On March 20, 2019, the Las Vegas City Council met to discuss a proposed bill regarding social use venues (consumption lounge) in the City of Las Vegas. After deliberation, the Council members instructed the City staff that they would like various additions included.

These include;

  1. The creation of a pilot program, which would only allow companies that currently hold a dispensary license to apply for a social use venue license. There were talks to include a sunset provision which would allow, after 12 months, anyone to apply for social use venue license.
  2. Distance separation requirement pertaining to the resort and gaming corridor.
  3. No alcohol to be served within a social use venue.

After the presentation of provisions, the City Council decided that further revisions and discussions were necessary before the Council could make a decision. The City Council will discuss this at the meetings scheduled for April 17, 2019.
