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.


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.
