Today Governor Bruce Rauner signed SB 398, allowing happy hour drink specials in Illinois, with certain restrictions.
Bars are now allowed to offer drink specials until 10pm as long as they offer them for four hours or less per day, with a cap of 15 hours per week. They also have to show their specials on a website or at the bar at least seven days in advance.
However, bars still cannot offer two-for-one drink specials or other similar deals.
Happy hour has been banned in Illinois (and Chicago) since 1989.
