Las Vegas law allowing alcohol deliveries from restaurants, convenience stores goes into effect

News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Starting Sunday, residents in the Las Vegas city limits can get alcohol from restaurants and convenience stores delivered right to their front door.  

Las Vegas businesses that sell alcohol, as well as third-party delivery companies, will also be able to deliver alcohol to city residents. 

“We pride ourselves on the best margaritas in Las Vegas,” said Kyle Vannucci, general manager at Michoacan Mexican Restaurant on Centennial Center and Tropical Parkway. “Before, customers had to come pick up their alcohol. Now, this actually gives them opportunities to stay home and stay safe in their homes.” 

The new law passed by the Las Vegas City Council hopes to give restaurants and convenience stores a needed boost after months of restrictions.  

“We’re very excited and pleased that we’re able to do this,” Vannucci said. “It’s going to hopefully help liquor sales a lot more going forward and hopefully we can get back to full capacity here pretty soon.” 

Before deliveries can begin, businesses will need a license to “sell alcoholic beverages for off-premise consumption,” as well as an additional license unique to this law. 

Delivery services will also need to apply for the license.  

Once approved, bottled liquor, beer and wine will be available for delivery to anywhere in the city, except on non-restricted gaming properties.  

For months, Michoacan has provided “make your own cocktail” kits for customers, so they anticipate this will be a smooth transition.  

“If we can bring that home to you instead of you having to home inside our restaurant that’s a huge plus for us and the customer,” Vannucci said. 

Protocols must be in place to ensure delivery drivers are 21 or older and have gone through alcohol awareness training.  

This new law only applies to businesses and residents within the City of Las Vegas. Unincorporated Clark County, North Las Vegas and Henderson all have their own rules and regulations.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.
