Re: Re: Cafe Bars the new architectural challenge
Unfortunately the regulations are prescriptive to 130 sq m whilst Beweys is 920 sq m at ground level alone, the idea behind the regulations is to discourage super-pubs and ensure that people have some food while drinking.
The decision on the former planet hollywood restuarant was delivered during the week in favour of the super drink barn, it is to prevent this happeneing again that the regulations have been passed. It will ultimately blur the lines between bars and cafes which should be a good thing subject to each case being judged on its merits.
Re The Clarendon I would have no objection to a few more of those appearing a stunning job and a visionary investor to put the money down for such a spec job.
