To put it straight and in an easy way. No, or the coppers will batter you, trust me on this . (even though they seem to be allergic to beer in glass containers, they don't seem to mind beer in paper cups ) you take your own risks though
I know you say you like to walk along with a beer in your hand, and I'm saying this in the nicest possible way, have a bit of respect for the people who's country you are in. There are plenty of places that have outside seating for you to stop and have a beer.
You are not allow to drink anything in glass bottle in the streets. Anyway, this winter there had lots of troubles around Spain because people bought alcohol, ice and everything and stand in the squares, places and parcs just drinking all night and the next morning the places looked disgusting. From then they are much more strict with this matter.
And, as IbizaLisa said, you have lots of places where you can drink outdoors.
well, i think drinking in the street is a bit pointless, why not go in a bar and enjoy the music etc?
anyway - in san an a few weeks ago there were a few lads drinking bottles of lager on the walkway in front of Bar M and some coppers came over. i said to my mate 'watch this' thinking the lads would get a telling off.
nothing of the sort! instead one of them pulls out a bottle opener and helps take the tops of the lads beer which they then proceeded to drink while he coppers walked away...
In Las Vegas ( another one of my favorite places!)
You can take your drink everywhere. It's not that there is really a law about it. I have never heard anyone say anything about it, but no one stops you when you walk out of Cesar's palace to the Luxor with obviously a drink in your hand.
You can also use chips from one casino at another casino's place.
But ya know, it's not like you see a bunch of drunkards walking around with beer. People in general are just nicely dressed and respectful, with or without a drink in hand.
in the summer of 2001 got two 6packs and drank it with my buddy while waiting for our room to open up, watching people playing vollyball on the beach on the strip in san an. not only that but in the same time i saw a spanish couple pushing their baby while smoking a blunt, we asked them is that legal they said nobody cares. i'm not Encouraging to do so but it was a nice laid back vibe .............ibiza is hardcore
