    I agree with BlueLady that it depends on what you want to communicate.

    Colour would be used if you wanted to advertise the place as warm and cozy .... But b+w ... for me ... is making a statement about city life or everyday people or .... whatever you want to see in it!
    Thanks for your comment :)

    Higher contrast color would make it more like an Edward Hopper painting...

    Color.... much warmer, has a nice 'feel' to it. The b/w seems flat to me, not enough contrast going on, no place to focus.

    The B&W flattens the scene. We are looking at a bar, full of life and action, in this case the use of color helps to communicate that excitement .
    Color makes it look like a warm, inviting place. This is not a good shot to work with B&W contrast manipulation and tonal range, it would simply make the scene appear more cold and gray.
    Color makes it look 'natural' and by association, welcoming.
