First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s definition of a nightclub, in relation to the introduction of vaccine passports, will capture swatches of Scotland’s nighttime economy, UKHospitality Scotland has warned.
Research from CGA indicates consumers have shown strong interest in visiting nightclubs since reopening on July 19, with 43% of 18 to 24 year olds – a core demographic for the late night sector - having visited a nightclub within ten days of them reopening. However, there were also signs of apprehension among some returning guests.
CGA research indicates that 56% of consumers have returned to restaurants, pubs and bars since 19 July, although a continued focus on social distancing measures in venues is keeping sales below pre-Covid levels. In total, around three quarters (73%) of consumers have returned to the out-of-home market since venues could reopen in April.
