Indy's hospitality community has completed the Hoosier Hospitality Promise, in partnership with the Indiana Restaurant & Lodging Association and health officials across the state. When you see this endorsement, you can be certain that the venue is taking all necessary steps to protect their employees and customers and that they are taking a leadership role in protecting their community.
In effort to keep Indy’s reopening stages safely progressing, the city has mandated that residents and visitors are required to wear masks in any indoor space or outdoor space. The masks can be removed while eating at a restaurant. The mask order excludes children under the age of 3, as well as anyone with a medical condition that prevents the use of a mask. Marion County residents may request free face masks at indy.gov/masks.
These Indianapolis attractions are open at 50% capacity with social distancing guidelines in place. Please be sure to check individual attraction websites for their re-opening timeline and COVID-19 protocols.

Bars and restaurants must close between 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. daily.
