The icon could be something like this Nightclub.png


The most logical tag would be

<tag k="amenity" v="nightclub"/>

  • +1. A sister to amenity=pub, appropriate in Frédéric's case :-) MikeCollinson 08:17, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
  • +1 ;-) Hakan 20:51, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Would it be something other than amenity, like shop=? Ohwell, can't hurt so I +1 - LastGrape 23:48, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
    • Having amenity=pub and amenity=restaurant, any other key would be pretty strange ... -- Ulfl 23:54, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
  • I approve the proposal. --Florianschmitt 07:22, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
  • I approve the proposal. -- Ulfl 11:35, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
  • I think this should be a leisure tag, if anything, and not 'amenity'. I can understand a pub or restaurant being classed as amenities because it's useful for travellers to locate sources of food, drink and accommodation.
    • Well, never been out at night in a new town looking for the area where "it's" going on? Having a hint where the pubs, nightclubs, ... concentrates might give you a good hint. -- Ulfl 11:35, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
    • Not arguing against the recording of nightclubs in the GIS Ulfl but what about addressing my point: Leisure or Amenity? Food, shelter, fuel, banks, emergency services all live in amenity. Nightclubs are too fluffy for this category, no? -AT
  • I approve the proposal. --Geoff 08:06, 13 November 2007 (UTC)


I consider this proposal as approved. A discussion will happen later if necessary on whether it should be "amenity/leisure"="pub/nightclub/cafe"... FredB 20:31, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Distinguish from amenity=bar

How to distinguish from amenity=bar? I added wishy-washy statement on there. -- Harry Wood 10:19, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

In some localities I know of in the US, there are laws that require drinking establishments that serve hard alcohol and don't have kitchens to be membership only. Usually the membership costs are minimal (~$5). For these jurisdictions, nightclub is a fairly good clean category. Jumbanho 14:25, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Mapnik Rendering - Revived

I read about the missing mapnik rendering and inspected the trac a bit. I just found the ticket on this and commented it. I would appreciate any help to push this feature. --Guerda 13:27, 18 May 2011 (BST)

I added different as SVG recreated versions of the accepted symbol to the ticket. Vote 4 it ;) --LetzFetz 20:18, 29 August 2011 (BST)
