Office of Nightlife at City Hall
Mayor de Blasio signed the legislation into law that officially establishes an Office of Nightlife. The NYC Hospitality Alliance had been urging the creation of a city-run Office of Nightlife for years and this advocacy was heard. This office serves as the intermediary between city agencies, law enforcement, residents and the nightlife industry; assist nightlife businesses with permitting and licensing matters; and promote an economically and culturally vibrant nightlife industry. We've witnessed the benefits and success similar offices have had on the nightlife industry in other cities likes San Francisco and Amsterdam. Now we are proud to say NYC will have our own Office of Nightlife, which also established and advisory board which our executive director and counsel were appointed, and the former elected it chairperson.
