From Monday, June 1, Victorian restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs will be able to reopen once again to dine-in customers. Since late March, hospitality venues have only been allowed to open for takeaway and delivery, but from June they'll be allowed up to 20 customers inside at any one time, with a maximum of one person per four square metres. You'll need to keep 1.5 metres between yourself and other guests and regularly wash your hands, too. While reopening for just 20 customers isn't financially viable for all eateries, some have decided to take the plunge. Some spots are walk-in (expect socially distant lines), some are bookings-only and some are just for private events — so check before heading in.
