Kalle Klandorf, Deputy Mayor of Tallinn, has elaborated on the decree of the Tallinn City Government by which two popular Tallinn Old Town Bars – Nimeta Baar and The Shooters – were ordered to shortern their opening hours.
Klandorf said that in an interview with Kuku Radio that the two bars would have to close at midnight on weekdays and 1:00 in the morning on weekend nights starting from February.
Nimeta is currently 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, reported ERR.
Both bars are located in the area that is sometimes considered old Tallinn's noisiest street in the Old Town. Tallinn central district governor Mihhail Korb said earlier that the city was considering similar actions with regard to other Old Town establishments' closing times as well.
