Two Secretariat restaurants apply for liquor licences

Two new restaurants preparing to open at the newly refurbished Secretariat building in downtown Yangon have applied for the FL 17 licence, which will allow them to sell imported alcohol on premise.

Objections from the public, if any, should be filed at Botahtaung Township General Administration Department (GAD) within 15 days, said U Sein Thaung, Administrator of the GAD.

The restaurants will open on the Anawartha Road side of the Secretariat, where KFC and Krispy Kreme have each opened an outlet. Tom N Toms Coffee is also open at the building, on the Thein Phyu Road entrance.

Dr Mg Mg Thein, president of the Secretariat Yangon Renovation Group, said that pubs and liquor stores are not allowed to operate in the Secretariat under a directive by the authorities. However, the sale of imported alcohol as part of the menu at high-end restaurants is permitted.

Under those circumstances, the two new restaurants should be allowed to open and serve alcohol, he said.

Earlier this month, an outlet of De Beau Wellness Centre, a Singapore spa, which was scheduled to open in the Secretariat after October, was not permitted to launch as planned due to objections from the public.
