Dining on the Spot program in Downtown

An outdoor dining initiative in West Palm Beach to help the local restaurant industry after COVID-19

Dining on the Spot program in Downtown

Known as “Dining on the Spot,” the program repurposes some roads in the downtown area to accommodate recreation and outdoor dining with safe physical distancing.

This is a collaborative new effort by West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA), the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and the City of West Palm Beach to give everyone more room to succeed during these difficult times.

“Dining on the Spot” is being rolled out in phases.

Locations in the program are open from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. and available to dining patrons only, and require regular cleaning protocols on a set schedule, table reservations to prevent wait lines.

The first locations are the 200 block of Clematis Street, 100 block of Datura Street, 100 North Clematis Street, and in the passageway behind Field of Greens in the 400 block.

The plan will also accommodate expansions of seating for restaurants in the 300 block of Clematis, and additionally in the newly refurbished alley that runs parallel to Clematis Street’s 300 block, as well as the alley on the north side of the 500 block, which is currently under construction. Other areas under consideration for closure to pedestrian-only are the CityZen Garden on Datura Street and Dixie Highway and the Alexander Art Park at Fern and Dixie Highway.
