South Beach businesses put up big money against Miami Beach’s effort to change last call

Published

on

Miami Beach voters will decide this November whether to stop the sale of alcohol at 2 a.m., moving last call at bars and clubs up from 5 a.m.

South Beach nightclubs will put up hundreds of thousands of dollars to stop a ballot referendum.

They face off against the political teams and supporters of the current and former mayor, who hope voters limit partying hours. 

The measure on the ballot in November is non-binding but would be a clear sign of public opinion to the city commission.

The nightlife on South Beach generates millions of dollars and employs a few thousand people.

It also brings crowds, rowdiness, and crime, disturbing neighborhoods on the barrier island.
