'Village du Soir' in Geneva in trouble over noise complaints
The Geneva commune of Lancy has banned the nighttime venue ‘Village du Soir’ from selling drinks on the terrace.
The move comes after claims of noise level violations from nearby residents. They sent a petition signed by 150 complainants.
The venue has been running for the last two years – but the permission to stay there is temporary. It will have to close when the construction starts for renovation of the area.
The last straw seems to be an outside concert, which is specifically banned under the agreement the venue has with the commune and canton. But organizers say it was part of the Fete de la Musique.
Talks with the commune are continuing.
