With the arrival of the long-awaited phase 3, the country is getting closer to its "new normal" and greater flexibility in the coverage of public premises. And, although the Government has granted some relief in this regard with the opening of bars and terraces and the reunions between family and friends, there is a sphere of social interaction that they seemed to have forgotten: nightlife.

Discussions about nightclubs have been on the sidelines during all this time, but now, after the publication of the ministerial order of June 6, an additional section is granted in Article 18 by which the "reopening of nightclubs nightlife clubs and bars » as long as a third of its capacity is not exceeded.
