What is the Liquor License Process?

In order to operate a business dealing in alcohol, you must have a local alcohol license, a State alcohol license and a Federal Basic Permit. Georgia is a local option license state, which means the local licenses must be issued before the State may issue a license or permit. The City of Atlanta requires that all persons desiring to obtain a liquor license should acquire the approved application from the Licenses and Permits Unit of the Atlanta Police Department License & Review Board(LRB).  The required NPU-M approval is via the Liquor License Process.  Information regarding approvals from the State of Georgia can be found here.
