Over 40 nightclubs in Bergen have been praised by the liquor licensing office after a major inspection this weekend. Nevertheless, the municipality is critical of poor queuing culture among some guests.
The liquor licensing authority in Bergen municipality carried out a comprehensive inspection of the nightlife in the city from Saturday night to the early hours on Sunday.
“We carried out 40 inspections this weekend at the largest nightclubs in Bergen. A few places received guidance from us, but we found no basis for issuing any fines. I am satisfied with what I saw,” said the head of the agency, Terje Gjertsen to Bergensavisen.
However, Gjertsen said he was critical of some of the guests not always following the guards’ recommendation.
”People queuing did not listen even when the guards clearly said the venues were full and that they will not let more people in. Not good behavior,” he added, summing up the behaviour of the weekend partygoers.
Section leader in the West police district Ole Bjørn Sveen told the newspaper that the police have not received feedback on problematic behavior in the queues. However, he pointed out that they do not have the capacity to be the Coronavirus police in Bergen.
