Sydney looks set to reopen on October 11, once 70 per cent of the state’s eligible population is fully vaccinated. That date is contingent on hitting the vaccination threshold, but businesses will be allowed to trade once that milestone is reached.

Hospitality venues will be allowed to reopen, with one person per four square metres allowed inside and one person per two square metres outside. Bonus: drinking while standing will be allowed outside.

Your favourite venues have spent months either closed or serving stripped-back takeaway-only menus. Some of them have closed for good. But many of them are coming right back and can’t wait to see you. If you’re comfortable doing so, it’s time to get out there and support them. Check this live list to see which restaurants are coming back when, and what special things they have planned to mark the occasion.

Is your venue taking bookings again? Let us know here.
