About Liquor Serving License and Regulations in Australia
At Enrique’s we follow all the serving of alcohol and restaurant license laws in Australia
In a licensed restaurant premises, for serving food and drinks together, the stakes are much high as it involves consumers health. Enrique’s School for to Bullfighting supports responsible service of alcohol. Under the Liquor Control Act 1988, it is an offence to sell or supply liquor to a person below the drinking age in Australia of 18 years on licensed or regulated premises; or for a person under the age of 18 years to purchase or attempt to purchase liquor on a licensed or regulated premise.
Along with this, we encourage to maintain other restaurant laws and regulations on serving liquor where in, we do not over serve, maintain orderly conduct, sell at authorized times only, do not allow drinking in the alcohol restricted areas Australia like the food preparation area, storage area, stairs, as well as in hallway and have maintained well-trained staff to serve food as well as liquor to our customers.
The Liquor Control Act 1988 covers every aspect of laws for all the specific matters involved in relation to licensing and regulation of liquor, which ranges from prescribing license fees and application requirements to restaurant management rules and regulations to be followed to every drinking laws Australia permits.
Enrique’s, a restaurant that serves liquor, had to have a restaurant license wherein we can serve food as our main business and we can also serve liquor to our valuable customers. This setup can be carried out mainly with professional help. For us, our business lawyers at The Beaufort Merchant, completely took care of it. Hiring business lawyers for our firm had such a massive advantage in carrying out business activities easily!
Originally Enrique’s was intended to be a short-term pop-up, but it stuck around because people responded to its unusual offering. The drinks are largely centred around gin here. There’re 15 standard bottles to choose from, which can be matched with five different tonics or 15 garnishes. For real fanatics, an extra page is devoted to limited-edition gins from the UK and beyond.
Other than this, you can have a spritzer, beer, sherry, sangria or lighter varieties of wine such as grenache, pinot noir and the Sicilian grillo. Cocktails include a Burnt Butter Old Fashioned with beurre noisette, salted caramel, chocolate and booze, or the self-explanatory Cold Drip Negroni at our restaurant.
Most plates are shared here, such as char-grilled octopus with paprika potato and hand-pounded pesto; or Squid Sliders comprised of crispy squid, creamed corn and jalapeño and cos ‘slaw. Things get a little more intense with chef Navarre Top’s beef ribs braised in barbeque sauce and arroz negro (black rice, jamon, squid, chilli, garlic).
Although, there are few things more serious to a Latino than 24-month-aged Iberico de Bellota, sliced with all the skill of the matador’s swooping cape.
