These writers have considered; who and what is involved in producing nightlife spaces (for example, designing, marketing, selling, property markets, corporate strategies etc); who and what is involved in regulating them (for example laws and legislation, surveillance, entrance points, codes of conduct); who and what are the consumers and consumption practices that are present in the consumption practices that surround them (for example, lived experience, perceptions and stereotypes).

However, at ‘street level’, violence and disorder has been shown to be of minimal concern, particularly in the context of the large numbers of people who enjoy drinking alcohol in cities (see Valentine et al.
