Hotel- General Bar (Small Bar Licence)

14 Apr Posted by in What We Offer | Comments Off

A Small Bar Licence is suited to venue operators who want to operate a bar but do not want to operate gaming machines or offer takeaway liquor sales. For premises to be made the subject of a Small Bar Licence, the primary purpose of the premises must be that of selling liquor (i.e. operating as a bar).

The Small Bar Licence recognises that late night venues have a role to play in the cultural and social life of Sydney. If you wish to operate a venue aimed at more sophisticated patrons who do not wish to frequent hotel environs, then a Small Bar Licence ought to be considered.

When contemplating a Small Bar Licence application attention must be given to the alternative option, an On-premises licence (restaurant) with Primary service authorisation. In short, both licences permit the consumption of liquor without a meal; however, an On-premises licence (restaurant) with Primary service authorisation is more suited to premises where the primary purpose of the business will involve preparing and serving substantial meals.

The Small Bar Licence epitomises everything good about Sydney. If you want to conduct a small bar that is recognised for a sophisticated drinking culture, speak to us. Not only can we advise you on the Small Bar Licence application, but also the local government and planning laws for small bars.

Since the commencement of the Small Bar legislation more and more applications have been approved. Contact us and profit from our experience.
