Section 3AB of this Act states that a person is in a state of intoxication if “his or her speech, balance, co-ordination or behaviour is noticeably affected and there are reasonable grounds for believing that this is the result of consumption of liquor.” In this instance you will be provided with water and ask to stop consuming alcohol.

SIGNS OF INTOXICATION WE IDENTIFY INCLUDE:
– Dizziness
– Poor Coordination
– Blurred vision
– Slurred Speech
– Delayed Reactions
– Loss of inhibitions
– Unconsciousness/Sleepiness
– Flushed complexion
– Aggressive behaviour

Our security staff and staff will not tolerate any disorderly, disruptive or offensive behaviour on these premises at any time and any patron behaving in an unacceptable manner will be asked to leave the premises immediately in accordance with the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 VIC and/or the Private Security Act 2004 VIC.
If you have been offended by the behaviour of any of our staff or other patrons please bring it to the attention of the manager on duty.
All our staff have completed their Responsible Service of Alcohol certificate. In addition, all staff involved in the service of alcohol have been briefed on liquor licensing legislation, patron care, responsible service of alcohol through in-house training and Responsible Service of Alcohol refresher courses as required. Our security staff are private security individual operator licenses, granted under the Private Security Act of 2004 VIC
