Nightclubs will be able to open fully for the first time since March 2020.

And haven't we missed them!

Here's what we know you'll be able to do at nightclubs from Monday.

Basically you'll be able to dance with your full face on show according to the Government.

Instead of mask-wearing in such settings, the Government is recommending that businesses and large events use “certification” as a basis of entry to venues deemed “high risk”, especially when prevalence of coronavirus is high as it is currently.

They'll all be able to open at full capacity, with no sit-down socially distanced night events.

As for bars and pubs, table service is recommended to continue in bars but it is up to the venues.

Here's what some in Southampton are saying:

Belgium and Blues, Above Bar Street.

The bar and brasserie have laid out their rules ahead of Monday.

"A little word on next weeks reopening.

"We are of course desperate for more freedoms but we need to remain responsible and aware of the fact that this pandemic is not over and cases are on rise.

"As of next week despite all restrictions being lifted we are choosing to keep some in place and hopefully strike a balance between extended freedoms and the safety of both our staff and you lovely lot."

Cafe Parfait, Above Bar Street

One of the venues to be opening at midnight on Monday to kick off July 19 with a bang, Cafe Parfait won't require a negative Covid test or Covid passport.

"It’s finally time to open our doors as a nightclub once again!

"From Monday 19th July we can finally allow you to dance and enjoy your nights out once more.

"Cafe Parfait WILL NOT require negative test results or vaccine passports for entry.

"Masks are recommended however it is optional of the customer.

"This will be under constant review and in line with any changes made by the government."

The Edge Nightclub, Compton Walk

These guys are hosting a special Dancing is Back Bitches event at midnight on Monday, to celebrate the restrictions lifting.

They will be open all night with social distancing and Covid rules in place until midnight. Masks will also be required until then. 

Switch Southamton, Above Bar Street

Switch will be hosting a 'Straight Outta Lockdown' Sunday and 'Switch Unlocked Monday' to celebrate 'Freedom Day'. Both events are expected to attract 1,500 people or more.

Switch Southampton WILL NOT require customers to provide negative COVID tests or ‘Covid passports’ on entry.

They recommend masks to be worn, but will not be making it a requirement on entry.
