If your business is engaged in or contemplating allowing alcohol consumption and will operate or be open for use by patrons, for any length of time, between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 6:00 on any given day of the week, please review the Late Night Establishment Regulations for the necessary requirements and regulations. If your business requires a Preclearance Letter, please complete the application online, then print a copy, and mail to the contact person listed below.
The issuance of the Preclearance Letter does not authorize the recipient to operate a late night establishment. Rather, after receiving a Preclearance Letter, the recipient must also obtain a valid certificate of zoning compliance or special exception issued in accordance with Horry County’s zoning laws, and thereafter a valid Business License.
