While Seattle moves into Phase 2 of the Safe Start Program, all of us at the Lake Union Café are taking precautions to make sure our staff and guests are safe & healthy.  Though some elements of your party may look different, we will do everything we can to make your event a fabulous celebration while maintaining safety guidelines.  

Here is what we are doing to keep our guests and staff safe:

  • With over 5,000 square feet, we have the ability to have events while social distancing.  For Phase 2 and 25% capacity we can host up to 70 guests, and in Phase 3 at 50% capacity we can do 130 guests.
  • Monitoring and adhering to all guidelines given by the CDC, L&I’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), WA State Department of Health, and Jay Inslee’s Safe Start Program.
  • Screening signs/symptoms of coronavirus and taking temperatures prior to starting a shift, wearing facial masks, regular handwashing, using gloves when removing used plates & glassware, assigning one server per section of tables.
  • Having hand sanitizer at entrance, bar, and bathrooms.
  • Keeping a log during events & dining disinfecting common surfaces every 20-30 minutes.
  • Maintaining social distancing between dining tables and limiting the number of guests per table to five.
  • Developing floor plans for socially distanced wedding ceremonies and assigned seating arrangements.
  • Increased sanitation measures with our Janitorial team after every day of operation.

Here are some things our Clients can do to promote the safety of their guests:

  • Maintain a log of guests attending the event (RSVPs).
  • Send a message to your guests that encourages them to wear facial masks when not eating or using the restroom.  Provide disposable masks for anyone who may have forgotten theirs.
  • Communicate to your guest list that seating arrangements have been made to encourage social distancing.
  • Ask that your guests do not attend if they are running a fever or have any symptoms of illness.

We sincerely Thank You for your continued support and understanding as we navigate this new “normal”.  We are excited to have guests in the house again after an awfully long 3 months!
