Oh Pennsylvania.  Last call is 1:30; bars close at 2.  You can only buy wine and liquor in state-run “wine and spirits shoppes”.   You can buy beer to go from certain bars and pizza places (in Philly and other bigger cities you can do a mix-a-six pack).  Some grocery stores have sections where you can buy beer as well.  Average cost of a six pack is about $15.  Otherwise, for beer, you have to buy a case from beer distributors.  It’s ridiculous.  We also mostly can’t get beer or wine shipped to our houses.


In New Husband, bars close at 1am, with last call at 12:30.  It feels SO EARLY!  You can buy beer and wine in the grocery store, but liquor is at the state run stores.

The local pub we usually go to closes at 1am on Friday and Saturday and I believe midnight on other days.  In the largest city near us the bars all close at 2am on the weekends.

I’m on a border, so 2 AM in one state and on the other side there are qiute a few bars in popular areas that are open until 3 AM. 

Some bars have a last call 30 min before closing and I’ve been to plenty that do not do this (usually smaller ones)

I’m pretty sure it’s 2, and they can stay open later if they get special permits from the city (the inauguration weekend always has 24 hour bars!)

PA is 2am like PP said.  But there are “after hour” places that stay open til 5 with special zoning approval or whatever.  Ive never been to an after hour place in the burbs, might be a city thing.

Happy Hour is definitely not illegal here!

In Montreal it’s 3am, afterhours are from 10pm to 12pm

ETA: after hours don’t serve alcohol, just water and energy drinks.

@sarahbabs:  I’m from Nola and they don’t really close unless the bar is dead and drink specials can go on all night. In baton rouge where I currently live bars close at 12 and drink specials have to end at 10
