APPLICATION FOR AN EXTENSION OF LIQUOR SERVICE HOURS FROM 12 MIDNIGHT TO 4:00 A.M. FOR INSOMNIC KARAOKE RESTAURANT AT UNIT 100 7911 ALDERBRIDGE WAY
(Report: March 28/03, File No.: 0107-08-01) (REDMS No. 988996)

 

 

Designated Speaker: Alan Clark

 

 

STAFF RECOMMENDATION

 

 

That the application by Insomnic Karaoke Restaurant to the Liquor Control and Licencing Branch for an extension of Liquor service hours from 12 midnight to 4:00 a.m. NOT BE SUPPORTED, and that the Liquor Control and Licencing Branch be advised:

 

 

i)

The potential for noise has been reviewed and it is determined that, the noise factor currently generated from establishments is at times unacceptable, and any extension of hours would compound the issue.

 

 

ii)

The impact on the community has been reviewed, and determined that, extension of late night hours is not in the best interests of Richmond and its residents, citing increased noise issues, (which is already a concern from bars closing at regular hours now), transportation issues, and a major drain on police resources to deal with the issues.

 

 

iii)

The residents, and, with few exceptions, the licencees are quite happy and content with the hours of operation that are currently in place.

 

 

iv)

The RCMP are on record that current police resources do not exist to deal with the late night service of liquor at this time, and, with a 4:00 a.m. last service, patrons could consume to 4:30 a.m. and be leaving with limited availability of taxis, transit and other alternative transportation.

 

 

v)

This establishment has been in contravention of smoking and liquor related bylaws.

Joint inspection team of Richmond RCMP, Provincial Liquor board and City Inspectors carried out inspections Friday 21st March on businesses that are constantly violating bylaws. The subject premise was cited for permitting smoking, operating contrary to primary purpose, (serving more liquor that food), over serving alcohol, offering drink specials contrary to liquor laws, being over capacity, and failing to request identification. Clear indications that no extension of hours should be permitted.
