licence to sell alcohol

A nice family hotel in a residential area in Jebal Amman was recently sold and renovated and a licence to sell alcohol in a pub on the premises was obtained. Then hell started for the neighbours. Drunken people shouting and screaming late at night with cars hooting their horns and even couples making out at a next door's premises under their bedroom window!!Complaints, calls to the police and threats to take it to the governor has got apologies but no answers.

Who is in charge of giving licences to sell alcohol and do they ever take into account the premises and where they are situated? Judging by this particular example they obviously don't. T

I'm not in Amman now and very curious to know, could you msg it to me at least? I bet you meant la calle.

I believe I know the place, but I also recall the previous owners had an alcohol licence??? the problems you refer to are not necessarily the problem of who get's a licence and where, but how that responsibility is controlled by the holders of said licence, and if they are held accountable. Again it is a problem of enforcement of the rule of law, and obviously in this case, family rules ok! J

ok, I give in!! It is the Hisham Hotel. They may have had a liquor licence before but they did not have a pub. Maybe they had a bar but that is a bit different. T
