Category: Local Govts & Politics

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

October 11, 2017 - This year’s New Year’s Eve celebration will fall on a Sunday in the 2017 calendar year. The City of Savannah will apply State Code Section 3-3-7(r) of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, allowing bars within the Savannah city limits to serve alcohol on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017 between 12:30 p.m. and midnight. In addition, the City of Savannah will extend the closing time to 2 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018.

Recognizing that this is a change from standard operation, Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police will be working with bar owners to encourage prompt and voluntary compliance with the 2 a.m. sales cut-off. Police staff will be in the field on Sunday to visit open bars and remind owners of their obligation to stop serving at 2 a.m.
