Docks Back On The Scene

It was big news last July when the Docks Nightclub had their liquor license revoked because of noise complaints. Right on the water and close to Toronto Island residents, the nightclub's problems with their neighbours were inevitable, or so you'd think. While a judge had allowed the club to continue serving drinks, the management spent millions outfitting the waterfront property with noise-control systems hoping to make good with the party-poopers next door.

When it all went down last summer the club was warned they could have their license pulled at a moment's notice and weren't allowed any outdoor concerts, bad news for a venue that holds as many as 50 in a summer season. Since then, however, the club has only received two complaints. I guess that's good enough to impress the judge. Today, the entertainment complex won an Appeal Court decision to have their liquor license reinstated. Though the Docks still has another hearing in front of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission, it sounds like they've got good news to celebrate for now.
