A POPULAR Bournemouth cocktail bar is applying to expand its business to Southbourne.

The Dancing Jug is a cocktail bar and restaurant offering live sports, quiz nights, karaoke, and a party atmosphere.

Other Dancing Jug bars can be found at Poole Hill, Bournemouth, and Charminster Road, Charminster.

Now, an application has been submitted for a premises license in 2 Southbourne Grove.

The building used to belong to the former Lloyds Bank which closed in March 2021.

When approached by the Daily Echo about the plans, Dancing Jug said: β€œAll will be revealed when the time is right.”

In the application, it has been requested that live music, late-night refreshments, and alcohol sales be permitted from 10am – midnight, extending to 1.30am on Fridays and Saturdays.
