Inner-city pubs to ban drunken patrons
A group of Newcastle hotels has joined together to create security policy aimed at reducing anti-social behaviour.
MJ Finnegans, Fannys, King St Hotel, the Cambridge and the Queens Wharf Brewery are listed among the most violent venues in New South Wales.
The pubs are introducing ID scanners and the systems will be linked so that patrons banned from one venue would be stopped from entering the others.
Russell Richardson, who owns Fannys and the King Street hotel says people’s privacy will be protected when they visit the hotels involved.
