Strange logic. Edwin's is/was primarily a restaurant open to the public, did not (afaik) play recorded or live music from a roof terrace, or retail alcohol for 'off' consumption, and closes at 10pm. I went there a couple of times and thought it was quite good, but maybe it has suffered from not being very visible.

Also, I think Uncommon already host events at which they provide alcohol, and this licence appears to be to widen their remit to on and off sales, and increase the frequency of such shindigs. Yes, we live in a busy part of town - but why add to the cacophony? Apart from the impact related to the additional noise from the promotional activities, there is increased potential for anti-social behaviour and mess, which requires the intervention of police, wardens and council to clear up.
