As we continue to do our part to flatten the curve and physically distance, it’s natural for our minds to wander to the simple pleasures that we perhaps took for granted before this all began.
Eastlake Bar and Grill is making the most of the situation by providing customers with the wonderful opportunity to venture out of their homes and into one of its new private dining tents.
Restaurant owner John Schmidt was inspired by similar tents he’d seen shared online and decided to implement the idea in Seattle.

Schmidt has since shared a series of images on Facebook, revealing that the see-through tents fit up to two people at a time, and have two open walls, which allow for increased airflow.
“Under the umbrellas, they work well and as the sun sets they’re terrific. But yes, [under the] midday sun, they get a little warm,” Schmidt explained.
At night, the tents are lit with lanterns and feel like an oasis out of the city.
Those wanting to try out the new seating option can visit the Eastlake Bar and Grill from Monday to Friday, 11 am to 2 pm, 4 to 9 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 2 pm, and 4 to 9 pm.
