The City of Cape Town has eased its liquor by-laws, according to a report on Thursday.

Mayor Patricia de Lille said it now distinguished between alcohol sales and consumption, according to the Cape Times newspaper.

She said the by-law recognised some areas as social spots with minimal disruption potential.

"It allows for champagne breakfasts. It allows for winetasting. It allows for a range of activities that were unnecessarily excluded.

It allows for trade," she was quoted by the newspaper as saying in a council meeting.

"It will allow for enforceability where there are social disruptions and it will allow for a degree of preventing the kind of excess that allows for abuse."
