Trump Tower nightclub liquor licence rejected by City of Vancouver

Dec 19 2017, 9:57 pm

Trump may have inexplicably steamrollered his way to victory in the Republican primaries, but Vancouver City Council is not so easily swayed. Especially when it comes to liquor.

On Wednesday morning, the city rejected the application for a liquor licence in the nightclub on the third floor of the hotel in the new Trump Tower.

Whilst the controversial name may have something to do with it, the 64 residents who opposed the licence cited noise, littering, drunk behaviour and traffic as concerns.


It’s unclear what will become of the Trump Tower nightclub plans now.

But maybe it wouldn’t have been that exciting anyway – there would certainly have been no drinks by the pool as we previously thought.

According to the application, nightclub is set to include a mezzanine, indoor pool deck and outdoor patio. Before 5 p.m., the indoor pool would be used for swimming and family use.

At 5 p.m., the area would convert to a bar/nightclub and the pool floor would rise up to become a multi-use area for dancing, fashion shows and product launches.

Meanwhile, liquor service would only have been permitted when the pool was covered and used as a dance floor.
