New “Dine Out Downtown” Program To Offer Diners Safe/Unique Option For Takeout

   Effective immediately, the city of Las Vegas is closing California Ave. between Main St. and Casino Center Blvd., and 6th St. between Fremont St. and Carson Ave. to vehicular traffic between the hours of 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. every day. These half-block closures will be done to facilitate a new program called “Dine Out Downtown,” where tables, chairs, pop-up shade covers and portable trees will be placed outside to accommodate takeout dining. This area will follow the state of Nevada social distancing recommendations for tables, chairs and other furniture. The program will run through Phases 1 and 2* of the state of Nevada orders.


     Guests will be able to purchase takeout food and drink from downtown restaurants in the area and safely bring the food to one of the tables. City staff will be on hand to clean and disinfect the tables and chairs between uses.


     The program will allow more people to enjoy the restaurants and eateries in the downtown, and practice social distancing at the same time.
