Government lifts booze ban December 10th to January 8th
Santo Domingo.- The Interior and Police Ministry said Thursday that there’ll be no restrictions on the sale of alcoholic beverages at bars, clubs, colmadones, restaurants and other businesses from December 10 to January 8, as part of the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
In a statement, Interior and Police said the provision was adopted after a consensus through consultations and meetings with representatives from those businesses. “The lifting of ban benefits music bands, combos and artistic groups so they can offer their services, which usually post higher demands in this Christmas period.”
It said however that to prevent incidents, the monitoring will increase for businesses that sell alcoholic beverages which its view pose a risk to citizens and public safety.
