Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Seattle Bars Will Stop Indoor Seating Indefinitely Starting July 30th
Governor Inslee announced some more updates to restaurant and bar restrictions.
Written by

Much like a Rube Goldberg machine or the hit musical Hamilton, a lot of things just happened within a very short period of time. Specifically regarding restaurants in Seattle. So we put together a neat bulleted list of everything that you need to know based on Governor Inslee’s latest announcement.

As of July 30th:

  • All bars in Seattle must stop indoor seating indefinitely, regardless of whether or not they serve food. Only outdoor service is allowed.
  • But what's the definition of "bar" here? According to the Washington Hospitality Association, "A bar is considered a tavern license, winery license, brewery license or distillery license." Beverage-forward restaurants that don't serve minors are not bars.
  • Alcohol service will end at 10pm daily for all restaurants and bars.
  • For restaurants with indoor service, people from different households cannot sit at the same table.
  • But people from different households can sit at the same table if it’s outside.
  • We’re still in Phase Two. But Phase Three headcounts have been adjusted - restaurant dining rooms can only be at 50% capacity (instead of 75%).
