The management of a Boston pub have issued a statement expanding on their plans for the venue after reports it was going to be a ‘sexual entertainment venue’.
As reported, Brown’s Cocktail Bar had put in an application to propose change of use from drinking establishment (use class A4) to sexual entertainment venue (sui generis).
The Dolphin Lane bar, situated at the former Indian Queen and Three Kings pub, has applied to Boston Borough Council for the proposed change of use.
In a statement posted on the venue’s Facebook page The Management wrote: “Despite what has been written in the local press, Brown’s have no intention of turning itself into a sexual entertainment venue tomorrow.
“We have simply applied for a change of use from A4 (drinking establishments) to Sui Generis, which is better suited for our late night trade as we strive toward increasing the “club” side of our operations. We are sorry to disappoint!”
The Standard can confirm the original notice recieved stated: “Proposed change of use from drinking establishment (use class A4) to sexual entertainment venue (sui generis).”
The notice on the Boston Borough Council’s website now reads: “Proposed change of use from drinking establishment (use class A4) to lap dancing venue (sui generis).”
The application (Reference: B/16/0086), submitted by Phoenix Bars UK Limited, will be considered before the planning committee at a date yet to be decided.
