Remember, bars can stay open past 2 a.m. on NYE

A perk of living in Baltimore: Bars are permitted to stay open until 2 a.m. Jan. 2., thanks to a decades-old city law. Yes, that means the doors can stay open for more than 30 hours straight. Here are some bars taking advantage of the law:

Smaltimore (2522 Fait Ave., Canton): Open to the public after 1 a.m. and not closing.

No Idea Tavern (1649 S. Hanover St., Federal Hill): $40 for top-shelf open bar from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Not closing.   

Don't Know Tavern (1453 Light St., Federal Hill): $60 for top-shelf open bar from 9 p.m. to midnight, all-you-can-eat buffet. Tickets available here. Doors stay open until "no one's left standing," according to Don't Know's website.

Alexander's Tavern (710 S. Broadway, Fells Point): $80 for top-shelf open bar from 8 p.m.-3 a.m., buffet from 8-11 p.m. Email for tickets.
