No love lost over noise and vomit.

Late-night venue: Casanova Mio could lose its licence over antisocial behaviour.

A TOWN-centre bar in Deal could lose its licence over accusations of late-night revellers vomiting and urinating in nearby residential streets.

Casanova Mio, which is opposite the town hall in the High Street, is a popular live-music venue and restaurant which can open until 2am on Friday and Saturday nights.

But people living in homes nearby are being kept up at night by noise from the bar and have discovered people being sick and relieving themselves on the quite streets of the seaside town.

A neighbour living in Middle Street, to the rear of the venue, who did not wish to be named, spoke of her problems with regular noise.

She said: “All the neighbours found they were staying open late most nights, until between 1am and 3 am.

“They close at the front at 11pm when they are supposed to, but they don’t close because the people come pouring out. The neighbours are getting upset.

“Why are they going on past the licensed hours? People are afraid that in the summer it is going to be very much worse.

“When the pubs are closed it is a place to go. It is a residential area, the hours are not right.”

An application for the licence to be reviewed has been received by Dover District Council.

The application says customers vomit, urinate and leave litter in the area, and it claims some residents can hear noise from inside the bar in their homes.

The Dover Express approached Casanova Mio for a comment on the licence review but had not received a response at the time of going to press.


Probably more of a night club than a public house, although I have also seen it with the title suggesting it was an Italian Restaurant, but this one appears to have closed around 2008 and popped up again as "Joe's Bar and Restaurant" shortly afterwards.
