Dance Floor Bid for Johnston Road in White Rock Likened to Nightclub


White Rock council has taken the suggestion of Coun. Bill Lawrence to send an application for a proposed liquor-license amendment back to city staff – to see if a compromise can be reached between the business owner and surrounding uptown condo residents.

“We don’t want to put White Rock in the no-fun zone,” Lawrence said following a public hearing Monday evening.

The application, for the Bin 101 Wine and Tapas Bar at 1434 Johnston Rd., would amend the existing license to allow patron participation entertainment – in this case a 10-metre-by-10-metre dance floor – and extend the potential hours of liquor service to 1 a.m. seven days a week (although dancing, under regulations, would only be permitted until midnight except on New Year’s Eve).
