New Bill To Permit Alcohol Consumption in Designated Areas in California

A proposed legislation in California may permit individuals to consume alcohol in designated “entertainment zones” such as sidewalks and other public areas.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill last year that permitted San Francisco city and county to establish specific areas for consuming alcoholic beverages during special events on public streets, sidewalks, or rights-of-way.

The present version of the new bill would extend this authority to all municipalities and counties.

Senator Scott Wiener emphasized that revitalizing public activity is crucial for the economic resurgence of cities around California as he proposed Senate Bill 969. By establishing Entertainment Zones, we are providing an incentive for individuals to return to regions where economic recovery has been sluggish, while also generating a crucial new source of income for bars and restaurants.

The measure eliminates the need for special events or further authorization from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

The measure permits beer manufacturers, wine growers, and other alcohol vendors to enable customers to leave the premises where the drink was supplied, as long as they exit into the authorized “entertainment zone.”
