Nightlife Update: 273 D.C. Bars Register Stay Open All Night
The final list is out and a total of 273 D.C. bars, restaurants and nightclubs have registered with the city to stay open all night and serve alcohol until 4 a.m. from Jan. 17-21. Here's the complete list with addresses. The list grew from the 213 establishments that had registered by last week's deadline because another 60, which had pending applications, convinced neighborhood groups to allow them to stay open later. A handful of those will stay open until 3 a.m., not 4 a.m.
Meantime, bars in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County will stay open an hour later Both chambers of the Maryland General Assembly passed emergency legislation this morning to allow liquor license holders to pay a $200 fee for the right to serve alcohol an hour longer. With the special permit, establishments that must now close at midnight can remain open to 1 a.m.; others that now are able to stay open until 2 can push that time to 3 a.m. on Jan. 21. A spokesman for Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) said he intends to sign the legislation.
