Please support "amenity=nightclub"

The difference between pub and nightclub is, that latter have got a dancefloor. Thus it is inscrutable to me, why pubs are supported in Potlatch but nightclubs are not.

The amount of nightclubs in OSM is progressively growing.

It's not at all "inscrutable", it's just that no-one has added it. :)

To add this we would need a good-quality icon consistent with the SJJB set that we use (see in 16x16 and 24x24 sizes (or as an SVG).

Hello Richard,

some suggested icons for nightclubs can be found here: :-) Does one of these match your needs?

The icons suggested on #4025 are completely unidentifiable at the sizes we use for the mapnik layer. We need a better symbol before it is likely to get added.

I beg to differ. We're for example actively using this icon:

and it comes out ok. Compare this to a 16px version of one of the recommended logos,

and I think that the latter is ok as well. (I've googled for inspiration about better symbols, but the main themes other than a record player were glasses which we've already used for our bar icon, and dancing people which required a *lot* more detail.)

Please ignore my previous comment. I had assumed we'd be talking Mapnik icons, not Potlatch. I cannot say anything about Potlatch. Sorry.
