As of January 16, 2022, the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) no longer licenses Gaming Cafes or accepts new or renewal applications.

Local Law 80 of 2021 ended the requirement that a business must first get a license from DCWP before operating a Gaming Cafe. Businesses must continue to comply with all relevant federal, State, and City laws and rules.

Call 311 or 212-NEW-YORK (212-639-9675) for assistance.
