For one week, Super Bowl fans can drink until 4 a.m. in Atlanta

Super Bowl fans visiting Atlanta – and everyone else, too – will be able to indulge in libations two hours later each night, starting on Monday.   

The city will extend alcohol sale hours for all bars throughout the city from the standard 2:30 a.m. last call to 4 a.m. for the week of the game Monday, Jan. 28 to Monday, Feb. 4. 

Businesses selling alcohol must have patrons out of their establishments within 30 minutes of the 4 a.m. Feb. 4 deadline.

The City Council voted to waive the provisions at an Aug. 20 meeting.
