The Sweet Spot Beauty Bar in Kelowna is applying for a liquor licence so its customers can enjoy a cocktail with their pedicures.

“We expect our customers to be able to enjoy an alcoholic beverage while waiting or enjoy our primary services,” states a letter from Lenny Cabrera Holguin accompanying the application to the City asking for its support for its liquor licence application.

“These alcoholic beverages will be offered as an optional or complimentary service for our customers.”

Non-alcoholic beverages along with snacks such as wraps, sandwiches, chips and pastry goods will also be offered.

The Beauty Bar, which is located in The Shore on Lakeshore Road, offers “aesthetics services like manicure, pedicures, facial, eyelashes and other personal beauty services,” the letter states.

The business will have room for about 55 people, including staff.

While their regular business hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., they are asking for the licence to run from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.

“Our aesthetics staff will not participate in serving or consuming alcoholic beverages while their working hours,” the letter states. “The alcoholic beverages are going to be served by designated staff with Serve it Right certification.”

If the City supports the licence application it still needs to be approved by the provincial Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch.
