  • The city council is seeking to reduce noise disturbances for local residents

As part of its campaign to reduce noise levels in the city, Malaga council has restricted the opening of new bars and leisure establishments in the historic centre and Teatinos district and reduced the hours during which outside terraces can be used.

Bars and restaurants in these areas will have to keep their doors and restaurants closed after 11 pm and are responsible for ensuring their clients do not disturb the neighbours.

The rules affecting these Acoustically Saturated Areas will remain in force for five years.
