When will nightclubs reopen in Europe?

 

Last updated May 28, 2021

Travelling during the Covid-19 Pandemic can be a hassle as things evolve quickly and restrictions are put in place rapidly to curb the spread of the virus. As a result, you might struggle to find the right information for each country. We have tried to summarise the different restrictions when it comes to bars and clubs.

We will update that list on a weekly basis when things evolve. Pretty much everywhere in Europe, clubs will prohibit dancing and clubbing as we all know it pre-pandemic. Bars and clubs might be open usually up to midnight - 1am but seating will be required, with a few exceptions here and there. Keep scrolling to find out more about a give country. Countries are listed alphabetically for ease.

We have read most travel guidelines if you are travelling around Europe during the Coronavirus Pandemic:

  • 1.Expect bars and restaurants to check your temperature at the entrance, and wear a mask
  • 2.Expect to socially distanced from other customers, group larger than 5 won't be able to sit together
  • 3.You might have to book your booth at the bar, restaurant, club in advance and even pay up-front sometimes
  • 4.Most places will close at around midnight, 1 am. Even earlier in the North of Europe
