Clubbers in Falkirk will finally be able to have chips in the wee small hours after a night club was granted a hot food licence.
The nightclub, owned by Stirling-based entertainment group CLG, applied to be able to sell snacks until 3.30 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 30 minutes after their alcohol licence finishes.
Speaking at the meeting Councillor Allyson Black said: “I’m concerned that people will mill around even longer. If the alcohol licence finishes at 3 a.m., so should the food.”
The venue will transform a cloakroom into a kitchen and operate a clean-up programme in the street outside to ensure clubbers don’t leave a mess. Stewards will police the take away area and ensure customers behave.
City’s solicitor Dick Sandeman said: “Giving customers food will only help with the effects of the alcohol and be a benefit.”
Currently hot food cannot be served in the area after 1.30 a.m. but the council are looking at these rules and potentially extending the hours.
Only nightclub patrons will be able to purchase the food in City, people will not be admitted to soely buy a snack.
