Nairobi’s B-Club and Space Lounge clubs were on Friday night shut down by the county government.
The two high end clubs located in Nairobi’s Kilimani area will remain closed after area residents complained of ‘too much noise.’
According to Capital FM, the management had received numerous orders to reduce the noise, all of which they ignored.
”The complaints were streaming in every day and we had no option but to order them shut,” a county official said, adding that more clubs will face closure following a directive from Governor Mike Sonko.
The closure comes a day before Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz appearance at B-Club for a pool party.
In 2016, Space lounge was shut down over similar claims and for running the business despite the expiry of liquor licences.
”It is hereby ordered that a mandatory order is issued against the defendant/respondent directing them to provide the Environmental Impact Assessment License issued to the applicants the proof of compliance by the plaintiff…” the order read.
