Alcohol Purchasing Hours in Louisiana: A Comprehensive Guide

Whether you’re a resident or a visitor in Louisiana, understanding the state’s alcohol laws is essential. Let’s explore when and where you can buy alcohol, along with the crucial role played by Ace Food Handler in obtaining your Responsible Vendor (RV) Bar Card.

When Can You Buy Alcohol in Louisiana?

Louisiana has some of the most lenient alcohol laws in the country. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Bars and Restaurants: These establishments must close by 2:00 a.m. daily, except for those in New Orleans, where they can operate 24 hours a day.
  • Off-Premises Locations (Gas Stations, Liquor Stores): There is no statewide limitation on off-premise beer sales. However, some local parishes may restrict hours or prohibit it altogether.
  • Sunday Sales: Unlike many states, Louisiana has no blue laws restricting alcohol sales on Sundays. You can buy beer, wine, and liquor seven days a week.
