Late opening bid declined

 Dublin City Council has turned down a request for  extended opening hours to a proposed new café bar and restaurant in the Harcourt Street area.
The council has refused planning permission to an application by the owners of the proposed new facility at the corner of Harcourt Street and Montague Street which sought to remove a condition which restricts its opening hours to 8am-11pm and prohibits its use as a nightclub.
 The developer, Gambetta, a company owned by Don and Catherine Arnold,had sought to a relaxation of a condition imposed by An Bord Pleanála in 2018.
 Gambetta claimed its plans provided an opportunity to enliven the streetscape along Montague Street and Montague Lane through the development of buildings which had fallen into disrepair.
It claimed the opening of the buildings, one of which is a protected structure, would allow the public to “develop an appreciation and an understanding of Georgian Dublin”.
 However, the council ruled that the omission of the restriction on its opening hours would allow the company operate the facility as a nightclub or late-night bar and restaurant which would “result in an overconcentration of such land uses on Harcourt Street”.
