Dorchester Bar Applies For 4am License


10:29am 9th April 2014

A Dorchester bar will find out this Friday whether they'll be allowed to stay open until 4am.

Alex Ford and his wife Nikki, who used to run the Blue Vinny in Puddletown, are the new owners of Four D in Trinity Street.

They recently had 180 people at the venue for a charity event who all had to leave by 1am.

Alex thinks a later license would stop that from happening and would be less of a headache to the Police:

" I think they were more worried about all those people leaving at 1am rather than in dribs and drabs afterwards.  It doesn't mean we would stay open until 4am every weekend - it just depends on how busy it is really."

"We took a good reputation from the Blue Vinny, we'd like to bring that to Dorchester.  We've got 16 CCTV cameras, air conditioning so no windows have to be open in summer, and we've also specifically picked our door staff."

West Dorset District Council's Licensing Committee will consider the application on Friday.
