Residents living close to Birmingham's Broad Street are to step up their campaign against all-night drinking.
An official objection has been lodged by occupants of flats in Berkley Street to plans by J D Wetherspoon to serve alcohol at the Solomon Cutler pub from 7am until 4am seven nights a week.
Earlier this week Berkley Court residents were banned by the city council from objecting to Wetherspoon's application to open the Figure of Eight pub until 3am.
Although Berkley Court is only 150 yards from the Figure of Eight, the council ruled that residents did not live in the immediate vicinity and did not qualify under the Licensing Act 2003 as objectors. The application was granted.
Berkley Court residents' spokesman Alan Woodfield said all-night drinking would increase the already " intolerable" amount of noise from drunken revellers in the early hours. People often used the entrance to flats as public toilets and sound systems in parked cars were so loud that windows vibrated, he added.
The Solomon Cutler application will be considered next Wednesday.
Mr Woodfield expects to have his objection overruled since the pub is slightly further away than the Figure of Eight but he said he would not give up.
Mr Woodfield said: "We are almost certain to appeal to the magistrates' court against the council decision to approve the Figure of Eight application. Residents are astonished that our views have been so summarily dismissed."
