Good news in downtown: @myclearwater is extending the closure of a portion of Cleveland Street in downtown to continue to allow more socially-distanced outdoor dining. 🚧🍴🌳

The closure began in May 2020 on the 400 and 500 blocks of Cleveland Street, and has been so successful in generating business downtown that the city has opted to extend the closure through April 16, 2021.

We remain committed to helping our restaurants provide a safe, outdoor dining experience downtown through this challenging time. New restaurants have opened, there is live music in the evenings, and local merchants have recently launched a new discount program. We hope if you come downtown, you enjoy a safe and fun atmosphere, whether you are dining in or ordering takeout.
