Additional Information about the ABC Licensing Process

 

The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) is the California-run agency that oversees the licensing of alcohol sales and service for restaurants, bars, hotels, retail stores, caterers and special events. .

 

Any person may protest the issuance of a license by filing a written request with ABC. There are numerous reasons why people protest such licenses, including:

 

  • The premises are not suitable (too close to a school, house of worship, playground, nonprofit youth facility or residence that would be disturbed).

  • The premises are in a high-crime area.

  • Selling and/or serving alcohol in this location would create a public nuisance.

  • Applicant is not qualified. (Either the application has been falsified, applicant has a disqualifying police record, is not a true owner or is not at least 21 years old).  

 

Written protests must be filed within 30 days of:

 

  • The first date of posting the premises with the notice of intention to sell alcoholic beverages.

  • The first date of posting the premises with the notice of application for ownership change.

  • The date of mailing the notice of application to residents within 500 feet of the proposed premises.
