No Alcohol Sales Past 9PM
New Public Health Order – Effective Thursday, April 9th, all liquor sales citywide are prohibited after 9 p.m. to help prevent congregate activity that has been observed across the city near stores that sell alcohol, particularly during evening hours. Recent enforcement measures have led to 21 citations issued for up to $120,000 in fines for eight businesses violating the statewide mandate. The new Public Health Order gives the Chicago Police Department (CPD) and the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) enforcement authority to further curb non-compliance, with potential penalties for liquor sales after 9 p.m. including $500 fine, arrest and revocation of liquor and other licenses.
