Town blocks the streets in downtown Las Vegas for al fresco eating underneath pop-up tents

The city of Las Vegas has closed parts of two streets in Fremont East and the Arts District for outdoor dining. The city’s new Dine Out Downtown features pop-up shade covers, tables, and chairs with a view of social distance. Guests can order takeaway from neighboring restaurants and sit at tables from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily for al fresco dining.

The new pop-up street dining takes place on California Avenue between Main Street and Casino Center Boulevard in the Arts District, with about a dozen canopies, and on Sixth Street between Fremont Street and Carson Avenue, where another dozen Canopies are waiting for the guests.

City staff are available to clean and disinfect tables and chairs between uses.

The city says the initiative will remain in effect during the first and second phases of Governor Steve Sisolak’s plan to reopen the state to business. Governor Steve Sisolak allowed the restaurants to reopen with dine-in service on May 9th. His new policy will remain in effect until May 30th, when he may reopen more parts of the state for business. In the meantime, many restaurants offer take-away meals to keep their businesses open. Casinos and bars will remain closed. Nevada is in the first phase of reopening.

Last week the City of Las Vegas allowed restaurants to add sidewalk seating. Restaurants can temporarily expand their dining rooms outside of a narrow area that spans the Arts District, Fremont East, and the heart of downtown Las Vegas.
