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. You may request free face masks at indy.gov/masks.
As of July 24, these Indianapolis attractions are open at 25 percent capacity with social distancing guidelines in place. Please be sure to check individual attraction websites for their re-opening timeline and COVID-19 protocols.
Restaurants are able to operate at 50 percent capacity indoors, and 75 percent capacity outdoors, which means you'll be able to dine anywhere from indoors at St. Elmo Steak House to the patio at Gallery Pastry Shop (pictured above). Restaurants must close between 12 am and 5 am daily. Bars and nightculbs are closed until at least August 12.
