IMPORTANT INFORMATION (updated 18th October 2021) - Arcobar respects the health and safety of both staff & patrons equally - and strives to meet the highest standards of implementation of the hospitality industry COVIDsafe plan & MUSIC VICTORIA COVIDsafe event plan.
We are glad to be welcoming everyone back into our restaurant, and we are aware of the huge responsibility we have as a venue to ensure we provide the highest standards of a COVIDsafe environment, not only for our guests, but also for our team. As such, Arcobar has put into place some strict COVID control measures, which we ask everyone to respect as a condition of entry. This includes the requirement to collect name & contact details of each patron via the Victorian State Government QR system. We recommend you pre-download the Services Victoria app to complete your registration. A manual system is available for those who require.
Current DHHS & State Government COVID guidelines require that ALL PATRONS provide proof of double vaccination as a condition of entry. As at 18th October 2021, Arcobar can confirm ALL STAFF have received at least one jab, and that our venue complies with all DHHS, State Government, Federal Government & VCGLR directives.
Until otherwise advised, we have a limit for outdoor seating of 50 people, and an indoor capacity of 20 people.
State Government requirements mean masks are required to be worn both inside & outside the premises, except whilst seated and eating or drinking. Customers are not allowed to congregate at the bar area, and no dancing is permitted.
Importantly, arcobar will do whatever it needs to, to ensure the return of live music. It is not for us to agree or disagree with the rules that we are required to work within, rather it is our opportunity to get live music going again as quickly as possible - and artists earning money again. As such, we ask you respect our COVIDsafe plan, which requires all patrons to remain in their allocated seat (unless going to the toilet), and ensure that you wear your mask as required.
If you are unsure about the ongoing changes of regulations & requirements - please ask - and we will be happy to help.
We do ask however that you treat our staff with respect, as they do not make the rules, rather they have been asked to enforce the rules that we are required to abide by in order to open.
