Many New Orleans business owners consider a liquor license essential to running a popular and profitable enterprise. Bars, restaurants, hotels, event venues, movie theaters, and more all benefit from offering the option to purchase alcohol. However, the application process can be tedious, and many don’t know where to start.
Selling alcohol in Louisiana requires both State and local Alcoholic Beverage Outlet (ABO) Permits. To acquire these permits, local laws require Department of Health and Hospitals approval, Louisiana State Fire Marshal approval, an Occupational License and approval to sell alcohol from the Parish Bureau of Revenue, and approval from the Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control (ATC), each step requiring various forms and documentation.
With so many steps in the application process, it can be easy to make mistakes, forget requirements, and do unnecessary work. Let an experienced professional take care of your alcoholic beverage permitting needs. Save time and energy that you can devote to making your business flourish.
The cost of a liquor license in New Orleans starts at $2,745 for all State and local application fees and expenses.
