A running list of LA restaurants that require proof of vaccine for indoor dining

As the delta variant of the coronavirus continues to roam Los Angeles County, affecting unvaccinated people the hardest, some in the restaurant and bar community are increasingly pushing to switch to a customer request for vaccinated customers only. This would mean checking the vaccination status of every guest and drinker (as well as checking IDs to make sure everyone at the bar is 21 or older) before they are served; no small feat for a workforce already burned out from a major nationwide reopening, long hours, historically low wages, and the occasional hostile customers.

Still, some believe that just getting a vaccination (at least for indoor eating) or having a recent negative COVID-19 test is the only way to contain the continued spread of the coronavirus and keep the same employees safe. because the delta variant has been shown to be transferable in some fully vaccinated individuals. It’s worth noting that these bars and restaurants aren’t alone: ​​quite a few entire regions, particularly New York City, have already begun mandating vaccinations for indoor dining (and many other indoor public experiences). On the spot, the city of Palm Springs decided to do the same, according to the LA Times.

So which restaurants and bars have started the transition? It’s a moving target as more and more places announce their vaccination-only plans on social media, but here are at least most of the places that have made the decision so far. To take a look at the first list of bars that go live with vaccination requirements, there’s also a handy selection of locations at LA Taco.
