GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A major change takes effect this week for late-night bars in unincorporated areas of Greenville County. Last call is coming sooner because of an ordinance that requires those establishments to close at 2 a.m.

Deputy Sean Zukowsky with the public information office of the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office says enforcement will begin after midnight Thursday.

He says, “Primarily it will be through random spontaneous checks and evaluations of the establishments. There will be a consistent review of which establishments are complying and which are not. Going forward we’ll know which ones we need to keep a closer eye on.”

Han Choi, owner of World Cup Billiards on Whitehorse Road says, “It affects a lot of businesses. It also affects a lot of people who get off at night or work second or third shift.”

Choi says his business won’t be impacted very much because they usually close by 3 a.m. anyway, but he has concerns about venues losing out on late-night revenues and having to cut staff.

“There are going to be a lot of businesses shutting down because of this and going out of business,” says Choi.
