NSW pubs have expanded powers for trading under new liquor and gaming laws that recently came into effect.

The Clubs, Liquor, and Gaming Machines Legislation Amendment Act 2011 contained a range of reforms, including allowing hoteliers to cease liquor operations during approved trading hours but continue to provide other services.

Effective from March 30, food service, entertainment, gambling activities, conferences and non-alcoholic beverages can now be offered without regular liquor trading.

The amendment aims to de-couple liquor and gaming, in an attempt to address concerns about players gambling whilst intoxicated.

The reform also allows hotels to open for breakfast or provide other non-gambling services without the need to sell alcohol.
