No Liquor Sales After 9 PM
CARA Show How To Run Safely
Small Business and Worker's Rights Webinars TODAY
Dear Neighbors,

Mayor Lightfoot has announced a temporary ban on liquor sales after 9 p.m. The ban will remain until the state-wide stay at home order is lifted. Business owners who do not comply will face $500 fines and could find their liquor licenses revoked.

Here's a summary of the rules prohibiting alcohol sales after 9pm:

The City of Chicago issued Public Health Order 2020-05 which prohibits the sale of alcohol from any licensed establishment from 9 p.m. until the hour at which the licensee is permitted to begin alcohol sales the following day. This prohibition also applies to alcohol orders for pick-up and carry-out. Alcohol deliveries to retail customers must also cease daily at 9 p.m. This prohibition begins April 9, 2020.
  • This applies to all licensed alcohol retailers, including Tavern, Consumption on Premises – Incidental Activity, Package Goods and Caterer’s liquor licensees.
  • Establishments that are licensed to conduct other “essential business activities” as permitted under Governor Pritzker’s Stay-At-Home Order, such as food or medicine sales, may continue that activity after 9 p.m. provided that they cease the retail sale of alcohol.
  • Licensed establishments must display a sign reflecting the prohibition of alcohol sales after 9 p.m., which can be downloaded here.
