The City’s Liquor Licensing Program is housed within the Office of Community & Civic Life. In Oregon, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) holds ultimate authority over liquor licensing. Licensing applications begin and end with the OLCC. The OLCC creates and owns most of the forms you'll need to apply. Portland participates in the licensing process by supporting application review, public information, and public safety.
