Farleys’ licensing team recently acted for Aitor Arbello, Taoufik Mami, and Glenn Morris on the application for a premises licence for a soon-to-be opened bar on Clifton Street, Blackpool.

The licensing application for Saoko Cocktail Bar was granted with relative ease, with only a couple of minor representations from relevant authorities requiring a small amendment to the conditions we had volunteered with the application.  As the proposed amendments had no material impact on the manner in which our clients intended to run the premises, these were easily agreed to.

Aitor and Taoufik are well-established cocktail mixologists within Blackpool, most recently working at the popular sea front Beach House Bistro and Bar.

Saoko Cocktail Bar will be Blackpool’s first high-end fully seated cocktail bar offering table-only service. In a town that has seen much decline in the last few decades, there is an increasing business movement to offer accommodation and hospitality services that differ from the town’s traditional offering.

Graeme Booth, Farleys’ licensing specialist who acted on behalf of the owners, commented,

“It’s exciting to see the increase and shift in businesses being set up in Blackpool in an attempt to revive the town’s hospitality scene and put Blackpool back on the map as a destination for visitors, both domestically and internationally.

We wish our clients the best of luck and much success with their new venture.”

Aitor Arbello added,

Farleys Solicitors were extremely quick understanding our needs and timing. We 100% recommend for any people who wants to open new venues.
