KYLE, Texas (KXAN) — Bar and restaurant owners in Kyle are raising a glass to a new ordinance that will now allow them to sell mixed beverages, including beer and wine, until 2 a.m.

The ordinance passed on second reading at the Kyle City Council on Tuesday. In order for the business to sell until 2 a.m., the establishment must have a mixed beverage permit as well as a late hours mixed beverage permit from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.

City officials said the change will allow Kyle businesses to compete with nearby cities that already sell until 2 a.m. Before this law, businesses had to stop serving at midnight.
