New liquor laws in Singapore today


The Liquor Control Act was passed in Parliament in January to regulate the supply and consumption of liquor in public places, and minimise public disorder and dis-amenities arising from drinking in public.

Under the Act, retail sale of take-away alcohol and public drinking will not be allowed from 10.30pm to 7am every day. Alcohol can still be consumed within licensed premises such as restaurants, coffee shops or bars, in accordance with the hours stipulated in their respective licences.

Minister for Home Affairs Teo Chee Hean has also ordered the declaration of Geylang and Little India as Liquor Control Zones (LCZs) with immediate effect

Within the LCZs, additional restrictions for the consumption of liquor in public places will be imposed on weekends and public holidays. Public drinking will not be allowed in these zones from 7am on Saturdays to 7am the following Monday, and from 7pm of the eve of a public holiday to 7am the day after the public holiday.

Thanks guys. I am not an alcoholic but I do not mind the occasional beer with friends. Thanks for making Singapore even more boring
