Bars, Cafes And Restaurants Are Now Allowed To Sell Takeaway Alcohol In SA

Mar 25, 2020


The SA government has introduced new legislation allowing the state’s restaurants and cafes to sell takeaway alcohol during the COVID-19 crisis.

According to 7 News:

Under the bill, small bars and local clubs with pre-existing licences would be allowed to sell take-away alcohol for the first time...

Attorney-General Vickie Chapman announced the temporary move on Wednesday in a bid to support businesses decimated by sweeping new social distancing regulations.

Purchases will be limited to two bottles of wine, or one bottle of wine and a six-pack of beer, cider or pre-mixed spirits.

Under the legislation, community clubs will also be able to sell take-away liquor to club members.
