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.
- 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.
- Distance separation requirement pertaining to the resort and gaming corridor.
- 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.
