Hospital objects to licensed club in Cape Town City Bowl

Christiaan Barnard Hospital has joined others in objecting to a City Bowl club being granted a liquor licence.

Club 24, which has changed its name to Palm Royal, plans to relocate from Bree Street to Loop Street and has met with objections from the Community Policing Forum and the Central City Improvement District after it applied for a new licence.

The City of Cape Town has also ordered the club owners to install soundproofing.

Christaan Barnard Hospital spokeswoman Michelle Norris confirmed that the hospital had objected to Palm Royal's application, but refused to give details.

"I can't discuss it all. Our lawyers are dealing with it," said Norris.

Laurence Nathan, a liquor licensing consultant and attorney representing the club, said the reaction and objections to his clients application was normal.

"It's a normal application. They (objectors) think it's going to cause noise. We say it's not going to cause noise," said Nathan.

He acknowledged that the club had a history of being a noise nuisance, but this would be addressed at the new premises.

"Club 24 changed to Palm Royal and had a history of noise. But it's getting soundproofing," he said.
