There is a difference between "Non-essential" and "Unnecessary".
A pub is not "Essential" to life, but it's a social need: drinking at home does not fill the same needs.
A hairdresser is not "Essential" - but my life would be really rather short if I had to cut Herself's hair!
A restaurant is not "Essential", but it's important to relationships and to business.
Clubs aren't "Essential", but it's where boy meets girl and the parents of the future take their first steps in that direction.
And "Little shops" provide a significant number of the jobs (and thus income) that the whole of society requires in order to keep money moving and standards of living improving.

Society can cope without "Non-essential" services, shops, and recreational places for a while: but not forever.
