GL Secure Licence for new Whisky Bar

Gregg Latchams has advised the award winning team behind Black Rock Whisky Bar in London in obtaining their first alcohol licence in Bristol.

Ewen Macgregor was instructed by Tom Aske and Tristan Stephenson, the brains behind Black Rock, Fluid Movement, Sack and Surfside Café and Bar to obtain an alcohol licence for the new venture in the centre of Bristol.

Ewen commented:

“I was delighted to have been instructed by such highly respected operators as Tom and Tristan to obtain the alcohol licence for new premises in Bristol. I am pleased that we have been able to secure the licence on terms that were acceptable to the business, particularly as the premises fall within the city centre cumulative impact area. I am sure that the operation will be another well regarded addition to the night time offer in Bristol”

Tom Aske, director of Black Rock Whisky Limited added:

“We are really grateful to Gregg Latchams for assisting us in obtaining the licence. This was the first time that we have taken on a project where the premises did not have an existing licence. Ewens knowledge of the local market place and his contacts with the responsible authorities within Bristol was invaluable in making the process as smooth as possible. We are very much looking forward to opening Black Rock in Bristol, and being part of the thriving night time economy in the city”.

Black Rock has been voted the best specialist bar in the Class Bar Wards for the pas two years, and nominated again at the 2019 awards which are due to take place on the 12 February.
