Liquor Sunday Sales approved in Dublin

DUBLIN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Restaurants in Dublin will soon be able to sell alcoholic beverages on Sundays. The city approved the Sunday Sales of Alcoholic Beverages by the Drink law.

“Restaurants and hotels that already have alcohol licenses to sell alcohol during the week. They’ll be able to apply to be able to sell it on Sundays,” City Attorney Josh Powell said. “From 12:30 PM until midnight.”

This also applies to bars that sell food.

The Dublin City Council believes this new law will help the economic development and enrich the city for citizens. Andy Neumann, bar manager at Company Supply, believes it will too.

“It’s going to bring more revenue,” Neumann said. “It’s going to bring more guests, into Company Supply, into Dublin on Sundays and I think it’ll be good for a lot of the local businesses.”

Company Supply is usually closed on Sundays, but now that the law has passed they are thinking about changing that. They are already making plans.
“We’re looking forward to doing maybe a Brunch menu some brunch style cocktails for the bar,” Neumann said. “It’s actually kind of exciting.”

The city hopes that this impacts the community in a positive way.
“It’s an opportunity for more employment, more jobs available,” Powell said. “Restaurants serve our citizens and if we can bring more in to help do that, that’s a great thing.”

Businesses will be able to apply for Sunday Sales Friday, November 11th at no additional fees.

You still will not be able to buy drinks by the package at stores, but at least you can enjoy your favorite beverage on Sundays at participating restaurants in Dublin.
