The restaurant opens at 50 percent capacity with a combination of socially-distanced dining room and bar room seating. Guests for the restaurant and inside bar will enter through a security checkpoint at the base of the front stairs for ID and temperature checks.

Inside the restaurant, the Country Club says it installed a new HVAC system that reduces 99.9 percent of bacteria and viruses from the air filtered through the ventilation system.

Guests are required wear face masks when in close space, when using restrooms and upon entering and exiting the premises. The Country Club reveals a complete list of general safety procedures here.

Fans of the popular drag brunch will have to wait a little longer. While the spot will still offer weekend brunch, there will not be drag brunches until clearance from the City and state for live entertainment regulations. There will also be no bottomless mimosas or bloody mary bar at this time.


For those looking for a place to cool off, the Country Club also reopens its pool at 25 percent capacity, which is equivalent to 100 people. The hot tub, sauna, and locker room will be open provided social distancing practices are observed. Showers are still closed until further clarification from the city.

Daily pool rates are $15, or you can purchase an annual membership pass for $299.

Guests can also expect check-in stations for IDs, temperature checks and bag checks/searches.

The Country Club will open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. for the foreseeable future.
