Some of my clients inquire about the five hundred foot law, and in New York state, if you have an on-premises liquor license, there can be no more than three locations within a five hundred foot distance. So often, my clients come to be thinking that because there is an existing bar near their premises or on the same street that that means that they can qualify for a liquor license and that is not necessarily the case. Further, if you have an on-premises liquor license, sometimes you need community board approval which can be a very complex process so my clients look to me to help them navigate the five hundred foot law as well as community board approval before picking a location for their bar or restaurant that serves full liquor.
