As restaurants begin to reopen, we will not be reopening Venue 45, due mainly to the restrictions regarding capacity. As plenty of people have already pointed out regarding our industry, many restaurants need to fill their tables day in and day out in order to be profitable. Venue 45 is no different. We simply cannot make enough money to operate while having our capacity slashed by such a large percentage.
This is in no way a comment on whether or not those restrictions are needed or not, that’s not our area of expertise. It’s simply a matter of math for us, and right now the math doesn’t add up for us to open.
We will continue to look towards public health officials for guidance on when increases in capacity might happen, and will do our best to keep everyone in the loop.
As always we appreciate everyone’s understanding, and please know that we are not taking these steps lightly. Ultimately we have the health and safety of our patrons and staff, as well as the long term viability of the restaurant, in mind when making these choices.
Thank you 🙏 ❤️
