ORLANDO, FLORIDA (WOFL FOX 35)– Last call in the City of Orlando is 2 a.m. Now, a new Orlando ordinance permanently sets in-place a ban on bars staying open longer than 2 a.m., everywhere in the city.

There had already been a temporary ban on after-hours alcohol sales in the city. Thursday’s unanimous city council vote makes the late-night booze ban permanent.

So, if you’re living it up in one of Orlando’s great bars, restaurants or nightclubs, go ahead! But keep in mind that the party ends at 2 a.m. Police Chief John Mina says that’s just fine.

“The ban on clubs opening up after 2 o’clock in the morning just makes sense from a public safety aspect. Citizens remain safe downtown and keeping clubs open past that hour is a drain on not only police but fire as well,” Mina says.
