New Year's Eve All Night Permit Deadline
The deadline for applying for an All-Night Permit for New Year’s Eve is Thursday, November 16, 2023.
On-premises licensees (bars, taverns, restaurants, etc.) seeking to remain open after the county closing hours on New Year’s Eve must file a permit application with the SLA at least 45 days prior to the event. Notice of the licensee’s intent to apply for the permit must be sent to the local police department or, if there is no local police department, to the County Sheriff’s Department. Notice must also be sent to the Local Community Board (New York City residents only) and proof that the notice was mailed to both the community board ad police department must be included with the application.
Within 10 days of receiving the application, the SLA’s Licensing Bureau will review each application based on criteria including the licensee’s disciplinary history and whether adequate security plans are in place for the event. If the Licensing Bureau denies the application, the licensee may request review of the decision by a Member of the Authority. A Member of the Authority will review the decision and make a final determination within 10 business days of receipt of the request.
