Detached Bottle Shop Applications

Many people have ideas to open a Bottle Shop, unfortunately however, only Commercial Hotel Liquor Licensees have the right to apply.

  • Applications for Bottle shops are complex and often refused by the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation.
  • Not all locations are suitable and you must have a good reason for its placement.
  • A detailed Community Impact Statement is required for approval.
  • If the intended Bottle shop faces or if you can visibly see petrol bowsers from the front of the proposed premise, your application may be refused.
  • All applications are required to be advertised.

If you are a Commercial Hotel Liquor Licence holder, you are permitted to have 3 remote Bottle shops within a radius of 10 kilometres of your Tavern or Hotel.

The area of the Bottle shop premise can be a maximum of 150sq metres retail and liquor storage areas. Toilets and administration office space can be added in excess of the above maximum.
