Kemistry update: more pols, CB6 pile on opposition; owner vows to move forward with some level of compromise

Park Slope Patch has an update on the planned Kemistry Lounge, a "club" (at least in neighbors' eyes) with bottle service on Flatbush Avenue near the Barclays Center.

Not only has Assemblywoman Joan Millman sent a letter to the State Liquor Authority (SLA) opposing a liquor license for the establishment, so too have Council Member Steve Levin and state Senator Velmanette Montgomery. And the full Community Board 6 has backed the opposition stated by its permits and licenses committee.

The sticking points include hours of operation, bottle service, and the nature of the back entrance on residential Prospect Place. Co-owner James Brown told Patch he'd compromise in part on hours and the entrance, but there was no word on bottle service, which neighbors fear would fuel unruly behavior.

The letters and votes are advisory; the SLA has the final decision.
