Burnaby council rejects dance floor-liquor licence change

Burnaby council has turned down an application by James Street Cafe and Grill to amend its food-primary liquor licence to allow patron participation entertainment.

The proposal for the restaurant at 3819 Canada Way would have seen the installation of a 400-square-foot dance floor to accommodate entertainment with live or DJ music.

According to a city staff report, the proposed dance floor, at 17 per cent of the public dining area, is "disproportionately large" and "would be similar in scale to what would be expected at a banquet facility or liquor primary-club establishment." It also noted it would create potential noise-related concerns with the nearby residential area.
