NASHUA — Last call in the Gate City will remain at 1 a.m. after a proposal to extend it to 2 a.m. failed to win support from a committee of aldermen.

According to the Union Leader, Alderman Ben Clemons recommended the change, saying the later hour would allow Nashua businesses to compete with bars in Massachusetts that remain open later.

Alderman-at-Large Michael O’Brien said the city should give it a try, arguing it could liven up the downtown.

But Alderman June Caron said the only community in New Hampshire with a 2 a.m. last call is Berlin, noting that Manchester and Portsmouth haven’t even attempted it. If the shift really was beneficial, she said these larger cities would have adopted the change long ago.
