Outdoor Dining Compliance Information

By NYC Hospitality Alliance

There will be close monitoring and enforcement of the provided guidelines by the government tonight especially and moving forward.

The NYC Hospitality Alliance team is happy to see outdoor dining bringing a sense of vibrancy back to NYC. With that, we find it of upmost importance that you continue to keep your staff and customers safe while staying compliant with the City and State regulations coming from the SLA, DOT, DOH and other government agencies.

There will be close monitoring and enforcement of the provided guidelines by the government tonight especially and moving forward. Depending on the behavior observed, it can impact future flexibility and possible regulations for our industry throughout the five boroughs.

Patrons and restaurant and bar owners across NYC share the responsibility of helping to prevent another spike in Covid-19 cases as we're seeing in other states and cities around the nation. Our City and businesses have come too far to cut down on our progress now.

We are in this together and below you will find information to help restaurant and bar operators to continue to operate responsibly.

Requirements Include but are not limited to:
  • Physical distancing
  • All employees wear acceptable face coverings.
  • Patrons wear face coverings, except while seated.
  • To-go alcohol must be accompanied by a food order.
  • No bars on the street.
  • Individuals you serve should not congregate and consume alcohol around your business, unless seated in your approved outdoor dining area.
  • Outdoor tables must be six feet apart.
  • You may not operate enclosed sidewalk cafes.
  • Compliance with the City Noise Code as it relates to music being heard on the pubic sidewalk.
