Subject: The Brighton Cocktail Company Ltd proposed variation

SC CON END 28.06.2023 VALID PPN (A)

The Brighton Cocktail Company Ltd at 87-93 Dyke Road have applied to extend their opening hours to be able to open at 10am on a Sunday morning.

This bar has a garden which backs on to residential gardens and the level of noise pollution it generates is already incredibly loud during the afternoons and evenings at weekends.

The noise and music often goes on past 10:00pm making it very difficult to get children to sleep or for people to enjoy any peace in their gardens.

Many pubs in Brighton have a curfew and people are told to move inside by 10:00 PM but this does not seem happen with this bar.

The thought that they will be able to open from 10:00 AM on a Sunday morning and we will have to endure the noise all day and all evening is really unacceptable.

For these reasons we object to this proposed variation in the strongest possible terms.

I would like to object to the application that the Brighton Cocktail Company are making to extend their opening hours.

I live right Redacted. The reason for my objection is because of the amount of  noise that comes from the bar and their garden and the impact this has on myself and my family. Not only does the noise stop us from using our garden whenever the weather is nice, but we also have to close all our windows otherwise we hear the noise (shouting and music they play from speakers in the garden) which  infiltrates into our home especially on  Saturday  and Friday afternoons and evenings.I also work from home and this can effect my work. We have never experienced such noise with any of the previous tenants.

I recently sent them a polite email asking if they could keep the noise down but I never received a response and the noise seems to have got louder. The other local businesses seem to respect that this is a residential area but the Brighton Cocktail Company seem to not care at all.

Yours sincerely

To Whom It May Concern

 I would like to lodge an objection to the application for an extension to the licensing hours at 87-93 Dyke Rd  that was lodged on 1 June 2023

As a resident REDACTED, we have had our evenings ruined by the constant hum of air conditioning units, loud music, cigarette smoke, take away containers thrown over the wall and shouted conversations .

We do not need more of the same in the mornings

Subject: Statement of objection to licence extension re Brighton Cocktail Company

Dear Regulatory Services Manager

Brighton Cocktail Company premises licence application

We are Redacted.

We note the application for variation of a premises licence by Brighton Cocktail Co Limited.

We wish to register our objection to this proposed variation.

The Brighton Cocktail Company premises includes a garden which is used by guests, as we understand it, all day. These guests generate, on occasion, a lot of noise. The noise is exacerbated due to reflection off the surrounding walls in the neighbourhood.

We are concerned that extending opening hours on Sunday to commence at 10:00 AM instead of 12 noon will create further substantial noise in the area.


We would in particular be concerned that ‘bottomless brunches‘ or similar events involving the consumption of alcohol would commence at 10:00 AM on a Sunday morning in a residential neighbourhood.

If it is the intention that the  application for an extended licence be granted, we request that the garden not be used.

We would also request that steps be taken to reduce the noise currently coming from the premises’ garden, and consideration be given to noise conditions attaching to the current licence.

The application includes an application to sell alcohol ‘online and via mail order’. We assume this doesn’t permit premises to get around licensing laws that would otherwise apply in terms of sale and/or consumption of such alcohol on the premises. i.e. customers couldn’t order alcohol online and have it delivered to them for consumption at the premises.

Thank you.

To whomever it may concern,

I would like to voice my concern, both for myself and my family, about the proposed license extension for the Brighton Cocktail Company (87-93 Dyke Road, BN1 3JE).

The reason for this is due to a very noticeable increase in noise pollution in the evenings (most notably at weekend). The property in question has opened a beer garden, and this has, for two weekends in a row (I assume since opening), kept myself and my family awake with loud shouting and cheering. REDACTED

After having spoken to a fair few neighbours whose properties back onto the aforementioned cocktail bar, I know the sentiment to not extend the license is strong. 

The noise pollution from the new bar is very invasive and loud - and certainly not welcome. I understand that a certain amount of noise pollution from any company (or private dwelling) is to be expected, especially in a central part of the city, but the level of noise coming from the bar is unacceptable, in my view. 

Thank-you for your consideration.

Kind regards
