BC Gov News: Liquor Law Changes Affecting BC Hotels and Resorts

Get cozy with your cocktails at B.C. hotels and resorts

B.C. hotels and resorts with a bar, pub or restaurant on site will soon be able to allow their guests to carry unfinished liquor from their licensed establishment directly to their rooms, a move that provides flexibility for businesses and increases convenience for British Columbians and visitors to the province.

Previously, guests were restricted to drinking alcohol in licensed areas and were unable to take their drink back to their room. Hotels and other overnight accommodation spots will have the discretion to allow guests to finish their drink at their own pace and in the comfort of their suite. Additionally, hotels and resorts that own a bar or pub onsite will soon be able to provide guests with a complimentary standard-sized alcoholic beverage upon check-in.
