The City of Littleton, with support from the Littleton Business Chamber and the Historic Downtown Littleton Merchants Association, will launch Weekends on Main in the next couple of weeks, an outdoor seating plan for Main Street restaurants. The concept was created to help restaurants obtain additional seating outside to compensate for the seating lost inside due to social-distancing requirements.
Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic on Fridays at 3 p.m. and reopen Sundays at 9 p.m. so the street can be set up for al-fresco style dining. (Prince, Nevada, and Curtice Streets will remain open to maintain access to the businesses on those streets.) The million-plus lights on the trees in Downtown Littleton, normally seen only during the holidays, will be illuminated in the evenings. Participating restaurants include McKinners, Grand Station, The Tavern, Born to Bake, Olde Town Tavern, Pho Real, The ViewHouse, The Chocolate Therapist, Palenque, The Alley, Smokin Fins, In-Tea, Jake’s Brew Bar, and Curds/Nook Coffee. Each will serve food and beverages to diners on tables set in the street in front of their restaurant. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
The exact start date will be announced after state approval for extending the boundary of each restaurant’s liquor license into the street. For more information or an application on programs visit the Temporary Outdoor Business Operations webpage.
