Cheers: Mayor looks to add 152 new liquor licenses in Boston

Stella Patio PartyEarlier this week Mayor Marty Walsh office working in conjunction with City Councilor Ayanna Pressley would add another 152 non-transferable liquor licenses to the City of Boston over the next three years. The proposal would bring the following to Boston from 2017 to 2019:

-Ten citywide (seven all-alcohol licenses and three malt & wine) licenses a year, with no more than three a year able to go to Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and North End each (30 total)

-Five licenses (three all-alcohol and two malt & wine) a year, 15 per neighborhood over three years, for each of the following: Dorchester, E. Boston, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Mission Hill and Roxbury (105 total)

-Five licenses (three all-alcohol and two malt & wine) a year for Main Streets Districts (15 total) as well as one all-alcohol license for the Boston Center for the Arts in the South End (hooray!) And finally the Lawn on D would get one all-alcohol license.

More needs to be done to reform the State’s antiquated liquor licensing laws but this is a move in the right direction. You can read the full article from BostInno, here.
