Quebec to lift many restrictions on bars and restaurants as of Nov. 1

Oct 15, 2021

"It's definitely a step in the right direction," said Turbo Haüs's Sergio Da Silva, but many wonder why dancing and singing are still banned. Author of the article: Article content Restaurants and bar owners in Montreal say being able to operate their establishments at full capacity will be a positive step toward financial recovery. Advertisement Article content Health Minister Christian Dubé made the announcement Thursday evening, saying bars and restaurants across Quebec will be allowed to operate at maximum capacity as of Nov. 1.

Under the new mandate, the distance between restaurant tables will drop from two metres to one. Tables will be limited to a maximum of 10 people or the occupants of three private residents. Customers will still be required to present their vaccination passports and wear masks when moving around a bar or restaurant. Bans on dancing and singing will remain in place, but regular operating hours will return, meaning bars can stay open until 3 a.m. “It’s definitely a step in the right direction,” said Sergio Da Silva, co-owner of Turbo Haüs, an alt-rock venue on St-Denis St. “It’s definitely good going back to 3 a.m., not only for me but also for people who work in the industry. It allows us to have more than one shift in a day and that allows more people to work.” Advertisement Article content Turbo Haüs is a bar and a music venue, and the continuing bans on singing and dancing will hurt, Da Silva said. “What we saw with the Bell Centre (the Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin concert last weekend) was definitely a good first step to get people in the music industry back to work. It was good to see things getting started again. I don’t have a problem with what happened at the Bell Centre specifically — I think it was good. It’s just weird to see a government say it’s still about health measures when you have 15,000 people in an arena, but I can’t have 100 people standing in my bar. “Shows starting again is a good thing. The show happening at the Bell Centre was a good thing. A lot of people haven’t been able to work for months and to see that light at the end of the tunnel is great. But it’s like, you just can’t have one set of rules for one person and another set of rules for people who are a lot less likely to cause an issue.” Advertisement Article content Renaud Poulin, president of the Corporation des Propriétaires de Bars, Brasseries et Tavernes du Québec, said he was informed of the government’s decision Thursday afternoon. “It’s good news but it is a first step,” Poulin said. “There are certain measures that will remain in place, but still, it will help a lot of establishments.” Éric Le François — who co-owns a dozen bars, including Bar de Courcelle and Le Drinkerie Ste. Cunégonde — said he is happy to take things one step at a time. “The real progress will be when people are allowed to dance and sing karaoke,” Le François said. “But it will especially be good to remain open until 3 a.m. again.” For Peter Sergakis, president of the Union des Tenanciers de Bars du Québec and the owner of many establishments in Montreal, said the changes can’t come soon enough. “We don’t want to wait until the first of November. I think it should happen this weekend and all the restrictions should be lifted,” Sergakis said. “At the Bell Centre people are sitting one next to the other. They drink and eat and they were dancing to Ricky Martin on stage (at the Bell Centre) with no masks on. “We want the dancing to return and we want people to be able to sing.” Share this Story: Quebec to lift many restrictions on bars and restaurants as of Nov. 1
