TRURO - A new Prince Street business is looking for a lounge licence.
The Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board will hold a hearing this morning on the applications filed by Onyx Property Management.
My Best Friends Basement would be located at 515 Prince St. in the former Calico's Lounge property. The application, if approved, would allow the company to sell alcohol by the glass or open bottle to anyone 19 years old or older and to be consumed in the lounge.
The proposed lounge is 1,914 square feet and would accommodate 159 patrons.
The applicant is proposing live, non-amplified and amplified entertainment with a dance floor. The application says the music would be rock and karaoke.
The hours of operation would be from 10 a.m. until 2 a.m. Monday to Saturday and opening Sunday at noon until 2 a.m.
Another hearing will be held under a separate application for an eating establishment liquor licence. The applicant has applied to use the eating establishment seating area, which measures 547 square feet and can accommodate 45 patrons, as a lounge after 9 p.m.
The hearing will be held at the Holiday Inn, 437 Prince St., at 10 a.m.

    Finally,a new bar for truro,could be a nice change of pace from Rustlers,which is starting to feel like a preschool,for those of us who arent 19 anymore,and the engine room,which seems to be like a meeting place fpr those aged 40 and up looking for a date.Maybe there will be a nice in between at this place.

    I wouldn't really call the Room a 40 plus singles club either??!!??
    Did anyone go to Calico's when it was there? Why does the guy who bought this have to fight for a liquor license, the place has been a licensed establishment for years.

    Country girl...when was the last time you have been to the engine Room? Its just as a young crowd as Chevys till they head to chevys and its def not all over 40 looking for a date.

    A New bar? That bar has been there forever! The person that owns it use to work at the Engine Room for yrs. So if you think you are going to see something new, it's not going to happen. It's, Truro, and unless you build a new establishment, with new owners, new views & idea's, nothing will change. I can almost guarantee you, it will be exactly the same way it has been for yrs, but if you like that, great, but it won't be different.
    Also, if it wasn't for the 40yr olds and up, the Engine Room would have changed staff a million times like Rustlers has. 40'yr olds are the ones who tip big and keep the bar staff wanting to come back to work. It's not the easiest career in the world! Oh and as far as dates go, isn't that what bars are for? To meet new and interesting people? Truro period needs a facelift..from age 19-90..having fun doesn't come with an age. Society may try and make you believe it does, but it doesn't!
