Plans show the building will be renovated to include a kitchen, bar, dance floor, band room, stage and sound-locked entry.

Council documents showed a sound lock entrance design would ensure the noise generated would not be excessive for the area.

They also showed the code assessable development was poised to complement the entertainment and dining precinct of the Ocean St area, add "additional, complementary commercial activity" in the entertainment precinct and "contribute to the night-life" of the region.

The hotel would perate five days a week at various hours, opening the earliest at 11am and closing the latest at 3am.

It would be closed Monday to Tuesday.

Eleven declined to comment until they had "all their ducks in a row" and said the company planned to "make a song and dance" when the time is right.
