Jamming, occasional dancing now permitted at the Last Drop

By David F. Rooney

Council, meeting as a Committee of the Whole last Tuesday, has voted to amend the Last Drop’s liquor licence to permit performances by patrons including “small groups such as duos or trios with acoustic guitars and a fiddle or cello.”

The pub’s application for a change to its licence also permits it to “provide a dance floor for patrons that may want to participate in the form of dancing.”

A report from Laurie Donato, the City’s manager of development services, noted that ┬áthe alteration to the Last Drop’s liquor licence did not indicate the pub would be changed into a bar or nightclub. Most people who attended a public hearing on this issue indicated their support for the change.

Council will formally endorse its decision as a committee when it meets on Tuesday (Sept. 8).
