If you want to sip a martini at a rooftop or backyard bar, New York City could be shaking up the rules.

A proposed law would force all bars on rooftops and in rear yards to close by 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and by 10 p.m. every other night.

The bill is in response to community complaints about backyard establishments in Brooklyn Heights and Carroll Gardens.
