Citizen's Guide to the
Liquor License FAQs
In order to help facilitate the Liquor License processes within City requirements, we have compiled this guide and questionnaire form that contains information related to the City’s review process.
It is important to be aware of city zoning and licensing requirements prior to committing to a business location or submitting a liquor license application to the State. As part of Scottsdale's liquor license process you are required to:
- Submit State Liquor license application to be processed concurrently with Scottsdale conditional use permit request (if a conditional use is required). Conditional use permit requests typically take 4-6 months to process. The Scottsdale City Council has the authority to make recommendations to the State Liquor Board (on State liquor license applications) and is responsible for reviewing conditional use permit requests. City Council review occurs at a public hearing, typically held in the Scottsdale City Hall Kiva, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd.
