I have received the Licensing application for the new pub on the site of the HSBC bank.
Application for a new public house at 526 – 528 Bearwood Road, Smethwick.
Premises is disused HSBC bank and is to be converted to pub.
Hours 1000 – midnight . Live music, recorded music, late night refreshment and alcohol for consumption on and off the premises. Opening hours 1000 – 0030.
Any representations must be received by 12th March.
Given what people have been saying about the nature of a 'real ale bar' and the issues raised by neighbours, I'm not sure the application for live and recorded music is the smartest move.
