New Year 2023: nightclubs celebrate again for New Year’s Eve

After two New Year’s Eve marked by restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, revelers were finally able to return to the nightclubs to celebrate the transition to the new year, Saturday, December 31.

In Bordeaux (Gironde), some have chosen to spend the evening in a packed nightclub. “It’s so good, we’re so happy to meet up with friends, in a city where there is excitement around the New Year,” enthuses a woman. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, many young people have not had the opportunity to celebrate the end of the year in a box.

30% of nightclubs went bankrupt during Covid

For the establishment, too, it is a deliverance. This unrestricted New Year’s Eve is the first in two years. Finding the public at the end of December ensures 20% of annual turnover. In Limoges (Haute-Vienne), the success is complete in a nightclub, the queue to go dancing until the end of the night is several meters long. This December 31 sounds like revenge for the nightlife after the Covid, which precipitated the bankruptcy of 30% of nightclubs.
