Myth: a thriving evening and night time economy means a bar or music venue on every corner. Fact: a night economy includes a regulated and planned strategy, and respects both those who prefer quiet and those who like to go out. Evening and night time economies create towns and cities that are vibrant and sustainable for all genders, ages, and cultures. Discover how your community can build and support its own night economy.
