Apply for an annual liquor license

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) holds ultimate authority over liquor licensing. First, OLCC must accept your application. Next, forward your application to the City, which includes documentation beyond what's required for a temporary license.

The forms will take 15 to 20 minutes to complete. After submitting your completed forms to the City, it will take us 45 days to process your license.

Mail your application and fee to the City

Payment is accepted by cash, credit card, or check made payable to the City of Portland. 

Mail your completed application and fee to:

Liquor Licensing Program Office of Community & Civic Life
