Welcome to Downtown!

Sidewalk Cafes in Downtown

We encourage the installation of sidewalk seating to increase public space use, enjoyment, and safety. With proper design and management, seating can also be a great way to encourage walking, add vitality to the street, and promote local economic development. Sidewalk cafés and tables-and-chairs setups are integral forms of right-of- way seating.

Sidewalk cafes are encouraged in Renton’s Downtown. Click here for the guidelines to assist property and business owners in setting them up.
