LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM

All night tube will ignite London’s night life, says JLL


​Commenting on the impact of the London all night tube service, Jake Bernstone, F&B Specialist at JLL London Unlimited, said:  "The night tube will undoubtedly be a boost to London's night time economy with a projected 200,000 users past midnight. The rise of convenient and affordable taxi services such as Uber soften the impact slightly, but overall, operators of late night bars, restaurants and clubs will only see a benefit from this decision. 

"A more vibrant night time economy makes London an even more attractive place to visit for tourists as well. With the uncertainty around Brexit and rising inflation, the tourist economy is more important than ever for London. Introducing the night tube means London joins other major cities including New York, Berlin and Copenhagen in doing so and these cities can no longer claim the competitive advantage.

"In a city of rising property prices and rents, more bars are going out of business as the rent demanded by landlords require full all day trade to make a decent return.  The night tube will ensure that the bars and clubs have a more captive audience, resulting in more staying in business. This can only be a good thing for Londoners; whilst London's food scene has taken off, the late night sector has stagnated in recent years."
