Zazou Salon & Academy, located in Lynn Valley Village (aka at the Lynn Valley Library) has applied for a liquor licence. (Disclaimer: I'm a sometimes customer, and really like the people there, their strong community involvement, and their impressive charitable work.) I'm assuming that they plan on offering adult customers a beer or a glass of wine while they get a cut or colour. I don't think they plan on competing with the Black Bear or Browns for the Friday night hockey game knock back a dozen brews crowd.
I say "I assume" because you would be hard pressed to find any more information, especially on the District of North Vancouver web site.
You'll recall that allowing some businesses like hair salons to serve liquor was one of the pre-election goodies doled out by ex-Premier Christy Clark. Even though Christy has now disappeared back to her riding... um... Point Grey, the new regulations remain.
In many ways Zazou is probably a perfect business to try out this new licencing regime. They're unique, they're local, and they always have been able to balance a sense of fun with the serious work of running a successful business.
In the meantime, I'm looking forward to a few Council meetings that will rival chickens for entertainment.
Edit: the application is expected to come before Council in September.
Added: Here's the notice from the District sent to local businesses.
