Islington SEV opposed by ‘snobs’

Interesting article showing how classed notions of respectability can inflect discussion about licensing of SEVs. I’ll update with outcome imminently.

UPDATE: The licence was granted, though the applicant has indicated the premise may shut next year once planned redevelopment of the bar has gone ahead. The redevelopment of King’s Cross was noted by objectors and the media, with some noting that the area is ‘no longer a red light district’.
