BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. (WESH) — At H & D’s Roadhouse in Merritt Island, and like many bars across Brevard County, closing time is at 2 a.m.
That’s been the cut-off for alcohol sales at all bars and restaurants across the area until recently.
Brevard County commissioners voted Monday to lift sale restrictions from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m., essentially allowing sales around the clock.
Now H & D’s could open or close any time owner Harry Vigliano wants.
“I think it could be a possibility to stay open. I’m going to have to sit and look at things and crunch some numbers together,” Vigliano said.
The new rules would affect H & D’s because it’s in unincorporated Brevard County. However, but places inside city limits, like Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and Melbourne, would not be affected.
