The Dining Under the Lights program has now expanded to Friday nights! It will run every Thursday and Friday night, from now to the end of October. We were able to expand it because of the overwhelming support of the local community in maintaining safe distances and wearing masks, except while eating.
Fourth Street will be closed to traffic for alfresco on-street dining on Thursdays & Fridays from 5–9 pm. Making the best of social distancing, restauranteurs arrange tables on the street for a romantic European feel under the glimmering new overhead Tivoli lights.
Several restaurants and bars are also serving daily meals outside on their sunny sidewalks or patios during their usual business hours and many are still offering take out and delivery. Please check with your favorite restaurant for hours and reservation requirements. “Know before you go!”
The San Rafael Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) spearheaded the overhead lights and on-street dining programs, with great planning and fast action from many departments of the City of San Rafael. We are extremely grateful for their monumental support. Thank you to the SRPD as well.
Marin residents and business owners are encouraged to enjoy our amazing and resilient restaurants often, but especially on Thursday & Friday nights.
