Working as an Accountant in a Restaurant Bar and Lounge

Q: If someone works as an accountant in a restaurant bar and lounge where people have food as well as alcohol, is their earning halal or haram?

Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa

It is not at all correct to be in such an environment. If your work does not entail anything haram, then although your earnings cannot be categorically said to be haram, it is not befitting of a Muslim to work for such a company. One should seek alternate employment.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
