The Shaftesbury Club at 128 Lavender Hill have applied for an extension to their current hours.
They are applying to extend their hours for music and entertainment to midnight seven days a week, and for the sale of alcohol until midnight every night except Friday and Saturday for which they have applied for a 1am licence.
Their current hours are until 11pm Monday to Saturday and 10.30pm on Sunday.
I genuinely have no idea what the Shaftesbury Club is. Until recently I suspect most people would have walked past without even noticing it was there, although the smoking ban and a much more prominent sign will have changed that in recent years. The story I heard many years ago is that it was established for Shaftesbury Park Estate residents who had no pub or club because a covenant prevents a sale of alcohol on the estate. I have no idea how true either part of that is, but imagine the club continues to serve a local clientele.
If you want to make a representation you have until 7 July. Representations must relate to the four licensing objectives:
- The prevention of crime and disorder
- The prevention of public nuisance
- Public safety
- The protection of children from harm
The council’s licensing pages provide more information.
