Starting Monday, bars and restaurants in New York can stay open until midnight, an hour later than the 11 p.m. curfew that’s been in place for several months.
Just last week, Cuomo faced pushback for extending the 11 p.m. curfew into May, after the original executive order expired. Many business owners and local leaders criticized the extension, saying it was continuing to hurt an already struggling restaurant industry.
Cuomo also changed the curfew for events at catering halls, which will move from midnight to 1 a.m.
The State Liquor Authority has already extended alcohol-to-go options for bars and restaurants to May 6.
