    Hi Quinn,

    What kind of gaming venue is your place of employment? Is there alcohol being served? Is there live music being played? What hours does the venue open until?

    Hi Quinn,

    I am not too familiar with the requirements of venues such as gambling, alcohol and music venues. I would suggest talking to the Victorian Commission for Gaming and Liquor Regulation (as recommended above) as well as the local council where your place of employment is located. Just explain your situation/venue to them and they should be able to advise you or direct you in the right direction.
