Open San ClementeDaily Open Air Dining on Avenida Del Mar

To energize San Clemente businesses, the SCDBA has worked with the City of San Clemente to plan and facilitate a plan whereby restaurants can expand outdoors in keeping with the State of California's mandated indoor dining restrictions. To participate, restaurants are encouraged to contact us (info@scdba.org) for information, permit and insurance requirements.

Come enjoy a delicious open-air meal in downtown San Clemente!

Restaurant managers, these are the form required to serve outdoors:

Promenade on Del Mar is a Sunday Avenida Del Mar traffic closure under consideration by the City of San Clemente in partnership with the San Clemente Downtown Business Association.

The idea is to enable businesses and restaurants to serve more customers by closing Sunday car traffic, turning Avenida Del Mar into a promenade. This will allow merchants to bring items outside and restaurants to serve customers outdoors. We'll start with one Sunday (TBD) and add more if the concept is well-received.

Many cities worldwide and in our nearby communities are enacting similar plans to take advantage of our great weather while acknowledging safe physical distancing recommendations.

Got questions?

If you are a merchant or restaurant manager in Downtown San Clemente and want more information about Promenade on Del Mar, or want to receive the two forms required to participate, please inquire via email to info@scdba.org.
