Say goodbye to those bottomless mimosas and bloody marys on Saturday and Sunday mornings. All-you-can-drink alcohol has been illegal for a while in New York City, but law enforcement has looked the other way. Now the state is cracking down, with the NYC Hospitality Alliance citing a statute from the State Liquor Authority:

“The ABC Law prohibits from selling, serving, delivering or offering to patrons an unlimited number of drinks during any set period of time for a fixed price.  The law also requires that licensees prohibit party organizers, promoters, etc., from engaging in this conduct in the licensees’ establishment.  The statute also prohibits licensees from creating drink specials which, in the judgment of the Authority, are attempts to circumvent the law. This includes offerings of free drinks, or multiple drinks for free or for the price of a single drink, or for a low initial price followed by a price increment per hour or other period of time.   The SLA does allow 2 for 1, half price and other such specials where the price of a drink is not lower than one-half of the premise’s normal or regular price for the same drink. Section 117-a does not apply to private functions not opened to the public, such as weddings, banquets, or receptions, or other similar functions or to a package of food and beverages where the service of alcoholic beverages is incidental to the event or function.  If you have questions about whether a particular drink special would be a violation of Section 117-a, or whether a particular event is exempt from the statute, please contact the Authority’s Office of Counsel.”
