What's New


On June 18, 2014 the Las Vegas City Council updated the Las Vegas Municipal Code (Ordinance Number 6329) to increase civil penalties for violations of LVMC 6.50, clarifying that the director may suspend an alcoholic beverage license on an administrative basis under certain circumstances and adding a new condition to clarify that a licensee’s violation, or knowingly permitting an employee to violate a condition of an alcoholic beverage license, is a misdemeanor.  The update also creates a zone in the downtown area where the consumption of alcoholic beverages in glass or metal containers is prohibited and the possession of open alcoholic beverages in original packaging is prohibited.  The update also requires that alcoholic beverages bought at a package liquor or off-sale establishment within the pedestrian mall be placed in a bag prior to the customer leaving the establishment.
