As you probably already know, The Black Cat is a staple of Silver Lake. Under normal circumstances, it’s usually a very popular restaurant and dinner, attracting quite a lot of people every night. Of course, right now you won’t see anyone sitting on their bars or lining down Sunset in order to get in. Social distancing measures have limited the operations of restaurants and bars in order to protect the clientele. However, even though you can’t come in and revel in the unique atmosphere and tasteful decorations, you can still enjoy their delicious food in the new Black Cat outdoor dining area.
The Black Cat Outdoor Dining
The Black Cat is actually a lot more than just another Los Angeles restaurant. It has a long history that goes all the way back to the sixties. Back then, it used to be a bar. The venue saw one of the first instances of LGBT civil rights demonstrations, not just in Los Angeles, but in the whole country. In the subsequent decades, it went through different names and uses. In 2012, it reopened under its original name as a restaurant. If you have visited, you have probably seen photographs of its history and role in the 1967 manifestations displayed on its walls. The Black Cat is a declared Los Angeles historic-cultural monument. You can continue to enjoy their delicious food and support their wonderful restaurant at the Black Cat outdoor dining they’ve established in their parking lot.
Socially Distant Dining
When it comes to socially distant dining, it’s important to be very responsible. Even though the Black Cat outdoor dining allows for safe airflow and ventilation for diners, precautions are still needed. For example, remember to always keep your mask on until you get your food, especially when addressing your server. If you don’t feel like putting yourself out there, The Black Cat offers takeout and no-contact delivery through their website.
