WARSAW, Poland — Restaurants, bars and pubs in Poland plan to open their doors to dine-in customers for the first time in seven months on Saturday.
That means many business owners will open to customers at midnight between Friday and Saturday, expecting many people will rush to enjoy a night on the town.
Pandemic restrictions limited restaurants, cafes and other establishments to offering only take-away food and drinks since last fall. Not all of them have financially survived.
More restaurants in Warsaw are creating outdoor seating while ensuring that physical distancing can be maintained between tables.
Vaccinations are finally picking up in Poland as the numbers of new infections and hospitalizations have decreased in recent weeks.
