Don’t want to end the party? Come to Bogota and soon you might be able
to keep the party going all night long, the mayor’s office of Bogota is
Secretary of the Mayor’s Office Clara Lopez, who
previously led efforts to regulate clandestine places that stayed open
past the city’s 3 a.m. last call, has proposed to keep bars and clubs
open 24 hours a day in certain areas of Bogota.
“It’s one thing to
allow all 49,500 businesses to stay open 24 hours and it’s another to have
10 or 15 places with a special license,” argued the secretary.
Lopez said that her proposal will have to be taken to congress and enacted into law in order for it to take effect.
The licenses would be granted under a legal process with parameters that guarantee fairness to all who apply, explained Lopez.
