All Cayman Islands liquor license holders can receive a one-hour extension to regularly required closing times on Wednesday, Dec. 31, for New Year’s Eve.
Liquor Licensing Board of Grand Cayman Chairman Mitchell Welds said license holders must apply for the extension.
The additional hour can be added only to the closing time – for example, a business that normally closes at 1 a.m. can apply for an extension to close at 2 a.m. All other license stipulations remain in effect.
“Liquor sales and the playing of music must cease during the last ten minutes of permitted opening hours for retail, hotel, restaurant, and beer or wine categories of licenses,” Mr. Welds said. “Furthermore, customers are to vacate the premises before closing.”
