Effective immediately, all bars across the state of Florida can no longer serve alcohol for consumption on premises.

The news comes from a tweet from Halsey Beshears, the secretary of the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation. In his tweet earlier Friday morning he wrote that “the Department of Business and Professional Regulation is suspending on premises consumption of alcohol at bars statewide.”

According to beverage law expert Gil Osterloh, this applies only to standalone bars and not to restaurants serving alcohol. Bars can still sell to-go drinks, package sales and deliver alcohol.

According to the Emergency Order below, all vendors who are licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for the consumption on the premises, and who derive more than 50% of gross revenues from these sales, will immediately suspend serving alcohol for consumption on the premises.

Restaurants may continue to serve on-premise so long as they derive 50% or less of their revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages.
