The City of Las Vegas says it is launching a plan that would allow restaurants providing curbside meals to also sell alcohol with those meals.
The city will issue an “Alcohol Time-Limited Permit” for 30 days, renewable based on the duration of the coronavirus situation, which will allow a business with an existing alcohol license (beer/wine, tavern, tavern-limited, etc.) and a food service license to do curbside pickup of alcohol with a meal.
These commercial locations will only be able to sell the types of alcohol that they are currently licensed for. For example, a beer/wine licensee may only offer beer and wine with their take-out meals, and alcohol must be in the manufacturer’s sealed container.
The city will waive the daily fee and only charge the processing fee of $100 per permit.
A city of Las Vegas business can apply for the permit through its online business license account. Questions can be emailed to email@example.com. Permits will be processed in one to two business days.
The city says it has heard from business owners that this plan would be especially helpful as their operations are being impacted due to closures relating to the coronavirus.
Henderson to Also Temporarily Allow Restaurants to Sell Alcohol Curbside
Due to the ongoing closure to the public of dine-in options at restaurants and other foodservice establishments, the City of Henderson will temporarily allow curbside alcohol service for certain business license classifications.
As of 5 PM on March 26th until the declared end of the closure of non-essential businesses or for the next 30 days, whichever occurs first, any establishment holding a restaurant with bar, tavern, beer/wine on-sale, full-liquor on-sale or brewery license may serve beer/wine/spirits/liquor in conjunction with meals being picked up curbside at the establishment.
Henderson representatives also said there are no fees for the time-limited liquor permit.
Establishments choosing to serve alcoholic beverages with a take-out meal must email the city of Henderson Business Operations Division at FILicensedivision@cityofhenderson.com.
The email must include the business name and address, current city of Henderson’s business license number, and the contact phone number for the owner or key employee.
