No licence renewal for Orchard Towers clubs: Nightlife association calls for talks with police, appeal board

No licence renewal for Orchard Towers clubs: Nightlife association calls for talks with police, appeal board

The Singapore Nightlife Business Association has called for a dialogue with the authorities to address concerns among nightclubs and bar operators in Orchard Tower over the sudden move not to renew their licences.

The meeting would hopefully give the operators the opportunity to convince the authorities that they will put up measures in order to get their licence renewed, he told TODAY.

Operators of 12 commercial units at Orchard Towers were told last month that their public entertainment licences will not be renewed past May 31 next year.

The police said that the move not to renew the licences of the 12 nightclubs and bars came after a “consistently high volume of strong feedback from nearby residents and neighbouring developments”.

Affected nightclub operators were disappointed by the sudden move after they spent large sums to resume business when Covid-19 rules were eased.
