SLC’s unique new liquor store opens Monday. Here’s what you need to know.

The new store at 151 E. 300 South is the first in Utah to have two floors.

Monday at 11 a.m. is your chance to shop at Salt Lake City’s new liquor store, which has been under construction downtown for months.

The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Services’ (DABS) new store at 151 E. 300 South replaces the old downtown liquor store at 205 W. 400 South, near Pioneer Park.

The new store is the first in Utah to have two floors, according to a news release. It also doubles the amount of inventory that the now-closed store on 400 South had, and features 37 doors of refrigeration space for beer and other products, the release said.

Cade Meier, deputy director of the DABS, described the store as “bright,” with good flow. “We listened to a lot of information on what customers would like to see, and we’ve been able to implement those,” he said at the liquor commission’s monthly meeting on Thursday.

The new store will also feature a Proudly Utah section, Meier said, filled with items made in Utah.

“The DABS is excited to open this store, which is designed with a heightened focus on customer service,” said DABS Executive Director Tiffany Clason in a statement. “Better service for residents, tourists and the hospitality businesses like restaurants and bars that rely on the DABS for products sold at their establishments.”

Clason said in the release that the new store is expected to generate $13 million in state fiscal year 2025, which begins July 1. Out of those funds, about $6 million will go to state and local governments to fund services such as roads and transportation, health, public safety and education, the release said. The DABS expects that 20% of sales at the downtown store will come from local hospitality businesses that purchase alcohol there, the release continued.

Metered parking is available along 300 South. Free parking is available in the lot behind the new store on Edison Street, a one-way street that can be accessed just west of Laziz Kitchen on 200 South.
