Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced new restrictions for bars, taverns, breweries, and non-essential businesses on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2020. The new constraints will take effect on Friday at 6:00 a.m. CT and will be enforced between 10 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. — last call for alcohol at 9:00 p.m.
Due to the increase of COVID cases in the city, another shut down means drinking inside is not an option. All of the aforementioned businesses that “do not have a Retail Food Establishment License will no longer be able to serve customers indoors — at any time.”
The last call for serving alcohol is 9:00 p.m.
Taverns, and similar businesses violating the restrictions and curfew face “citations with fines up to $10,000 and a possible closure in the ‘case of egregious violations.'”
