Some bars and breweries will be allowed to reopen May 27, provided they served food before the pandemic as several South Florida cities reopen their restaurant scene. Those bars with food service licenses will be allowed to seat customers again, though they still must restrict capacity to no more than 50 percent and follow all CDC guidelines laid out in the restaurant reopening process.
Venues that are strictly bars and do not have a food service license cannot reopen yet, according to the county’s New Normal plan.
Last week, on May 18, Miami-Dade County allowed restaurants, retail stores and salons to reopen with restrictions. But several municipalities, including Miami, Miami Beach and Hialeah, banded together to delay opening retail until May 20 and restaurants until May 27.
But don’t expect to grab a stool at your favorite watering hole.
Restaurants with a bar area must keep the bar closed during this phase of reopening. Counters will be closed for seating. Bars with restaurant licenses will have to provide seating like a standard restaurant with tables six feet apart, said spokespersons for the county and and Miami Beach.
