How about pushing the party back to 4 a.m.?

A California state senator wants to keep the party going a little bit later when it comes to the last call at local bars and restaurants.

In fact, how about until 4 a.m.?

Sen. Scott Wiener, a Democrat from San Francisco, proposed Senate Bill 384 that would allow, but not require, local governments to extend the drinking hours from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m., with the ultimate approval of the state’s Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC).

“California is a diverse state, with cities and neighborhoods that have different needs when it comes to nightlife,” said Sen. Wiener. “By granting local control to our cities to extend their late night hours, we can support areas that benefit economically and culturally from a strong nightlife presence, while ensuring that other cities and neighborhoods retain their current rules. This nuanced approach has been successful in other cities across the country, and California cities should have the same options as places like Chicago, New York, and Washington D.C.”

Through a news release on his website, Wiener said he’s already getting strong support from various groups, including the California Restaurant Association.

“California’s social and nightlife industries are already an economic driver for many California communities,” said Sharokina Shams from the California Restaurant Association.  “This bill would give eating and drinking establishments the opportunity to work with the local governing bodies and local law enforcement to design a plan that works for a specific location.  SB 384 provides a clear potential for economic growth.  Not only will it allow restaurants, bars, art galleries and hotels to extend on-sale hours, it will increase local revenue and help other small businesses that operate late-night cafes, bookstores, and record stores to thrive.”
