Every major city should have a gov't protected entertainment area. That means, no lockouts, security guards and police floating around and it's zoned so complaints about noise etc are VOID. You can't move into the area, it can't be deemed for housing
So you have clubs for comedy, live music and theatre. It's open 24/7 and for a certain distance it's declared a noise zone, so no residential can go within 3 km of it. Ever! Private applications are made with some help from gov't.
