Alcoholic beverages: music venue license: entertainment zones: consumption.

Abstract

(1) The Alcoholic Beverage Control Act contains various provisions regulating the application for, the issuance of, the suspension of, and the conditions imposed upon alcoholic beverage licenses by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Existing law provides for various annual fees for the issuance of alcoholic beverage licenses, depending upon the type of license issued. This bill would authorize the department to issue a music venue license, as defined, that would allow the licensee to sell beer, wine, and distilled spirits at retail for consumption on the premises in a music entertainment facility, as defined. The bill would limit a music venue licensee's authorization to sell, serve, and permit consumption of alcoholic beverages to the time period from 2 hours before a live performance until one hour after the live performance, subject to an existing law provision that makes selling, giving, delivering, or purchasing an alcoholic beverage a misdemeanor. The bill would authorize an on-sale general bona fide public eating place licensee or an on-sale general public premises licensee as of the effective date of this bill to exchange that license for a music venue license, as provided. The bill would impose an original fee, an exchange fee, and an annual renewal fee for the license, which would be deposited in the Alcohol Beverage Control Fund. The bill would authorize an on-sale licensee to permit a person under 21 years of age into the music entertainment facility, as provided. The bill would authorize the department to promulgate regulations to implement these provisions. (2) Under existing law, any person possessing an open container of an alcoholic beverage in any city, county, or city and county-owned public place, as specified, or any regional park or recreation and park district, is guilty of an infraction if the city or county has enacted an ordinance that prohibits the possession of those containers or the consumption of alcoholic beverages in those areas, except as specified. Existing law, the Planning and Zoning Law, authorizes the legislative body of any city or county to adopt ordinances regulating zoning within its jurisdiction, as specified. Existing law authorizes a licensed beer manufacturer, a licensed winegrower, and any on-sale licensee to sell certain alcoholic beverages for consumption on or off the premises, as specified. This bill, additionally, would authorize a licensed beer manufacturer, a licensed winegrower, and any on-sale licensee to permit consumers to leave the premises with open containers of alcoholic beverages for consumption off the premises within an entertainment zone, subject to certain conditions. The bill would define "entertainment zone" for purposes of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act as a zone created by a city, county, or city and county ordinance on or after January 1, 2023, that authorizes consumption of one or more types of alcoholic beverages on public streets, sidewalks, or public rights-of-way in that zone.
