Pool bar planned late at night for busy Hereford Street
A new, pool-focused sports bar is planned in the heart of Hereford.
Novello’s planned pool bar and sports loft – which will be above The Works stationery store in Commercial Street – will be a “poolside venue with a bar featuring occasional live music and recorded music”, according to a license application from John Meredith and Danny Gagg. .
It will also have an outdoor smoking area with two tables and up to eight chairs “so people can sit down for a drink,” although drinks won’t be served here, the app says.
It seeks permission to broadcast live music until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights as well as holiday Sundays and Mondays and Christmas Eve, and until 2 a.m. on New Year’s Eve from 11 p.m. 2am.
It also asks for permission to play recorded music and serve alcohol and “late night refreshments” until late each day.
Recent photos on the venue’s newly created Facebook page show that it’s still undergoing renovations inside.
The premises, formerly The Loft bar and nightclub, share Commercial Street access with Gilbies Bar & Bistro, which continues to trade as before.
Comments on the license application can be made until December 13.
