Philadelphia Streetery License Guide – Outdoor Dining Program

On October 19, the City of Philadelphia announced details regarding its outdoor dining program including the permanent regulations for streeteries, a type of outdoor dining to occupy a designated portion of the parking lane on authorized city streets in front of an eligible restaurant for their outdoor dining operations.

The streetery regulations were diligently developed at the forefront of a complex interagency planning process that balances the needs of the city’s right-of-way and all of its public users. Streetery dining is a privilege for restaurants as an enhancement to their seating capacity.

Business owners with questions about applying for or operating outdoor dining can contact the Department of Commerce’s Office of Business Services via email or call (215) 683-2100. Residents may call 3-1-1 to report businesses conducting activities related to outdoor dining that appear to be unsafe.

The outdoor dining post is available for upcoming updates.
