Like in any other state in the US, the Texas Alcoholic Bar Commission requires bar producers to apply for licenses to become eligible for operating them. The details of obtaining the license are readily available in the internet. The state of Texas requires a manufacturer to furnish several details such as name, mailing address, phone and trade name. The file is usually compressed with a ZIP program, and the entire data can be downloaded for a fee. A one-time non-refundable application fee of $1,100 to apply for a liquor-primary license or a liquor-primary club license is charged initially. Beer license costs for bars and clubs in Dallas, Tarrant and Harris counties are estimated to be $5,000, which is about 25% higher than other counties in the state.
