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.
