New Plymouth's Crowded House bar last night got official approval to close Devon St East between Gover St and Liardet St for its Bikes, Blues and Hot Cars event in February next year.
The plan is to close the street each Thursday night in the four weeks leading up to the start of the February 28 event for Bike Nights to help promote the three-day festival.
The owners of neighbouring bar Our Place were initially against the closures but have withdrawn their opposition.
