Two Popular Tallinn Bars to Be Ordered to Close at Midnight ({{commentsTotal}})


Nimeta Baar and Shooters, two establishments on what is sometimes considered old Tallinn's noisiest street, will be told to close earlier starting in February, an official has said.  

Deputy mayor Mihhail Korb said at a press conference Wednesday that documents are being drawn up and will be ready on Monday. 

Another deputy mayor Kalle Klandorf said in an interview with Kuku Radio today that they would have to close at midnight on weekdays and 1:00 in the morning on weekend nights. 

Nimeta, open till 6:00 on weekends and almost as late on other days, has long been a mainstream favorite drinking hole and sports pub, one of many foreign-owned pubs that opened in the 1990s and one of the only ones to survive under its original name.  

Korb said plans are to pare back other establishments' closing times as well. He said that the Ministry of Economic Affairs was consulted on the matter. According to Korb, the ministry said the issue was not in its jurisdiction but noted that the city would not be able to restrict opening hours along the entire length of the street.
