BYO alcohol - Queensland


If you operate a restaurant and intend to offer patrons the option of bringing their own alcohol, you may need to notify your local council. While a liquor licence is not required, an endorsement may be added to your food licence.

If you intend to sell liquor in your restaurant and allow patrons to bring their own alcohol, you will need a subsidiary on-premises licence. However, for some other types of licensed premises (e.g. cafes, nightclubs and certain public events), it is an offence for people to bring their own alcohol.

You may be required to display signage if you allow BYO alcohol on your premises.
