SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Salt Lake City theater is working to build a barrier not just around its bar but over it to prevent patrons on a balcony above from seeing drinks being poured.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2dgW3nG ) that in addition to the barrier around the bar, often referred to as a “Zion Curtain,” the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control concluded that the Eccles Theater will need to have something more like a Zion Ceiling” to prevent views from above.

The Zion Curtain is a barrier requirement has been in place for decades in some form and was preserved despite the liquor laws getting loosened in 2009. Supporters say they keep restaurants from looking like bars and curb underage drinking by hiding what they say is glamorous bartending.
