Bars to open late for New Year frolics

| 29/12/2008

(CNS): With New Year’s Eve falling on a Wednesday night this year Cayman liquor licensee’s don’t have to worry about falling foul of the music and dance law for the 2009 celebrations and will be able to open late. The Liquor Licensing Board said this week that valid liquor license holders are allowed to remain open for one hour beyond their regular permitted time on New Year’s Eve.

The board said that for night clubs, this extension only applies to liquor sales as music and dancing must end at the normal time of 3:00 am. The Board also said it wanted to remind all liquor licence holders that the sale of liquor and the playing of music should still cease during the last ten minutes of permitted opening hours, and all patrons must vacate premises before the closing hour. For further information licensees and members of the public may contact Marva Scott at the Liquor Licensing Office on 946-5446 ext. 5

    I would have thought that the Liquor Licensing Board would have requested that establishments that hold liquor licenses cease the sale of liquor at 3:00am and extend the music and dancing until 4:00am.

    I think the RCIPS will have enough work to do that night and maybe the extension of music and dancing may help "sober up" a few party goers. Stay safe Cayman, don’t drink and drive.
