View Full Version : The Bar Wars Are On

As a frequent Peeler, I find it slightly ridiculous that patrons need to be asked to keep the noise down in order to keep the neighbours happy! I don't blame the venue for trying to quiet down rowdy groups, but what kind of stupid idiot decides to buy a house near a late-night/all-night, licenced, dance club and not expect a little noise? In my opinion, they forfeited their right to complain when they signed on the dotted line! No-one forced them to buy in that location!

If only "house inspections" meant being able to sleep a night in the unit, try before you buy sort of deal. Apparently a lot of city-dwellers are shocked when they realise what happens after dark - street cleaning, garbage collections, deliveries, sirens, not to mention drunks..

Agree 100% Erin. Isn't that the whole point of living in the city in the first place? That you WANT to be close to all the restaurants, bars, clubs etc? And then you get those Chapel St dwellers who've been living there for years and say it never used to be this bad - well this is progress people. What did you expect, you'd be living in a village all your life? Honestly. Not many things really piss me off, but innercity residents making noise complaints is right up there.

I live just off Fitzroy street and I've never had a problem with drunken ness, after living all my life in big cities i think you get used to it, the only thing I don't like, is being woke at 4am by crack/meth head theatre, that's not the best but guess eventually will eb able to sleep though that aas well.

I think everyone should be respectful at any hour when normal ppl are sleeping - its not like i walk down the road at 1am in the morning yodelling and making a scene*.
Having said that, if a neighbour is having a party or something i think back to all the times i've had loud parties and i don't call the cops or give them greasies... unless of course they do it every weekend without any respite.
i reckon the Peel and other establishments should just have signs saying "think of someone else for a change and then we'll all have a good time"
*have done once or twice and had karmic payback via neighbours lawn mowers, datsuns that refuse to start (and owners that refuse to give up) and sparrows farting.
