Update on Bar A Bar

Residents living near Bar A Bar are aware that this venue has been a source of noise nuisance and disturbance for a number of years.

The police have been gathering evidence over the last few months showing that the club is breaking the terms of its license - opening until the early hours of the morning.

As a result, the police submitted a review of Bar A Bar's license and this was heard at a committee hearing at the Town Hall last week.

A number of conditions were imposed - including closing the club for a fortnight, with it not being allowed to re-open until the Police are satisfied that the owners will act more responsibly in the management and operation of the club.

This was also put on record at the hearing:
"For the public record, the sub-committee gave long and serious consideration of the options to revoke the premises licence and/or remove the designated premises supervisor and we reiterate the words of the police representation that this is seen as a last and final chance for the licensee to demonstrate that he can operate within both the terms of his licence and the spirit and words of the Licensing Act."
