Extended opening hours

The Customer service department takes care of the management and the granting of the extended opening hours.

Price of a night with extended opening hours (until 3.00AM) : €35.

Extracts from the law of June 29, 1989, reforming the regime of cabarets (article 17):

  • The normal opening hours of alcoholic beverage outlets are fixed from six o’clock in the morning to one o’clock in the morning of the following day.
  • Individual derogation extending the opening hours to three o’clock in the morning may be granted, upon request, by the mayor, when there is no reason to fear either disturbance of public order and tranquility or intolerable inconvenience to the neighborhood.
  • These authorizations are essentially temporary and may be withdrawn, without giving rise to compensation, when the conditions for granting them are no longer met or if the opening hours are not respected.
  • Where the establishment is kept open beyond normal business hours, the permit must be posted in a place clearly visible from the outside.
  • The municipal council may, in addition, on the occasion of certain festivals and festivities, extend the hours of operation generally until three o’clock in the morning.

Listing of official extended opening hours for the year 2023.
