Downtown Houston bars gets OK to close to vehicle traffic to serve food and drinks outdoors

HOUSTON, TX – On Wednesday, city council members approved an ordinance that would allow bars and restaurants to use unutilized, outdoor street space to serve food and drinks to customers, while also keeping social distancing guidelines in mind.

The Main Street ordinance, proposed under the “More Spaces” plan that was approved back in August, will require the strip of the roadway to close to vehicle traffic.

Businesses will simply be required to submit their plans on how they will operate.

Details of the approved ordinance also include:

  • Allow restaurants and bars to serve customers by establishing temporary enclosures and setting up tables and chairs.
  • Establish no fee for businesses to participate in this program.
  • Continue the program through March 31, 2022.
