Last call could come later in California under a bill that’s being proposed at the Capitol.
The bill, SB635 by Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, would allow cities and counties to petition the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to allow for alcohol service until 4 a.m., as happens in major cities like New York.
Leno said he envisions allowing nightclubs and other establishments that already stay open past 2 a.m. to continue serving alcohol as opposed to a blanket approval for all bars. Leno is pushing the idea as a potential boon for the economy, though he said he expects push back from groups concerned about public safety and drunk driving.
