10 P.M. closing time for all Nashville bars and restaurants
Jul 24, 2020
Chief Medical Director of Health Michael C. Caldwell issued an order closing dining rooms at all food service establishments at 10 p.m. each evening, beginning this Friday, July 24, 2020.
Mayor Cooper announced the new closing time earlier in the week, citing crowding on Lower Broad.
This means that restaurants and bars, including restaurants and bars at hotels, must close at 10 p.m. We got clarification that the order applies to hotels, and any other food service establishment located inside a larger facility.
The order specifies that “all customers shall be off-premise and the premise closed to the public at 10 p.m.” This doesn’t mean that 10 p.m. is last call - everyone needs to be out the door by 10 p.m.
After 10 p.m., restaurants and bars are limited to takeout, drive through, curbside and off-premise delivery of food. No alcohol after 10 pm.
Limited service license holders and beer only permittees are closed through July 31, 2020. Read more at our post here.
Semisonic seems apt:
One last call for alcohol so finish your whiskey or beer.
You don't have to go home but you can't stay here
