New Year's Eve Parties To End At 4 AM

New, 4 comments

Around this time every year, the State Liquor Authority releases permit applications to allow New York bars and nightclubs to extend liquor sales until 7 AM on New Year's Eve. Club and bar owners then start to complain usually complain that they didn't know about the application deadlines, usually forcing the SLA to announce a filing extension. None of that will be happening this year, because New Year's Eve falls on a Sunday night. As Steve Lewis points out, "the SLA has decided that the standing New York State law that prohibits sales of liquor on a Sunday from 4am until noon supersedes its authority to extend the celebration." So this year, all New Year's Eve events will end at 4 AM, just like every other night of the year. It shouldn't really make a difference, since clubs were moving away from the 7 AM parties and nothing good can really ever come from being in any bar or club that long.
