Serving alcohol and managing people who are consuming alcohol are big responsibilities. Our goals are to help you provide this service in a way that brings people together, ensures safe practices, and contributes to the vibrancy of our communities. The OLCC holds sole authority to grant, deny or restrict a liquor license. The City of Portland’s role in liquor licensing is to act as a local processor of applications, provide information to support the OLCC in their decision making, and support local community building.

 The City of Portland Liquor Program processes the following liquor licenses:

Annual License Link Renewal of Annual License Link Temporary License Link


All liquor license applications and renewals must be reviewed and approved separately by both the City of Portland and the OLCC.

* We do not process or provide bartender or servers permits. OLCC provides server permits here. *
