WHO MUST HAVE A SIDEWALK CAFÉ LICENSE?

A business must have a Sidewalk Café license and revocable consent if it operates a portion of a restaurant on a public sidewalk.There are three types of sidewalk cafés:

  • Enclosed sidewalk café: An enclosed area on the public sidewalk in front of the restaurant that is constructed predominantly of light materials such as glass, plastic, or lightweight metal.
  • Unenclosed sidewalk café: An outdoor area on the public sidewalk in front of the restaurant that contains removable tables and chairs.
  • Small unenclosed sidewalk café: An unenclosed sidewalk café containing no more than a single row of tables and chairs next to the building. The tables and chairs can occupy no more than 4 feet, 6 inches of the public sidewalk.
