Liquor licences are issued and managed by Liquor & Gaming NSW. Liquor licences are required by certain premises such as public entertainment venues, restaurants, clubs and other venues where alcohol is intended to be sold.
There are different types of liquor licences including:
- On Site Premises Licence;
- Package, Producer and Wholesale Licence;
- Hotel or Club Licence; and
- Limited Liquor Licence (single function).
Depending on the primary service offered by the business, there may be conditions attached to the issuing of a liquor licence. For example, restaurants must not serve alcohol to patrons unless a meal is ordered, unless an exemption to this requirement has been granted.
A liquor license imposes several obligations on the licensee and premises such as:
- A sign must be displayed at the premises with details of the licence issued;
- Serving alcohol only during the trading hours prescribed in the licence;
- Free drinking water must be made available;
- A sign must be displayed notifying the public if alcohol can be served in the absence of ordering a meal.
