DBKL has announced that it will be imposing sales restrictions on hard liquor in particular premises starting October next year.
Sundry shops, grocery stores, convenience stores and Chinese medicine shops located in Kuala Lumpur will not be allowed to sell hard liquor following the implementation of this new ruling in 2021, as said by a press release shared by DBKL. These premises can only renew their licenses until 30 September next year.
However, beer and products involving pure or mixed liquor in traditional medicine are allowed to be sold at these locations between the fixed time period of 7am to 9pm. As for wholesalers and sundry shops, liquor can be sold between this time frame as well. Nonetheless, beers must be placed separately from other beverages. In beer houses, the sale of liquor will only be allowed between the time period of 10am to midnight.
Aside from these prohibitions, businesses who sell liquor, “cannot be in front of police stations, houses of worship, schools and hospitals”.

Businesses and that permit the consumption of liquor at their location will be identified through the display of a blue liquor licence. Alternatively, if the premise is equipped with a yellow licence, this means that liquor will only be sold on a take-away basis.
