Istanbul refused license

June 26, 2013

On June 13th, Hackney Council’s Licensing Subcommittee decided to REJECT the application from ‘Istanbul Supermarket’ for a club license which would have extended licensable activities into the basement as well as increasing existing hours on the ground floor.

The decision was made because ‘the Licensing Sub-committee were very concerned that the additional hours sought and the use of the basement of the premises for licensable activ ities was likely to result in noise, littering and other public nuisance by patrons. The Sub-committee heard from the premises licens holder that he had not been aply to comply with his terminal hour on a recent occasion… which did not give the Sub-committee confidence in the licence holder’s ability to comply with the restrictions on the premises licence to ensure the licensing objectives were not undermined’.

Fortunately on this occasion five of the people living upstairs managed to escape unharmed, although one had to be treated for the effects of smoke inhalation.
