Lifting of the curfew for selling alcoholic beverages

The Ministry of Interior and Police announced the lifting of the curfew for selling alcoholic beverages. As of Monday, 11 December 2017, and all the way through 7 January 2018, bars, discotheques and “colmadones”, liquor stores and restaurants are free to sell alcoholic beverages 24/7. The Ministry says that the measure is in place given that the businesses argue this is their time for max sales of the year.

At the same time, the Ministry said that to prevent and avoid actions affecting safety and public order, surveillance at these businesses is being increased. The Ministry says that all applicable laws, especially those that prohibit the entry of minors to bars and sale of alcoholic beverages to minors will be strictly enforced. In addition the authorities will be vigilant concerning banning people with firearms or knives entering these establishments. The Ministry also warned that statutes concerning noise control will be enforced.
