Keep it down

Or, you'll be emulating Paris, in Barcelona:

MADRID – The supreme court condemned a bar owner in Barcelona to four years in jail for noise pollution.

The court also said the man should have also been condemned for the offence of injuring his neighbours.

....He was convicted for an offence against ‘natural resources and the environment’. He must all pay four neighbours compensation of between EUR 10,000 -6,000 for damaging their mental health and personal intimacy.

The court said the restaurant owner was aware of the damage the noise was doing to the lives of the neighbours and their health.
