The State Government is currently reviewing the Late Night Trading and General Codes of Practice under the Liquor Licensing Act 1997.
The review focuses particularly on the Late Night Code, which was developed in 2012 and 2013 following community concern about a number of late-night, alcohol-fuelled violent incidents in Adelaide.

What is this Late Night Code about?
The Late Night Code applies to most licensed venues open between 3.00am and 7.00am. Its measures include:
- drink marshals and first aid officers in venues after 12:00am
- a ban on drinking alcohol on footpaths after 2:00am
- a ‘lock-out’ which stops people entering or re-entering venues after 3:00am
- a ban on ‘shooters’, ‘doubles’, ‘laybacks’ and similar types of drink after 4:00am
