“Dining on the Spot,” a new initiative brought on by the West Palm Beach DDA launched this weekend on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm.
This initiative will close down the city streets (mainly on Clematis Street), parking lots and alleys — and transform them into an expanded seating area for restaurants. This will allow for small groups or members of the same family to sit together — and will allow for the 6-feet spacing between guests. This plan will be rolled out in phases and has already begun.
Dining on the Spot Phases
200 block of Clematis Street, 100 block of Datura Street, 100 North Clematis Street, passageway behind Field of Greens in the 400 block
300 block of Clematis Street, the newly refurbished alley that runs parallel to Clematis Street’s 300 block, the alley on the north side of the 500 block (currently under construction)
400 and 500 blocks, which are currently under construction – though seating is available behind the restaurants on these blocks in the alleys and adjacent lots
Also under consideration
CityZen Garden on Datura Street and Dixie Highway and the Alexander Art Park at Fern and Dixie Highway.
Details for Dining on the Spot
Locations will be open from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. for dining patrons only.
Other safety precautions include: regular cleaning protocols on a set schedule; table reservations to avoid waiting lines; servers and diners are required to wear masks, except when eating; and a strict six-foot separation between backs of chairs.
