Any idea what’s up with outdoor bar space lately? On Friday evening, I stopped by Etto, Rebellion and Bar Charley, and all had closed their patios by midnight. Is this a new law, or something just recently enforced?”
This is has always been the law. When Bars/Restaurants apply for liquor licenses hours are always listed on the placard for indoor space and outdoor space. Outdoor space (except for some roof decks) almost always close by midnight on the weekends (11pm during the week) to be considerate to neighbors who live nearby. Can anyone think of a patio that has hours later than midnight?
