A Nairobi court has turned down a request by B-Club and three other clubs in the city to re-open as they wait for further direction by the court on matters to do with their licences.
The decision comes months after the licences of B-Club. Explorer Tavern, Kiza Lounge, Space Lounge and Grill were revoked following a successful application was made in regard to the levels of noise affecting personal houses in the area.
Appearing before the court the management of each club cited how they are running into losses amounting to Ksh 400 million.

They continued by citing the number of employees who have been rendered jobless following the decision passed in October 2019.
According the Judge hearing the appeal, she declined to grant the permission to re-open the clubs as it will be against the request of nearby residents who have filled complaints in the past.
Justice Loise Komingoi continued by saying that all the four clubs have failed to prove before the court how the shut down has made them run into millions in losses.
The recent shooting incident of DJ Evolve by Embakassi MP Babu Owino showed how the clubs situated in Kilimani have failed to control revelers.
According to the clubs, they should have been allowed to operate until when the case before the court was heard and decided.
