However customers at Poolcrest in Kilburn High Road will be unable to buy drinks, food or listen to music on as the venue has been stripped of all its licences.

Earlier this year the club was served with a three-month closure order after police seized more than 140 bags of cannabis and £3,000 in cash in a second raid conducted in four months.

Last year, the club was stripped off its alcohol licence by Camden Council after police officers uncovered more than 100 bags of cannabis and £1,000 in cash during the earlier raid.

A police spokesman told the Times: “The venue can operate as a snooker club without the authority to conduct the sale of alcohol, late night refreshments or entertainment.”
