Hindley Street will once again be a hive of activity beginning next week, as nightclubs are given the green light to open their doors.

The reopening will be the first time punters have been allowed back on to the dance floors of Adelaide’s nightclubs since coronavirus lockdowns came into effect in mid-March.

SA Health will grant approval to clubs that wish to reopen from next week, as long as they can prove that the one person per square metre rule will be adhered to within their venue.

Activities considered to be “high risk” will also need to be policed to ensure that punters are keeping their distance in what is likely to be a very different-looking nightclub scenario.

The Advertiser reports that Hindley Street’s Dog and Duck and Woolshed, along with Rundle Street’s Distill are among those that will be hoping to open next week.

Meanwhile, pubs and restaurants across the state will be allowed to double their capacities from Monday as part of the latest easing of restrictions.

Venues will now be allowed to welcome 50 per cent of their regular capacity through the doors, providing that punters can adhere to the one person per two square metre rule.
