Bars get green light for New Year extensions

| 06/12/2010

(CNS): Cayman’s Liquor Licensing Board Chairman Mitchell Welds has granted permission for all current liquor licence holders to extend their opening hours on New Year’s Eve. As is customary except when the holiday falls on a Saturday (this year its a Friday) bars, restaurants and clubs are permitted to open a for an extra hour of business. All seven categories of liquor licensees are permitted to add on the hour beyond the regular closing time specified on their licences, Welds said. Licence stipulations, however, remain unchanged. “Liquor sales and playing of music should stop during the last ten minutes of permitted opening hours,” Welds explained. “Also, all customers must vacate the premises before closing time.”

The LLB will also be meeting this Thursday for its regular quarterly session but this time aside from discussing changes, the board will here new applications as a result of a short lifting of the existing moratorium on liquor license numbers.
