Remember the lawsuit threat from yesterday?
Let’s take a look at the actual L&I Refusal from Dispoto Realty and what they told the ZBA their property is going to be:
PERMIT/ CERTIFICATE IS FOR NIGHT CLUB AS DEFINED IN SECTION 14-102 (80) WITH ACCESSORY OFFICE, PREPARATION AND SERVING OF FOOD FOR TAKE OUT AND RETAIL SALE OF MALT BEVERAGES FOR TAKE OUT (NO ACTIVITIES AS DEFINED IN SECTION 14-1605 OF PHILADELPHIA ZONING CODE) ON 1ST THRU 3RD FLOORS IN AN EXISTING STRUCTURE.
In case we’re not clear on what 14-102 of the Philadelphia Code is when it defines a night club, it is this:
(74) Night Club. A use engaged in the preparation and retail sale of food and/or beverages which includes live entertainment, a disc jockey or a self-contained sound system providing music; with or without amplified sound and which may or may not provide for dancing by guests and patrons;
Because the zoning applicant told the City of Philadelphia that this is a night club, I guess it must be a night club. Since the same applicant also is going on community message boards and stating that among its many purposes, one is for baby showers, I guess it’s time to dub this establishment as “The Kensington Baby Shower Night Club.”
That is all.
