No Happy Hours in Naperville

The Naperville Liquor Commission voted yesterday to continue not to allow happy hour in Naperville. After receiving a restaurant request, the commission considered lifting a local rule barring happy hours. In 2015 Governor Bruce Rauner lifted a statewide ban on happy hours, but Naperville chose to continue the restriction locally. Several commissioners stated they do not believe Naperville businesses are hurt by the rule against happy hour.
