It is a little wonky depending on the shape of the city.

There’s a lot of debate around it and it might not pass.

The only places open after 2 are “private” clubs. Which basically means you need to pay a cover and write your email address down.
At Voyuer (the largest? after hours club in the city), you don't even have to write your email down, just pay a cover. They are usually open till 3:30am, and as late as 6am on special nights like Halloween and Pride.

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. That’s surprising.
I've experienced nightlife in Denver, Seattle, Dallas, and Boston. It was definitely harder to find open bars late in Boston compared to the other three. They're there but not as plentiful. And it's not like Denver, Seattle, and Dallas are late night cities.

Compared to Boston - Denver and Seattle in particular both seem to have more clusters of bar districts where most of the bars are open until 2. So the numbers from the OP aren't too surprising to me.

I’m glad to see Philly stepping up it’s game. But are these one-time payments or do they make you pay every night that you want to stay out later than 2?

I think with these new laws and the 24 hour subway service on weekends, Philly has potential to become one of the higher tier nightlife cities in the country.

If you type in specific borough names (ex: Manhattan, NY or Brooklyn, NY instead of NYC), it does a pretty decent job at isolating results, but there still seems to be a little bit of spillover. ex: typing in "Bronx, NY" seems to include far Upper Manhattan like Inwood. At the very least, it gives you a rough idea. I tried it out to see the different results from each borough: 1:15am is the first number, 3:30am the second.

Wednesday (Tuesday night)
1. Brooklyn: 2181 --> 945
2. Manhattan: 1899 --> 842
3. Queens: 1806 --> 876
4. The Bronx: 1265 --> 610

Wednesday Density per square mile
1. Manhattan: 81 --> 41
2. Brooklyn: 31 --> 13
3. The Bronx: 30 --> 15 (3:30am density higher than Brooklyn)
4. Queens: 17 --> 8

And I was interested in seeing how the numbers change on weekends. Here are the same times for Saturday (Friday night)
1. Brooklyn: 3024 --> 1569
2. Manhattan: 2573 --> 1416
3. Queens: 2481 --> 1453
4. The Bronx: 1727 --> 967

Saturday Density per square mile
1. Manhattan: 113 --> 62
2. Brooklyn: 43 --> 22
3. Bronx: 41 --> 23 (once again BX overtakes BK slightly after 3:30am)
4. Queens: 23 --> 13

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United...container_laws

It looks like there are other places outside NOLA and Vegas/Clark County, NV:
-Hood River, OR
-Butte, MT between 2am-8am
-Kansas City, MO in the Power & Lights District
-Memphis, TN on Beale street
-Savannah, GA as mentioned above
-Dalton, GA in a designated area downtown between 12:30pm and midnight
-Fredericksburg, TX on Main Street shopping district
-Canton, OH in a designated area
-Mobile, AL
-Tampa, FL on the river walk between 11am-1am

I didn’t know about any of these and some come as a surprise to me

But I asked about whole cities, and most of those have large caveats. Only allowed in certain areas and/or certain times.
