A licence has been granted for a new bar and club in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter.
As reported by The Irish News, at Belfast City Council's Licensing Committee, elected members approved an application for a seven day annual indoor entertainments licence for Common Market, which is a new bar at the site of the old Arnott's fruit warehouse at Dunbar Street.
Councillors reportedly followed the recommendation of approval from council officers.
The applicant, Alana Fox of Carlisle Inns, is reportedly also the licensee for the licensed premises adjacent to Common Market, 39 Gordon Street and Lux.
Council Officer Report And No Objections From Emergency Services
A council officer report reportedly stated, "The occupancy is restricted to 350 persons at this time due to emergency exit provision. A fire engineer has provided a strategy to ensure that adequate measures are in place to allow the 350 patrons to escape safely. If in future the applicant wishes to increase the capacity, then additional emergency exits will be required."
The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) reportedly made no objections to the application.
