As Resident Advisor reports, Amsterdam’s mayor Eberhard van der Laan has approved 24-hour licenses for three clubs in the city. Radion (pictured above), Cruquiusgilde, and a new, as-yet-unopened venue from the people behind the recently closed Trouw will join the already-24-hour-licensed Tolhuistuin and Tower Overhoeks North if—as is expected—the city’s council rubber-stamps the permits.

The move comes in the wake of widespread shock in the UK at a move in the opposite direction from Glasgow City Council, whose revoking of The Arches‘ clubbing license has been widely condemned as an attack on both the city’s clubbing scene and the country’s wider arts scene.
