Central's Bar

The former 'CAZBAR' premises on Central Road could soon be re-opening its doors as a drinking establishment, if plans are given the green light by Sutton Council.

Sutton based cabbie Stephen Moore and wife Sarah are hoping to transform the venue into 'Central's', with a late licence for Friday and Saturday nights (closing at 12:30am).

The would-be licensees have already held meeting with Knights House nursing home (which backs on to the venue) and with local police in a bid to win convince Council officials to allow the extension of the licence. The former occupants, CAZBAR, were refused a late licence amin concerns over noise levels.

Mr Moore says he is pitching 'Central's' at a more mature audience with no live bands or karaoke (although there will be a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights) and will be encouraging the venue to be a 'community hub' with coffee mornings and a childrens' play area during the daytime.

The consultation over the application will continue until the end of the month.

Good luck with this venture - I hope it goes well. It would be really nice to have more bars and coffee shops in WP and it sounds like we could have two for the price of one! It's encouraging that the potential licencees have taken on board/are addressing some of the issues raised on this blog e.g. lack of places for parents and toddlers to meet up for coffee mornings; consulting locals about concerns before putting plans forward and aiming to discourage anti-social behaviour. I'll be there for a few drinks ...

Almost anything's better than an empty premises. Whether or not the prospective licensees are successful, they should at least be praised for the open and honest manner in which they have approached the community with their proposal.

Speaking of approaching the community openly and honestly, is there any more news of the plans for the surreptitious mosque? (Well, other than it's not a mosque and there are no plans, obviously!)

...but there will be a DJ on the weekend? Doesn't that just play to the same crowd as nearby Midas Touch? Maybe a more mature crowd would prefer some live music (WP sadly lacking in venues)?
