D.C. alcohol board adds bars to late-open list

The D.C. Alcohol Beverage Administration has granted an additional seven bars and restaurants permission to serve alcohol Sunday night until 4 a.m. Monday and remain open all night, the second test of the city’s new extended night-life hours on the night before a federal District holiday.

As part of the city’s fiscal 2013 budget, bars and restaurants that apply to ABRA are permitted to stay open until 4 a.m. and serve food round-the-clock on the night before a holiday. On New Year’s, Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day, extended closing times will be permitted for the entire weekend leading up to the holiday.

The extended hours kicked off last month for Columbus Day after 42 bars and restaurants where given permission to remain open later. Fred Moosally, director of ABRA, said no significant problems were reported though a few establishments were cited for remaining open past the normal 2 a.m. closing time without first receiving permission.

“It was simply an issue that some places that didn’t register stayed open later, and didn’t have authorization to do so,” Moosally said. “But it was basically just an administrative violation.”

In the addition to the 42 bars and restaurants that had permission to serve alcohol until 4 a.m. on Columbus Day, the Stadium Club, Red Palace, Sesto Senso, Johanna’s Restaurant, Red Palace, Café Dupont and Bravo Bravo have been approved for extended hours Sunday.

The full list of the 49 bars and restaurants that can remain open until 4 a.m. is below, though it’s unclear if all the establishments plan to utilize their extended pre-holiday license this weekend. The number of approved establishments is expected to grow for future holidays.
