This weekend marks the end of daylight savings time, and everyone will have to “fall back” and turn their clocks back an hour.

While some of us see the time change as an opportunity for an extra hour of sleep, many want to know, “Will bars and pubs be allowed to sell drinks for an extra hour this Saturday night?” Good question.

Closing time for bars and clubs in Wichita is typically 2 a.m. because of a state law that prohibits the sale of by-the-drink alcoholic beverages between the hours of 2 a.m. and 9 a.m.

This Sunday morning, at exactly 2 a.m., we roll our clocks back an hour, so 2 a.m. becomes 1 a.m. and the director of the Kansas Alcoholic Beverage Control says local bars and establishments will be allowed to sell drinks for that extra hour Saturday night.

Whether or not the bar itself decides to stay open an extra hour is up to the business.
