Tampa officially repeals Blue Laws just in time for Super Bowl festivities


The City of Tampa has officially repealed its Blue Laws which opens up liquor sales on Sunday mornings — all just in time for Super Bowl LV.

Previously, residents needed to wait until 11am to enjoy something spirited when they were out and about in the city of Tampa. The new ordinance allows alcohol sales at restaurants and stores in Tampa beginning at 7am. 

Anyone else ready to start brunch a little bit early? 

Just in time for the Super Bowl festivities

This shift could certainly prove inviting for those looking to celebrate the Super Bowl in the city of Tampa this February.

Our neighbors in St. Petersburg revised their “Blue Laws” back in 2017 to allow for liquor sales earlier.
