Platform 28 gets licence for 560

01 Apr 2010

By Alison Kinkade

Having received a planning permit controversially last October, the Platform 28 tavern in the Goods Shed North in Bourke St has now been granted a liquor licence.

After originally applying for a licence for 750 patrons, the venue was late last month granted an on-premises licence for 560.

A spokesperson for its developer Equiset said it had not yet read the liquor licence conditions and, therefore, could not determine when the venue would open.

The president of the Docklands Community Association, Roger Gardner, said he was pleased with noise limitations put on external areas but said patron numbers for the entire venue were still too high.

“It’s good that the number of patrons has been cut back, but it’s still a hell of a lot of people,” he said.

On the other end of the spectrum, the NewQuay premises that were to be occupied by the proposed Uber Bar and Lounge has been put up for lease.

Sallypen Pty Ltd lodged an application for a general liquor licence in late November for a bar to be located at 29 St Mangos Lane.

Chris Ellis applied for the bar to open from 10am-1am, Monday-Saturday and 10am-11pm on Sunday.

Residents, police and City of Melbourne had objected to the application. It is understood that Mr Ellis no longer wishes to pursue the licence.  Mr Ellis was contacted, but failed to return the calls.

The Platform 28 ruling means that the venue will be able to host 90 patrons on its ground floor external area and 190 on its first floor external area. It will not be allowed live or amplified music in its external areas at anytime, however it will be allowed background music until 10pm daily.

Trading on Friday and Saturday nights will cease at midnight in the external areas, but will be allowed to continue within the remainder of the premises until 1am.

Stricter opening hours have been granted for Monday to Thursday and Sunday, with trading in external areas to cease at 11pm and all trading to cease at midnight.

It has also been granted permission to operate on Good Friday and Anzac Day from 12noon till 11pm in its external areas and till midnight in the remainder of the premises.
