Ribbon Cutting Ceremony For “OUT on Robertson”

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Saturday May 1st to commemorate the newest OUT on Robertson program in West Hollywood. 

In August 2020, the City of West Hollywood began its OUT Zones program, by offering streamlined approval for businesses to use sidewalks, on-street parking spaces, and private parking lots as areas to expand operations. 

The program now expands with OUT on Robertson, a pilot program that closes N. Robertson Boulevard south of Santa Monica Boulevard and north of Melrose Avenue to vehicular traffic each Saturday and Sunday in order to transform the restaurant/retail area into a pedestrian zone with COVID-19 safety protocols as the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announces reopening guidelines allowing for higher numbers of patrons.

OUT on Robertson will embrace, on weekends, what compact OUT Zones throughout the City have been offering for months: a place to enjoy sunny days and balmy nights while maintaining social distance, aligning with health and safety protocols, and supporting community businesses.

OUT on Robertson will give people who live, work, and play in West Hollywood more opportunities to stay outside under palm trees by day and starry skies at night, all while enjoying the best of what West Hollywood has to offer. People exploring West Hollywood’s OUT on Robertson are reminded that the City of West Hollywood has a mandatory face-covering requirement and people are urged to be mindful of maintaining six feet of social distance for dining, shopping, and personal care under the sun and stars.

OUT Zones are marked by colorful signage with spots to “Dine OUT” for restaurants and cafes, “Shop OUT” for boutiques and goods, and “Werk OUT” for exercise and personal care.

The most up-to-date list of participating OUT Zone businesses can be found at www.weho.org/outzones.
