Liquor Liability Town Hall Wednesday

March 23, 2023

Some of the most expensive liquor liability insurance in the country is in the District of Columbia. In some cases, insurance for a neighborhood bar or restaurant costs 100 times more here than in Maryland or Virginia.

  • Deeper Dive: The exorbitant costs make it hard for businesses of all sizes, but it disproportionately affects small, independently owned neighborhood bars and restaurants, and in particular those owned by entrepreneurs of color.

  • Good News: Legislation to reform liquor liability laws has been introduced in DC Council. 

Tune In: The DC Nightlife Council and RAMW host an operator town hall on Wednesday, March 29 at 2:00 pm. Join and learn what you can do to help pass liquor liability reform.
