Consumer Affairs and Licensing

We license and regulate entertainment activities in Boston. We also educate the public on topics like credit rights and consumer scams, and help consumers fight deceptive business practices.

Annual license renewals (November 1 - 30, 2019)

We will mail out entertainment license renewal applications Friday, October 25, 2019. You can renew your annual license at our office Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

We maintain safety and order in Boston's restaurants and nightclubs through the licensing and monitoring of entertainment activities. Aside from educating the public, we also advocate and mediate on behalf of Boston consumers. Find out more about our work.
