The licensing officer reported that the representations from the ward councillor and the Better Archway Forum had been withdrawn, leaving one resident representation outstanding.  Over 75 letters of support had been received and forwarded by the applicant.


The two applicants stated that the concern detailed in the representation was mainly around teenagers hanging around outside the premises. The café had been open as a takeaway and their clients would be mainly young professionals. There would be no vertical drinking. This was a food led and not alcohol led premises. The food menu would change weekly and there was a limited drinks menu. There were 24 seats inside and 12 seats outside. There were conditions regarding CCTV and fire safety. At least one of them would be on the premises each day.  They were expecting to be open in the main Thursday to Saturday, with a last order of 10pm. They were a café with a small drinks offering and had received a lot of support from local residents. He considered that the opening of the café had prevented drunken behaviour outside. Neighbours had commented that this was the case. It was stated that alcohol would be served as a complement to the food. This was a restaurant and not a bar. They had both worked in restaurants for a long time. There were no similar places on the road currently. They would be serving wine and their customer base would be young professionals or older.  They did not really want teenagers as their customers.


In response to questions, it was noted that the applicant had applied for all week as he wanted to cover himself if required.  It was hoped that if things went well they would extend to Tuesdays and Wednesdays if they could.  They could use temporary event notices for events. This was not going to be a late night venue. They wanted to be flexible and give the opportunity to other chefs who might want to do promotional events or as a pop-up on a Wednesday. Events would be ticketed and would be held to showcase chefs. There would still only be seating inside for 24 covers. These would not be held regularly. They wanted to have three or four main evenings.
