Explaining Our Quirky Liquor Laws







Explaining Our Somewhat Quirky Liquor Laws



























































































It's and we would like to welcome you to the Salt Lake Tourist & Visitor Centers official online edition. This page provides detailed information on our Liquor Laws.


Relax, there are over 400 places where you can get a drink in Utah.


First, Private Clubs are a thing of the past.
Now you walk into a bar and order a drink, just like the rest of the country.

Also, just like the rest of the country, you have to be 21 to enter.


Bring Your I.D.
Now, Everyone Gets ID'

Everyone gets their ID checked at Utah liquor stores - no exceptions. Preferably your drivers license or a passport. It will be scanned and if it's valid, you're in.

So, if you're looking for a bar near your hotel, a cool sports bar, a local brew pub or for a nice glass of wine, you'll find it here in Salt Lake City.


Buying Beer at a Grocery/Convenience Store
Your ID will be needed for this as well.


Liquor
You can have drinks in Salt Lake Bars, Restaurants, and you can buy bottles of your favorite liquor at our state-run liquor stores.


Having a Drink in a Restaurant
If you are heading to a Utah Restaurant you must be dining to be able to order an alcoholic beverage. However, if you show an intent to eat, you may be served a drink before ordering.


Utah Liquor stores are closed on Sundays, state & federal holidays.

Wine
Wine is served in restaurants, bars and can also be purchased at the state liquor stores.


Beer
The old 3.2% alcohol by weight beer (which was actually 4% alcohol by volume, a more common measure) was sold in retail locations, grocery stores, etc. Beer on tap, or draft beer as it is known in Salt Lake's bars and restaurants was also only 3.2%. That's History!

It has been coined 'The Modernization of Utah' - Back in 2019 Utah updated our Liquor Laws where you can purchase stronger alcohol based beer, up to 5% ABV which is now sold at our grocery and convenience stores.

Stronger Strength Beer In Utah!
Stronger beer, above 5% ABV and up to 13% ABV is sold in select bars and restaurants and at our State-owned liquor stores.

With the elevation of 4000 feet plus above sea level, getting a "Buzz" on, can happen quickly in Utah. And if you're up in Park City at over 7000 feet above sea level, we suggest you take cabs, Uber, or maybe a designated driver, and just be careful. Our DUI/DWI Laws are the strictest in the nation at .05%!


Brew Pubs
Our Brew Pubs do offer some of the best food in town and are definitely worth visiting. When traveling, visiting a city's brew pubs can be a highlight of any day.

Smoking is Not Allowed in Utah Bars and Restaurants.
