Utah's famously strict liquor laws forbid restaurants from pouring alcohol in front of customers, requiring servers to duck behind a partition to make drinks, but all that may soon change.
The ban is based on the idea that the state should shield the mixing of cocktails and pouring of drinks from children. ‘Zion curtains’ went up around the state as part of a compromise after lawmakers lifted a mandate in 2010 requiring bars to operate as members-only social clubs.
Utah lawmakers are now considering whether to repeal the requirement, a move that would ease restrictions and encourage new business. Right now, the requirement applies to restaurants that are less than three years old.
