California’s nightlife just took a huge turn! The last call for clubs and bars is at 2AM has been pushed back to 4AM!
Last call for alcohol service is known to be 2AM all around clubs and bars, but a bill pushed by California Senator Scott Wiener, has just changed the last call to 4AM!
Earlier this year Senator Wiener introduced his a campaign for his bill called “Let Our Communities Adjust Late Night Act.” The bill proposes that each municipality within the state, be given authority to choose the hour of their last call, even as late as 4AM.
“Nightlife matters a lot, culturally and economically, and it’s time to allow local communities more flexibility.” – Senator Scott Wiener
The bill has officially been passed in the Senate, “allowing, but not requiring local communities to let their bars and nightclubs serve alcohol until 4AM”.
The key words in this bill are “not requiring,” meaning, although local bars and clubs are able to have last call at 4AM, they can choose not to, allowing them to decide their own time to stop the alcohol from flowing. The passed bill will now move to Assembly for a review and a vote before reaching the governor for final word.
This is a big step for the nightlife scene. It seems like clubs and bars will be making more profit, as well as companies like Uber & Lyft. Time will only tell which municipalities will adjust their hours!
