CINCINNATI -- This weekend's daylight saving time clock change means less revelry at Tri-State bars.

The Ohio Department of Commerce's Division of Liquor Control says bar clocks must abide by the time change — which means setting clocks ahead one hour at 2 a.m.

Since closing time is 2:30 a.m. in Ohio, bars must cease alcohol sales before the clock ticks from 1:59 a.m. to 3 a.m.

“When the clock strikes 2 a.m. on Sunday morning, the time will spring forward and be 30 minutes past the legal closing time for bars are restaurants, said Bruce Stevenson, Superintendent of the Ohio Division of Liquor Control. “All sales and consumption of alcohol at those establishments must cease before the time change."

Keep in mind most Kentucky bars close at 2 a.m. and the majority of Indiana bars close at 3 a.m.
