A popular Northampton town centre bar is looking to extend its opening hours further into the early morning.

Inventive Service Company Limited has applied to West Northamptonshire Council to keep Revolution Bar in Bridge Street open until 4.30am on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3.30am Mondays to Thursdays.

The bar is currently open until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays but if the request goes through then there would be two-and-a-half extra hours for revellers to stay and party.

If the request is approved, the club would be open seven days a week, with alcohol allowed to be served until 3am from Mondays to Thursdays, and 4am on Fridays and Saturdays.

A West Northamptonshire Council spokesman said anyone with objections has until July 21 to voice them. They can do this by emailing [email protected]

Ministers are said to be deciding whether or not to allow nightclubs to re-open their doors to people without any coronavirus test requirements later this month.

It would be the first time these venues have been allowed to welcome visitors since the pandemic began.

It is thought that the government may allow revellers to return to nightclubs on the new UK freedom date July 19 without having to prove they do not have coronavirus or have been fully vaccinated because this would be ‘too much hassle’.
