    LA RS 40:1379.3
    .
    N. No concealed handgun may be carried into and no concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to this Section shall authorize or entitle a permittee to carry a concealed handgun in any of the following:
    .
    .
    (10) Any portion of the permitted area of an establishment that has been granted a Class A-General retail permit, as defined in Part II of Chapter 1 or Part II of Chapter 2 of Title 26 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950, to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises.


    So, what is a Class A-General retail permit?
    LA RS 26:71.1
    §71.1. Class A permit; definitions
    The commissioner shall issue the following four types of Class A retail liquor permits:
    (1) Class A-General:
    (a) A Class A-General retail permit shall be issued only to a retail outlet where beverage alcohol is sold on the premises for consumption on the premises by paying customers. Such an establishment must be equipped with a permanent wet bar equipped with a non-movable sink and a backbar or similar equipment for public display and to inform the public of brands and flavors offered for sale.
    (b) A Class A-General retail establishment shall be staffed by a bartender whose primary duty is to open and/or prepare beverage alcohol products for consumption on the premises by paying customers, or prepared with an appropriate lid or cover on the container for take out service. Such an establishment must meet all state and local zoning requirements as set forth by the state and by parishes and municipalities where a Class A-General retail outlet is located.
    (c) Repealed by Acts 1995, No. 1016, §2.
    (d) A Class A-General retail permit shall be issued only to an establishment where the state law provides that no person under the age of eighteen years is allowed on the premises except as provided in R.S. 26:90(A)(8)(a).

    (e) Notwithstanding the provisions of Subparagraphs (a) through (d) of this Paragraph, the commissioner may issue a Class A-General liquor permit to any bona fide commercial film theater which had a Class A liquor permit on January 1, 1994.

    (f) Notwithstanding the provisions of Subparagraphs (a) through (e) of this Paragraph, the commissioner may issue a Class A-General retail permit to any retail establishment for consumption on or off the premises. Such establishment must meet all state and local zoning requirements as set forth by the state and by parishes and municipalities where the retail outlet is located. A Class A-General retail permit issued pursuant to the authority granted by this Subparagraph shall not be deemed or qualify as a prerequisite for the issuance of any other type license or permit issued by the state or any political subdivisions thereof.
    (g) The licensed premises of a Class A-General retail permit shall be able to accommodate a minimum of twenty-five patrons and contain no less than three hundred seventy-five square feet of public habitable floor area.
    (h) The commissioner shall promulgate rules regarding requirements related to the number and location of public restrooms to be used in conjunction with the licensed premises of each Class A-General retail permit.
    (i) Any Class A-General retail permit application submitted prior to September 1, 2001, shall not be required to meet the qualifications set forth in Subparagraph (g) of this Paragraph

    Restaurants have Class A-Restaurant permits. Can a restaurant be dual permitted; one for the bar and one for the family section? The LSP said so, but to date nobody knows of a place that has a Class A-General retail permit for the bar section and a Class A-Restaurant permit for the family area. Bottom line, if you have to be 18 to enter, then you are not allowed to carry.

    Questions keep repeating about Class A General Alcohol Permits. The Louisiania Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control web site lets you download a list of current Alcohol Permits. You can limit your search by Permit Type, Parish, City, or Zip Code.

    There appear to be three (3) categories that you need to Check:
    1. Class A General Beer and Liquor​
    2. Class A General Liquor​
    3. Class A General Beer​
    I downloaded all three lists for Orleans Parish (which is the City of New Orleans) and there werethe following:
    1. Class A General Beer and Liquor - 415 Permits​
    2. Class A General Liquor - 1 Permit​
    3. Class A General Beer - 4 Permits​
    If you download the lists in Excel format, you can sort them into alphabetical order by name to make searching easier.

    I didn't find anyplace listed that I would classify as a restaurant.

    The web site also lists categories of:
    1. Class A General-6Beer and Liquor​
    2. Class A General-6 Liquor​
    3. Class A General-6 Beer​
    When downloaded these show as Class E Permits.​
