Liquor licence holders in the Sister Islands now have the option to extend their hours of operation, including for this holiday season.

The Liquor Licensing Board of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman recently decided that bars, restaurants and hotels may be permitted (on application) to sell liquor and play music until 2am, Mondays to Fridays. All liquor sales and music must cease at midnight on Saturdays and Sundays.

Licensees are required to submit an extension application for the increased hours. The board will then grant or deny the request.

All other licensing stipulations will remain in effect, such as liquor sales and the playing of music ceasing during the last ten minutes of permitted opening hours.

The board will review extension applications during its last meeting of the year, scheduled for Friday, 23 December, at 10am in the District Administration Building's conference room in Cayman Brac.
