In Bondi Beach NSW on “Lox Stock & Barrel -...” at 140 Glenayr Ave, Bondi Beach 2026:

Shane Birges commented

There were issues at this premises with alcohol on many occasions previously and it would make things worse in my opinion if license was granted. Having lived in the same building as a tenant previously, there were many issues with the use of the backyard where alcohol was consumed and giving permission to have on-premises license would mean that alcohol would be available at all times that the restaurant would be open and I bet that the opening hours of the restaurant would be extended once the alcohol license is granted. This is not good news story for the residence in the area.

Nearly every venue in Bondi has alcohol license and more are seeking approvals every day, very few being rejected, if anyone of the authorities are serious about cutting down the overwhelming alcohol related problems in the area there MUST NOT be any more licenses issued. Speakeasy Wine Bar on the other side of the building already has people drinking alcohol sitting on the public bench and standing and smoking at the entrance of the building on Curlewis Street side, bottles and glass left all over the place. The same scenario will take place at 140 Glenayre Ave.

It would be in the interest of NSW Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing to visit the premises and the backyard where patrons used to sit in front of hygienic toilets and consumed food and alcohol where the nice aroma flows from the garbage bins that came to serve these patrons. The noise was another one of the issues that neighbours had to put up with and all this will be made permanent once the license is issued. Forget about putting conditions with the license they are not worth the paper they are written on. There have been examples of non-compliance of conditions.

I wonder how many people next door and the surrounding areas are aware of this happening.
