In abundance of caution and accordance with CDC recommendations to restrict gatherings of 50 or more people, the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses is indefinitely restricting in-person licensing to appointment only at the Excise and Licenses office. If you need to meet in-person with an Excise and Licenses representative, please schedule your appointment here. Many required business licenses can be applied for online or via an email application. Go here for more information about submitting an application via email.
Below is a collection of forms and documents you may need with applications for Business Licenses and Liquor Licenses. Visit the specific business license or liquor license page for step by step instructions on how to apply for a license and documents required.
If you have a complaint, compliment or concern about a business operating in Denver, please complete the Business License Compliment/Complaint Form and return it to our Department. We will investigate any complaint regarding the business licenses that we issue for the City and County of Denver.
