Some Irish Bars Generated Revenue From Off-Licence And Takeaway Services In January, But Sales Decreased By 75% Month-On-Month

Despite being closed for normal services, some Irish bars generated revenue in January by operating off-licence and takeaway services, however, according to the Central Statistics Office (CSO), bar sales decreased by 75% month-on-month during the first month of 2021.

Not Classified Under The CSO's "Food, Beverage & Tobacco" Division

As reported by The Irish Times, some bar businesses operate off-licence services, which are not classified under the CSO's "food, beverage & tobacco" division like regular off-licence sales, and some bars are also operating takeaway pint services.

Categorised As Bar Sales Revenue

The revenue generated from these off-licence and takeaway services is categorised as bar sales revenue, which is why the CSO has bar sales statistics even though bars are closed for normal services.
