Outdoor Seating

The City of Naperville has relaxed outdoor seating regulations in an attempt to help Naperville bars and restaurants reopen for outdoor dining as allowed in Phase 3 of the Governor's Restore Illinois plan.

Through an executive order signed on May 28, 2020, the City amended its Municipal Code to allow for outdoor seating without a permit and published detailed guidelines for bars and restaurants that want to expand or temporarily add outdoor seating areas.

As outlined in the documents below, a permit is required if a bar or restaurant’s temporary outdoor seating area will include liquor service or use public property.
