Olympic night club in Bow forced to reduce opening hours
A campaign by residents to reduce the opening hours of a �2million night club in Bow during the Olympics has partly succeeded.
Plans to open the club, holding 3,750 people in a converted Victorian stable block on Fish Island, for two months around the time of the Olympics were approved last year despite opposition from nearby families fearing sleepless nights.
After getting the go-ahead from London Thames Gateway Development Corporation, overseeing the site at Swan Wharf, the owners applied to Tower Hamlets council to stay open until 2am seven days a week with party-goers leaving the island by water taxi.
But the council’s licensing committee last week decided the club should close before midnight between the Games.
Owners Surrey Vale will still be able to provide entertainment until 2am during the Olympics and Paralympics,
