A temporary ordinance introduced by Orlando City Council on March 20, 2023. that prevented any new nightclubs from opening in downtown Orlando looks likely to be extended.


The original moratorium was introduced to improve safety and address negative effects caused by the nightclubs in the downtown area.


The original ordinance is set to expire on September 20, but city official want to extend that moratorium for another six months until March 20, 2024.


The ordinance temporarily restricts the city from accepting, processing and deciding on applications for new permits and zoning approvals for nightclubs in the downtown area..


It also established a new alcohol sales permitting process that would require any club or bar that sells alcohol between midnight and 2 am to obtain a special after-midnight permitt, have metal detectors, ID scanners and added security at the cost of the business owners.


Orlando city commissioners have this week approved the first reading on the proposed extension of the six-month moratorium, with Orlando City Council hearing the final reading and public comment on the extension at its next meeting on August 14, before it votes on extending the moratorium.


If the extension is approved, city commissioners say they will use the time to allow for more time to research further “appropriate regulations” for downtown nightclubs.
