I think that only in Vegas and New Orleans could you start your night at 3:30, and even then your options would be limited on a Wednesday
Good point re: Vegas and New Orleans.

Another question: is it really possible that Boston only has half the number of bars open at 1:15am compared to solid - but not great - nightlife cities like Denver, Seattle, and Dallas? I saw on the map that Cambridge, Brookline, Somerville, etc. were all included and still only 167 vs around 400 for Dallas, Seattle and Denver. Thatís surprising.

I've been to Boston and the bars I've been to were all starting to shut down around that time (or a little later) even on weekends. From my limited experience, not a great nightlife city.

Even in Vegas, most clubs seem to shut down around 4, but there are after hours spots open. I'm not sure if any of the regular bars stay open later than that.

New Orleans bars seem to stay open as late as 5 or 6 on weekends, and I believe there some 24 hour spots but they're not the norm.

Yeah, itís interesting that New Orleans is towards the bottom half of the list when looking at number of bars open at 1:15 (because itís a relatively small city). But then at 3:30 its among the best.

Just to clarify - I didnít mean starting your night at 3:30. I just meant that itís crazy that there are nearly 1,000 open bars in NYC at 3:30.

Oh and are there any entire cities where open containers are allowed, besides Las Vegas and New Orleans?

Go Buffalo! lol, maybe that's why DLR wrote a song about Ladies night in Buffalo?

I doubt this will happen, but it would be cool. I feel there is a lot of untapped potential there.
People may not realize that the Albany area also has a 4 AM last call. So, that is another area that may surprise people in terms of the number of bars open after 1 AM.
