Pretty sure I've been in Spiders Web (obviously closed now) at 5am before. It was still open from the night before.

Was that not a lock in?

During festival time and December you could drink 24 hours. 

Nightclubs open from 10pm - 5am.

Casino on york Place has/had a 5am licence. 

Any hotel bar

(providing you know the staff) 

Then stratties at 6am. 

You were never able to do that. The licensing authorities used to make sure there was a half hour break for legal purposes.

I agree with that. We used to go to the casino till it shut at 5.30am then it was Oman's Bar for 6am opening.

Actually, thinking back I think the casino was open till 6am.

This was my uncle's shop. He made an absolute killing, gradually changed the opening hours to 6am if I recall. Don't know if he was the first to do that.

I remember having a pre work pint one early morning in the Penny Black. Australia v Scotland world cup qualifier. 

 

A lot of places were granted early opening for this iirc

Stratties got their early license due to Ferrantis next door and its shift workers

Anyone know how the licensing laws for these pubs are still different from others?
