The application for a liquor licence was approved despite objections by police and residents. The tavern will be on the ground floor of the four-star Medina Vibe Hotel and will cater for over-25s. It will be run by Craft Beer Australia. The company is owned by hotelier Darren Lynch who is also opening an Italian restaurant at the waterfront. The as-yet unnamed tavern will sell boutique beers and have a restaurant, television screens and Keno. Residents from three apartment blocks overlooking the new tavern Bridgeport, Arkaba and LEsperance said they feared the bar would create noise and traffic. Prominent businessman Frazer Henry was among the protesters. Sergeant Anthony Deutrom told the three-day licensing hearing that he feared police would be stretched if they were forced to keep an eye on another pub. He said the main concern was the 2am closing time. Waterfront chairman Paul Tyrrell said a tavern was always intended to be part of the development. Mr Lynch said the tavern would be sophisticated. It would cater for families during the day and the over-25 market at night. There is no intention to chase the youth market, he told the hearing. The Licensing Commission said the bar must be a blend of classic and comfortable Aussie pub. It can provide live or pre-recorded music inside the venue, but not in the alfresco area. The indoor area can open from 10am until 2am and the outdoor area until 1am. Crowds flock to final market FRILLING: Grae Adams (7) with his foam frilly at the final Berry Springs market for 2009. Picture: STUART WALMSLEY THE steamy conditions could not keep the crowds away from the final Berry Springs markets of the year. Thirty stalls of arts and crafts lured in families for a day of fun at the Berry Springs reserve. Co-founders Miriam Cleary and Littleflower Hill, both from Darwin River, started the markets in January to bring the rural community together. It was a great day. I think it went really well, Ms Hill said. The kids had heaps of fun. Theres not a lot to do down here, its a good excuse to get everyone together for a cup of tea and a catch up and show off local work. Kerrin Miller is heavily involved in the organising of the markets and said it was a great family day. The markets are held on the last Sunday of every month. LAUREN CRAWLEY
