Change to Liquor Licensing Regulations

February 6, 2017

Cuts Red Tape for Restaurants!

On January 24, the Honourable Mark Furey, Minister of Service Nova Scotia announced changes to the Nova Scotia liquor licensing regulations. With these new regulations restaurant patrons will be able to order up to two alcoholic drinks without ordering food. Until now, customers had to order food to be served an alcoholic drink or move to the restaurant’s designated lounge area, if one existed. This change if effective immediately. This positive and sensible change will put our restaurants on a more even playing field, while still addressing the concerns of the residents who live nearby. Thanks to MLA Joachim Stroink, and everyone else who helped make this happen. It is a great victory for the restaurants on Quinpool Road.
