Bayswa­ter’s first bou­tique wine store and small bar King Somm ex­pected to open in De­cem­ber.

BAYSWA­TER’S first bou­tique wine store and small bar King Somm is gear­ing up to open its doors at Christ­mas this year af­ter gain­ing a liquor li­cence ap­proval.

Mt Law­ley cou­ple and 13 King Wil­liam Street co-own­ers Matt Hayes and Si­mone Robe­son re­cently ob­tained ap­proval from the Depart­ment of Rac­ing, Gam­ing and Liquor for its amended ap­pli­ca­tion.

This comes af­ter Bayswa­ter Coun­cil ap­proved a de­vel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion in De­cem­ber 2017.

The store at the 100-yearold her­itage site will hold wine ed­u­ca­tion and event nights, in­clud­ing serv­ing of al­co­hol for events and tast­ings, will be open from 9am- 9pm on Wed­nes­days and 9am-11pm from Thurs­days to Sun­days.

The cafe and small bar will serve cof­fee and snack food dur­ing the day, with the abil­ity to serve al­co­hol and bar snacks, and op­er­ate as a small bar.

Ms Robe­son, who is an ar­chi­tect, said the next step was to lodge a build­ing per­mit.

“We are re­ally ex­cited and it’s great that the amended ap­pli­ca­tion was ap­proved in full – for the wine store and as­so­ci­ated bar and the court­yard which is pro­posed for the north-fac­ing rear of the prop­erty,” she said.

“The dream is (to open at) Christ­mas this year. We would love to be op­er­at­ing to get as much of the next sum­mer as pos­si­ble.”

Pop-up Open House Yoga will be mov­ing from the premises to a per­ma­nent home at 281 Guild­ford Road, May­lands.
