Orlando City Council voted this week to extend a proposed moratorium on any new nightclubs opening downtown for another six months

We told you HERE in February that city staff were pushing to extend the moratorium, which originally rolled out in March 2023. The ordinance was put into place to buy City Hall time to research and refine recommended code amendments to how nightclubs and bars operate in downtown Orlando and further regulations on alcoholic beverage sales. 

The City is actively looking to identify and encourage more daytime uses and programming in its downtown core to transition from an “entertainment destination into a true neighborhood.”

The extended moratorium will now last through September 20, 2024.
