City Of Las Vegas Offers Qualified Businesses Opportunity To Deliver Alcohol Along With Food

Curbside Alcohol With Your Meal Pickup Also Possible For Qualified Restaurants

 

The city of Las Vegas can issue a Time-Limited Alcohol Delivery permit for 30 days, renewable based on the duration of the current restrictions on businesses, which will allow a business with an existing alcohol license (beer/wine, tavern, tavern-limited, etc.) and a food service license to deliver a meal with alcohol. The city has heard from business owners that this plan would be especially helpful, as their operations are being impacted due to closures/restrictions relating to the coronavirus.

 

Liquor Delivery with Meal Permit Rules/Conditions

  • Allows businesses with an existing alcohol license and food service to deliver alcohol with a meal;
  • Time-Limited Alcohol Delivery Permit is good for 30 days;
  • Renewable based on duration of the current restrictions on businesses;
  • Commercial locations only;
  • Can only sell type of alcohol that they are currently licensed for; beer/wine licensee may only offer beer and wine with their take-out meal;
  • Alcoholic beverages must be in the manufacturer’s sealed container;
  • $100 permit;
  • Liquor must be delivered by owner or employee of business; NO third-party delivery (i.e. Lyft, Uber, Amazon, etc.) allowed;
  • Individual delivering must verify the person accepting the delivery is 21-years-old or older;
  • Employee delivering MUST have an unexpired alcohol awareness card and a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police work card, no exceptions; and
  • Owners and key employees already registered with the city do not need a work card, but must still have an unexpired alcohol awareness card.

 

The city will waive the daily fee and only charge the processing fee of $100 per permit. This permit is separate from the curbside permit, which began to be offered by the city’s Business Licensing section March 26, 2020. Both of these permits can be applied for online at www.dscportal.lasvegasnevada.gov through the licensee’s online business license account. Questions can be emailed to license@lasvegasnevada.gov. Permits will be processed in one to two business days.
