Bars, restaurants, and nightclubs will be able to sell booze until 4 a.m. Sunday morning—an extra hour than the usual last call on weekends.
This is the first daylight saving time in D.C. where businesses don’t have to register with the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and pay a fee to extend their hours. Previously, liquor-serving establishments had to pay a $200 to serve alcohol for an additional hour when the clock sprung forward at 2 a.m. to 3 a.m.
Businesses that have settlement agreements restricting their closing hours will still have to abide by those hours, no matter what the clock says.
