Liquor Control Reminds Connecticut Residents about Package Store and Bar Hours during the Holidays

Friday, December 20th, 2019 – The Department of Consumer Protection’s (DCP) Liquor Control Division is reminding Connecticut residents that hours for some liquor permittees change on holidays:


  • Package stores must be closed on Christmas Day, and on New Year’s Day.
  • Bars must be closed by 3am on New Year’s Day morning.

“We hope everyone has a fun – and safe holiday season,” said Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull, “We encourage those who choose to drink alcohol to make responsible decisions, and want to remind the public that they must be over 21 to enjoy alcohol.”


Anyone with concerns or complaints about a liquor permittee in the State of Connecticut is encouraged to contact DCP’s Liquor Control Division via email at, or at (860) 713-6210.
