Meraki Restaurants Ltd has applied to Westminster Council for a variation of their premises licence at 80-82 Great Titchfield Street (including 30 Foley Street) Fitzrovia.

The application seeks to extend the hours of licensable activities — including the sale of alcohol, live music, and late night refreshment — to 3am the following morning from Monday to Saturday in part of the ground floor and basement located in the 30 Foley Street part of the premises.

In this part of the premises the “restaurant condition” does not apply — the licensee can serve alcohol to be consumed by patrons without them taking a table meal.

According to the application the closing hours would become 3.30am the following morning from Monday to Saturday, and on Sundays prior to a bank holiday.
