Council approves temporary hours extension for Element events

At the Jan. 21 Castlegar City Council meeting, the Element Club Bar and Grill was granted two temporary changes to their liquor license.

At the Jan. 21 Castlegar City Council meeting, the Element Club Bar and Grill was granted two temporary changes to their liquor license.

The club will be allowed to stay open for an extra hour on Friday, Feb. 15 and Saturday, June 1, from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m.

“They wanted to extend their hours on Feb. 15 and June 1,” said councillor Sue Heaton-Sherstobitoff. “They need that so it’s profitable for them. The RCMP are fine with it. They’ll have enough resources on staff those days. So we voted in favour of those extensions.”

Feb. 15 is the Element’s special night of DJ’s, including two of which were headliners from Shambhala last summer.

On June 1, the Element will once again be hosting the official Sunfest party.

“This will be the final night of our seventh anniversary weekend which will feature a very popular top 40 band that has played here on many occasions,” said Element owner Florio Vassilakakis in his request to the city. “We are partnering again with Castlegar Slo-Pitch to help them in their fundraising. In order to make this event as successful as possible, we would be very appreciative of the opportunity to extend our hours of operation for the night until 3 a.m.”
