Minneapolis bars can stay open until 4 a.m. for Super Bowl weekend

Bars in a few other cities will also have a later last call.

You'll be able to stay out and drink super late in Minneapolis – and a few other cities – during Super Bowl weekend. 

The Minneapolis City Council on Friday approved a resolution to allow bars near U.S. Bank Stadium to stay open until 4 a.m. from Feb. 2-5. 

Bars that are within the designated area have to apply for a special $250 permit to do so. 

This is only able to happen because the state Legislature passed a bill allowing cities in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area to decide if they want to issue special permits for the later last call. 

Minneapolis did this back in 2014 for the MLB All-Star Game too, and fans really took advantage.

Other cities will have later last calls, too 

Minneapolis isn't the only city that has voted to extend alcohol sales hours during Super Bowl weekend. 

Bloomington and Maple Grove will both allow special permits so bars can stay open later, while the City of Osseo is planning to vote on its resolution on Monday.

We're working on a list of all the cities that have passed such resolutions, so keep an eye on GoMN.com for an updated list.
