Challengers say the laws are killing off the city’s nightlife with venues across Sydney closing and hundreds of jobs disappearing.

The legislation requires central Sydney venues to turn people away from 1.30am, serve last drinks by 3am and prohibit the sale of takeaway alcohol after 10pm.

The laws were announced following a number of assaults and deaths connected to alcohol.

Alcohol-fuelled violence has gone down by 32% and there has been no deaths from alcohol related violence since the lockout laws came into effect.
