Bristol law firm Gregg Latchams secured the licence for the exciting new cocktail bar that has recently opened in Cotham Hill.
The Crying Wolf, the new premises from the owner of the award-winning Dark Horse bar in Bath provide seasonal drinks with emphasis on the finest produce the South West has to offer. Located near popular foodie hotspots Pasta Loco and Bellita, the bar can accommodate just under 100 people over two storeys, with each storey providing its own unique design and atmosphere.
The licensing team, led by Ewen Macgregor, faced a challenging application process, with the previous licence having expired and the premises located in a cumulative impact area within Bristol. After engaging with the local residents, and residents’ associations, and agreeing conditions with the responsible authorities, the application was granted without a hearing, paving the way for what promises to be a very interesting new addition to the Bristol night time economy.
Ewen Macgregor, head of Regulatory & Licensing says:
“We were delighted to have been instructed by Louis and to have secured a new licence for him in Bristol. Louis very wisely sought to engage with the local residents and residents’ associations prior to, and during the consultation period. We wish Louis and his team all the very best for the future”
Owner Louis Lewis-Smith said: “We are delighted to have opened our new venture in Bristol. Ewen has helped me through the successful process of getting a license for Crying Wolf on Cotham hill. It’s been fantastic working with him and Gregg Latchams, with great communication and helpful advice throughout the process. License applications can be a stressful experience especially with so many other things to focus on when opening a venue. Ewen has made the process easy and stress-free. I look forward to working with him again on future projects and would heartily recommend Gregg Latchams to others within the food drink and hospitality sector”
