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)

Changes made by user Rtfm - please consult documentation before making edits

Template:Common tags to use in combination is problematic and should not be used, see its page and talk page. is not more helpful than listing this tags with explanation - especially, what is the point of empty "Map rendering" column? What is the point of tiny thumbnails? What is the point of this bloated template? Putting "Tool to test the opening hours format " on every page like you are doing is also a bad idea. It is not viable to document all QA tools on every tag page

@Rtfm: Please, read documentation linked above. Please reply here before reverting. Note that multiple people (not just me like you claimed here) are not happy about this template as it makes customization harder and is confusing for less technical people.
primary problem of Taglist template are display of pointless things including empty "Map rendering" column and pointless images
Though atrocious performance is also a problem. "switch from your modem to DSL, then it should work better" at 342 Mbps Taglist template often needs multiple seconds to display its content. Some serious benefits would be needed to justify this. Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 16:32, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
It will be a while before he can answer you here. User Rtfm had been warned that he would be blocked for one year if he participates in edit wars again. He decided to do so anyway, and so for the next 12 months he can only edit his user talk page. --Lyx (talk) 16:45, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
