The End of Private Clubs in Utah

As of Wednesday, July 1st, 2009 the “Private Club Law” is off the books in Utah.  The state updated liquor laws which required social clubs and bars to charge a membership fee to guests prior to entrance.  Locals and visitors will now be able to frequent all establishments as well as less familiar ones without shelling out for the temporary membership card.

Although the new law does away with the “Private Club” membership requirements, bar owners are required to purchase special equipment to scan the driver license of any patron who appears to be under 35. The recorded information will be retained on site for seven days.
