Decision (including reasons if different from those set out in report):

 

The Sub-Committee considered an application by Leisurebox Limited Ltd, for a premises licence variation in respect of Queens Ice Club, 17 Queensway, London, W2 4QP.  The Licensing Officer provided an outline of the application to the Sub-Committee.

 

The applicant’s representative, Mr Anderson, advised the Sub-Committee that an issue has arisen and that he was asking for an adjournment.  He was of the view that one of the conditions (41) which the applicant was requesting to be amended, should already be a condition within the current licence and this would need further investigation. This impacted on the adverse impression that would be given regarding other areas of the premises near to the main restaurant area.

 

Mr Panto, the legal adviser to the Licensing Sub-Committee, confirmed that he was aware of a previous variation decision that appeared to have been granted under delegated authority and which was not reflected on the current licence.   

 

The Sub-Committee agreed to adjourn the application to a later date, agreed as 21st June 2018.

 

2.

Sale by Retail of Alcohol; Late Night Refreshment; the Performance of dance and live music; the Playing of recorded music and the provision of private entertainment with a view to profit.

 

To extend the area of the premises where the activities could take place so as to include the Ice Rink Café, the Rink View Café and the Viewing gallery (with the consumption of alcohol being ancillary to a table meal until 7pm) and to extend the area for the sale and consumption of alcohol to the Ice Rink Area when a pre-booked planning function was taking place.
