EVE lawyers are calling styles house residents liars.this is so bad.also they are refusing to agree on so many terms of the review of the new license application.who do they think they are ? no more business from me that's for sure, actualy the last few time we where there with friends we found the food rather tasteless and expensive.
I am somewhat surprised to see their denial that they knew there were problems, given that I personally met with them several times over the last ten years to discuss the issues. Jacks bar, to their credit, haven't tried to deny there are problems and in fact have tried over the last ten years to resolve the problems, but with little cooperation from the other bars in the street.
Yes, Jacks tried to make things better last year but I think they gave up in the end because the other businesses wouldn't cooperate. Jacks do try to get their clients in earlier, but they still play loud music so are not totally innocent. I am really annoyed by EV; max33 is right in that they are really calling us liars. Thai Silk is now complaining and trying to write its own Licensing Conditions. It doesn't look good for either of them really, they both come out as total wingers with so many holes in their arguments. Very sadly I am not able to go to the hearing tomorrow, good luck to those that do and let's hope the committee do the right thing to control these businesses so we can sleep at night.
as it was a "quite a complicated case" (words use by the council commitee ) and we spent nearly four and a half hours debating it ,the council will let us know of the outcome as soon as possible, hopefully next week .I was suprised of the pathetic demands made by Ev to the council as Jack's and Thai silk agreed from the beguining.
The bars have made no attemt to change their behaviour either during the review or since the licence hearing. They really don't care and presumably think they can rely on their expensive lawyers (there were a lot of lawyers in that hearing).
I couldn't be at the hearing because I had a long-standing appointment outside London, however, I have been told all about it. I was quite surprised to come back and find that Thai Silk are still playing music loud enough to be heard up on the 11th floor, so what was said in the meeting, including the comments made by residents hasn't had much impact. I'd like to thank Cllr Morris too because she pushed the council into action.
