Revolution Vodka Bar has applied to Sheffield City Council's licensing board to open until 2AM and serve alcohol until 1:30AM every day. However, residents living in the West One complex and Sheffield City Council environmental health officer Jon Round have objected to the plans on the grounds that the extra noise and extra hours would be unacceptable in a residential area.
Sheffield Council's planning board has ordered the Quarter, located on North Church Street in Sheffield city centre, to stop operating as a bar and nightclub. The venue, formerly known as Sola Bar, had staged lap dancing and naked female jelly wrestling during hours when children were allowed in under the terms of its licence. Quarter only has planning permission to operate as a restaurant and if it stages further events when people are charged to enter and no food is on sale, it faces enforcement action.
New managers Steve Goluf and Robert Allen said they are now running the Quarter as a bar and restaurant, with main meals served until 8PM and lighter food available until closing time.
We have added a basic listing for the Horse & Jockey pub in Thurgoland.

Chequers Out their successful outside catering business provided the three-course meal, which had some serious palettes to impress.
Commenting on these accolades, Jonathan Tindall said: "We're absolutely delighted that The Chequers has been yet again recognised at the food and drink awards where we were up against a very strong field. To be in the Michelin guide for a fourth year and to retain our AA Rosette for a fifth year has put the icing on the cake."
The Chequers Inn is no newcomer to the Derbyshire Food & Drink Awards, having won in the same category in 2005 and runners-up in 2006 and 2007.
The proprietors would like to thank everyone that voted for them for the award and to congratulate all their staff for helping to make the The Chequers Inn such an award-winning venue.
