People living in Glasgow spend more on average on a night out than their counterparts from anywhere else in the country, according to a new set of figures.
Research by the Deltic Group, an operator of late night venues around the UK, found that the average Brit now spends a little over £70 on a night out but for Glaswegians the figure is as high as £76.90.
Glaswegians also spend more on food when they’re on a night out than people from any other region, with Edinburgh ranking second in that respect.
Across the UK as a whole, people are believed to be spending on average £14 more now on their typical nights out than they were in September 2018.
More than 2,300 people from different parts of the country were surveyed on behalf of the Deltic Group to get a sense of what spending habits are currently like within what’s often called the ‘late night economy’.
The findings clearly show that people are generally spending more on a night out now than they were a year ago but there are indications too that most consumers are by no means reckless with their spending on nights out.
The research suggests that almost 90 per cent of people budget in some way or another to make sure they can afford to enjoy themselves when they go out.
Most people apparently have at least a rough sense of how much they might spend when they go out and more than one in five refuse to spend any more money once they’ve hit their own self-imposed spending limits.
“This quarter’s Deltic Night Index demonstrates that consumers are spending a significant portion of their disposable income on going out,” said Peter Marks, the chief executive of the Deltic Group.
“However, these aren’t impulse purchases. People are clearly thinking about where and when they spend their money, as shown by the percentage of people that budget, and seek out the best value whilst enjoying a fantastic night out.”
