An application has been made to Camden Council for a major variation of a premises licence to allow later hours at 1947 London Restaurant and Bar, which is located in the basement of 33 Charlotte Street and entered from Rathbone Street.

Currently the premises has a licence for the sale of alcohol for consumption on and off the premises until midnight from Monday to Saturday, and until 11.30pm on Sunday; and to serve late night refreshment until 12.30am Monday to Saturday, and midnight on Sunday.

They are now seeking to extend the hours for the sale of alcohol until 1am from Monday to Wednesday, 1.30am Thursday to Saturday; and for the sale of late night refreshment until 1.30am Monday to Wednesday, and 2am from Thursday to Saturday.

The existing licence also has a condition that restricts the sale of alcohol until midnight Monday to Saturday and 11.30pm on Sundays. The applicant is seeking to remove this condition.

To view the details of the application and make a comment, search Camden’s public licensing register for the following reference:

A public consultation on the application is open until 10 March 2023.

Residents in Camden may also contact the Charlotte Street Association for help and advice in responding to planning and licensing applications.

They are from the Police Authority, responsible authority, Licensing Authority, responsible authority, Environmental Health, responsible authority, two from local resident associations and fourteen from local residents and business.
