclub on Thurlow. Check the City of Vancouver website for details.

of course it will create more problems...

but i still think they should do it and make them stay open later too... that would be sweet for me at least

how would it really create more problems? it's just an hour difference.

if it was a question of letting them stay open all night, then yes, it would create more problems for the police, but an extra sixty minutes isn't really going to do that much i don't think. night busses run until around 4am anyway, so there wouldn't be any more drunken drivers than there would if the bars closed at 2am.

it seems like a North American phenomenom that ppl can't hold their liquor, or stirr up shit given the chance to drink.

we need to get the kids drinking so they don't act like idiots when they get to bar-going age.

^my mom has been letting me drink since i was 15 years old. i think it was a good decision because it taught me to drink responsibly...i didn't go out and get really really wasted and puke all over the place at high school parties because drinking wasn't a big deal for me since i could do it at the dinner table if i wanted too.

notice how in europe there is no age requirements for anything..
is there any problems out there..? i think not.

back east, well in Montreal.. there is at least 1 club open at any given time during the day/night..

i think its a good idea..

im underage.. my parents will let me drink.. but they jus inform me not to drink too much.. they trust my judgement.

oh, i've been drunk. but i was just saying that i didn't go out and drink as much as i could as fast as i could when i went to parties like most of my friends did. their philosophy was that if you didn't puke, it wasn't a good night.

Not all of Europe. You must also consider that most of the problems will be caused by people adjusting to the transistion. Look when we first got the 4am openings - Granville Street was a mess. As we adjust as a society to accept it as the norm less problems result This is what you see in the European countries you were referring to, and adjusted society.

My parents never encouraged me to drink, but they didn't make a big deal about it if I did. I agree with Sidekick. I'm not sure if this works for everyone though.

I've heard from a lot of people that Vancouver has the worst nightlife of all the big cities in Canada. I'm not big on travel, but I agree. Vancouver needs to liven up! I think the bar hour extension's a step in the right direction. Won't it be better to have people stay inside longer than causing fights outside? Plus maybe by the time they're out of the clubs, they'll probably be too tired.

you fucking guys can't handle your acohol anyways, so another hour isn't going to change anything for a majority of you.

of course it'll create more problems in that it'll require a large police presence later than it does now. however, there won't suddenly be mass violence just because the bar's open later. one really needs to look at the cost though, because i'm not sure if vancouver could support a nightlife to rival that back east or in europe, or enough of one to make timing changes cost effective.

Woah, hold on a minute; Europeans are just good at pretending alcohol's not a problem. Go watch a bunch of drunk 14-year old Italian kids playing Vespa bumper cars, or the French dude I saw driving at 150 or so on the freeway with a cigarette in one hand and a bottle of wine in the other. Don't even get me started with England or Ireland.

Alcohol is always going to make it easier for stupid people to do stupid things, whether or not they're allowed to have it. But yeah, the European way is a hell of a lot more fun.

^^ fucking right!.. ** meant for sinnerman**

i mean..

fuck, obviously there is gonna be problems its not gonna be perfect...
but seriously.. if we had the nightlife from back east.. over here.. this would be the most perfect place to live.. the climate is awesome.. and then the nightlife...

BC is not open for change at all... at least 10 yrs behind on things.. its sad..

it's not fun at all... a CITY as big as Vancouver should be fun.. im not looking forward to turning 19 at all.. becuz it wont be that great of a deal... turning 18 on the other hand.. hell ya.. cuz at least i'll be legal in Montreal and thats where the best club life is IMO.

hmm. i never saw that. I went to the Munich Biergarten 2 years ago and it was nice to see young and old alike just drinking socially and not for the express purpose of getting hammered like a lot of people here.
