The owners of the Dogstar pub, Antic London, have applied for planning permission to open another venue in the centre of Brixton, in the historic Bon Marché centre, in Ferndale Road.
The planning application, spotted by the Brixton Society last week, would see existing offices at the back of the Bon Marché centre, with a new entrance built on Nursery Road. The application was made by “Antic Ltd” and, according to the online application the neighbour consultation expiry date was January 1.
A design statement, for a venue called “Szaban in March” and submitted in December, says: “The amount of work proposed involves a series of physical changes to the layout as well as alterations to the Nursery Road façade in order to convert the space into a modern bar and restaurant venue.”
It continues: “The ground floor is to be used as the more informal bar area whilst the lower ground floor is proposed as the dining room for the restaurant which will serve a range of cold gastro-pub style foods.”
The news follows the report on Brixton Blog yesterday about two new Antic venues to open in early 2013.
