Italian restaurant gets 3.30am licence

LATE-opening Bournemouth restaurant Peppinos has been granted permission to extend its weekend opening hours up to 3.30am.

The Italian restaurant, in Charminster Road, will be able to serve food and alcohol up to 3am on Saturday and Sunday mornings, under conditions agreed with Dorset Police and Bournemouth Council’s environmental health team.

Speaking at the licensing committee hearing yesterday, manager Golnaz Nami-Jahromi said the aim was to provide an alternative late-night venue to the area’s nightclubs, as well as a post-club eatery, and confirmed that outdoor areas would still be shut from 1.30am. Councillors agreed conditions that the restaurant should have tables and staff ready for 70 dining customers during the extended hours, and that door staff should be provided should they be requested by the police.

why would you want to stop others?
Maybe if people are having a meal and actually sitting around a table having a decent conversation into the late hours they wont be out binge drinking and causing trouble.

Really ?? How about those out there trying to earn an honest living in the night time economy? Should they go on benefits instead?

Superb! There is nothing better than a plate of garlic bread and a bowl of bolognese at 3am after a night on the lash! Ridiculous!

If they are knocking out takeaway pizzas then I can understand it but a license to sell alcohol in a sit down Italian at 3am for 70 covers is plain crazy.

I fail to understand the need to be eating food out of the home or basicly anywhere at 3.00am.!! Maybe trying to keep up with abroad, but even they shut at a reasonable time of night. Still I suppose its another outlet to go when the pubs and bars turn out and nowhere else to go.!! Of course some will say if your a night worker you may need to eat at 3.00am.!!?

I don't see the problem with it - when I worked in a restaurant I would regularly see groups of diners of 4 or more (hardly a big group, just two couples) come in for dinner at 8pm, finish eating and sit talking until closing time at 11. For groups of more people we would allow more time - a group of 6 or 8 might book for 8, stand around at the bar talking until about 8:30, order at about 9pm, and by closing time they really weren't ready to leave; I could imagine them still sitting around talking until at least 2am given the chance, larger groups would probably stay even later.
These weren't 'youngsters' trying to neck as many Jagerbombs as possible, but respectable middle aged, middle class people who had dressed up for a night out to socialise with friends.

Unfortunately certain people seem to associate the mere mention of a late licence to serve alcohol with nightclubs and late night stand-up drinking. Going out for a sit down meal at 3am might sound like the end to a night on the tiles, but I would assume the intention is for the extension of the licence to cater mainly for those who have spent the whole night in the restaurant eating and talking, who want a night out without going to a nightclub.

This idea might be incomprehensible for some, which is why I would suggest bearing this in mind the next time you go for a meal with friends and get kicked out of the restaurant before you're ready to leave, or how much antisocial behaviour you partake in after leaving a dinner party late at night.

I don't work for Peppinos.

Can you actually imagine the scenes in there at say, 2:30am?

Seriously low rent carbonara being knocked out to people screaming across tables from each other.

It would make a good reality TV show.

Finally someone who gets it, and as someone else said, in places like Spain and Italy the evenings out don't usually start until 10-11pm. Maybe one of the reasons they don't have massive binge drinking problems like we do.

What does that matter? I haven't lived in Spain, but I've been there on holiday, and I was slightly alarmed to see most of the restaurants empty at 10pm on the first night, worried that they were about to close; the reality was at that time they hadn't started to get busy.

As I said, I used to work in a restaurant and would see people eat their dinner and sit around talking and nursing a glass of wine for another couple of hours, then have a coffee and maybe a liqueur before getting a taxi home. Just because they had spent several hours in an establishment with a licence to serve alcohol didn't mean everyone staggered out of there blind drunk, and if they did have more to drink than they would normally have had, a restaurant atmosphere isn't conducive to "alcohol related trouble" in the same way as a bar or nightclub.

Surely everyone knows that a few glasses of wine with a meal is far 'safer' and more 'social behaviour' than going out on the lash on an empty stomach?

I have lived there,and there is a big difference in being on holiday and living there.They do start late,and take their time,but i did not see a lot of them drinking at 3am in the morning,they too have to work the next day.But as you say, i also did not see the drunkeness,and very rarely any trouble,and of course a glass of wine with a meal is ok.
