WASHINGTON — The 2022 FIFA World Cup kicks off Sunday in Qatar, and bars and restaurants all over Washington D.C. have got you covered – even outside regular hours.

Generally, businesses in D.C. may serve alcohol between 8 a.m. and 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, it's 8 a.m. to 3 a.m. On Sunday, it's 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.

This year, more than 100 businesses in the D.C. area requested special permits to allow them to serve alcohol outside of normal serving hours. 

Businesses that applied for temporary licenses for the World Cup may operate 24 hours a day and sell and serve alcohol between 6 a.m. and 4 a.m. starting Sunday until Dec. 18.

While we don't know what everyone has planned to take advantage of the temporarily extended hours, here's who in D.C. was approved to do so:

Residents who found their favorites on the list should reach out to the bar or restaurant to find out what their plans are.
