Inadequate night life entertainment facilities

Many cities close down at night, and do not have adequate facilities for the evening entertainment of the population. Conversely, those cities which provide entertainment often do so on a lavish scale that is actually alienating. Those cities that do provide a few facilities often have their cinemas, cafes, ice cream parlours, etc, scattered throughout the community, so that each one cannot, by itself, generate enough attraction; furthermore, such scattered night spots attract crime. There are very few cities that have suitable centres of mutually enlivening night places, such as for instance a cinema, a restaurant and a bar together with a bookshop open till midnight or, say, a launderette, liquor store and cafe near to a meeting hall and beer hall.
