Two Nashville bars could possibly serve alcohol for 23 hours a day in a bill passed by the Tennessee Senate.

On Thursday Senators voted in a 21-5 vote to let The Diner in the Broadway entertainment district and the Scoreboard Bar & Grill in the Opryland area to pour drinks for the majority of the day.

The bill requires that liquor service cease from 3 a.m until 4 a.m.

Under current law alcohol service must be halted between 3 a.m and 8 a.m.

The bill will soon return to the House due to an amendment.
