Some Australians Will Finally Be Able To Have A Schooner At The Pub From Today

Some Australians Will Finally Be Able To Have A Schooner At The Pub From Today

After weeks of being closed, Aussie pubs, bars and clubs will finally be allowed to reopen.

Admittedly, your local won't look like it did before the coronavirus pandemic, however, you will be able to knock back a schooner or two.

Places in New South Wales and the Northern Territory will be able to welcome customers again with strict rules.

In New South Wales, you'll be able to have a schooner of beer or glass of wine with a meal as the actual bar and gaming areas of a pub or club will have to remain closed.

Venues will be restricted to just 10 people but you can still get alcohol with a meal or takeaway.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said: "So, even if there's multiple rooms or multiple facilities in a venue, it's only up to 10 people in one venue.

"For the first time in a long time, people will be out of the house for recreation purposes, and that means we all have to be vigilant."

The Northern Territory will be able to have patrons stream through the pubs, but on a specific set of rules: a two-hour time limit and you can only get alcohol with a meal.

The ACT will adopt a similar principle from tomorrow (may 16) with 10 patrons allowed and alcohol only served when food is ordered

ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr said: "Local hospitality businesses are encouraged to only reopen if the model works for them. Choosing to remain takeaway-only for now will have no impact on their ability to consider reopening as the maximum seated occupancy increases in the coming months."

That same rule applies to Queenslanders in major cities from tomorrow (May 16). However, in regional areas of the state, restaurants, cafes, pubs, registered and licensed clubs, RSL clubs and hotels will be able to welcome 20 people.

This rule will only apply to locals and you'll have to prove that you live in the area to be included.

Western Australia will have one of the sweetest deals when it kicks into gear on Monday (May 18), with 20 patrons allowed inside a venue at any given time for dining. The rule will extend to pubs, bars, community clubs, hotels and the casino and it includes indoor and outdoor eating spaces

But that means you won't be able to hit up your favourite watering hole for just beers, you have to have a meal too.

Tasmania has set a date to reopen pubs in a similar fashion from Monday as well. Sadly for those in Victoria and South Australia, no date has been set.
