ABC Extended Holiday Hours

Extended holiday hours do not apply during Phase Two. The sale and on-premises consumption of alcohol during Phase Two is limited to 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m., daily. 

The Extended Holiday Hours Program allows alcohol licensed restaurants, taverns, nightclubs, hotels, and multipurpose facilities to sell and serve alcohol until 4:00 a.m. and operate 24 hours a day, unless an ABC Board Order or Settlement Agreement restricts hours, during certain federal and District Government holidays and three-day weekends.

Advance registration is required. Once a licensee is registered and approved, the registration is valid for all remaining applicable holidays that year and each year thereafter.
