City Repeals Its Emergency Order Prohibiting on-Premise Alcohol Sales After 10 P.m. 

The City of Boulder has repealed emergency order 2020-21, issued on Sept. 24, which prohibited alcohol sales at bars, restaurants and clubs between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. 

On-premises alcohol service may now end at 11 p.m. at bars, restaurants and clubs in Boulder, per a State of Colorado order. Last call for alcohol purchases is tied to the county’s dial level, which is determined by the state’s Safer at Home order. Boulder County is currently at Level 2 on the dial. 

Due to the improving metrics for COVID-19 in the City of Boulder and Boulder County Public Health easing its gathering restrictions order from Level C to the less restrictive Level A, Boulder City Manager Jane Brautigam has signed the amended order today, Oct. 14, 2020. The order takes effect at 5 p .m. 

The city, in partnership with health officials, will continue to monitor and provide updates on COVID-19 and reminds the community to follow all recommended COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, as well as state and local orders. Visit for the latest information.
