ATLANTA — Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed is giving you the opportunity to either celebrate or drown your sorrows Sunday night after the Super Bowl, depending on the outcome.

Reed signed a temporary executive order allowing bars in the Atlanta city limits to sell alcohol from 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5 to 2:30 a.m. Monday, Feb. 6.


“In celebration of the Atlanta Falcons winning the NFC Championship and our home team’s participation in Super Bowl LI, we have extended the hours alcohol can be served at City of Atlanta licensed businesses on February 5, Super Bowl Sunday,” said Mayor Kasim Reed. “It’s time to rise up, Atlanta, and we encourage everyone to rise up in a safe fashion.”
