Community Board 11 issued its second letter in as many months at its monthly meeting this week recommending approval for a Bayside business to add a rooftop bar.

The owners of Fiamma 41, at 214-26 41st Ave., submitted an application last month asking for permission to create a rooftop deck and install an additional bar area.

The request comes on the heels of another application recently submitted by Bourbon Street, at 40-12 Bell Blvd., which received a letter from CB 11 at its April meeting recommending that the state Liquor Authority approve the plans.

If approved by the SLA, Bourbon Street and Fiamma 41 would be in a race to become Bayside’s first establishment to offer a rooftop bar area.

Just what Bayside needs are roof top bars now. Aren't there enough bars on the ground already.

I am not against bars, but this is stupid.
