Yes we're open! Kunming cafés and restaurants starting up after virus

By in News on

After a Spring Festival 'holiday' that went on for much longer than we anticipated — thanks to the Covid-19 virus — we are happy to announce that many businesses are once again opening their doors to customers. Service may be limited to takeaway, business hours might be different, so here is a handy list to direct you back to your favorite places. This has been a difficult time for entrepreneurs and customers alike so let's hope we will soon enjoy a vibrant wining and dining scene in Kunming once again.

Some bars have opened again but clubs and museums will be closed until further notice. When they reopen we'll update the article and include their operating times.

Any businesses not listed below should feel free to post their schedules in the comment section at the bottom of the article. Those listed who may further alter hours or services available can get in touch via the GoKunming contact form or email vera [at] gokunming [dot] com.

There are rules that establishments must follow in order to welcome guests:

— Everyone must scan the QR code upon entering and leaving
— Everyone must have their temperature checked
— Everyone must wear a mask when not eating or drinking
— There will be limited seating at tables and tables must be at least one meter apart

Everyone, please help the owners of the restaurants and cafes by following these rules.

Full Cup Café is now open

Starting today Salvador's will be open 10 am till 10 pm with last call at 9:30

^Great news!

Today, Salvador's Coffee House, The Loft and Mosaic Bistro will all go back to full hours and full menus.

In a bid to reinvigorate economic activities in Kunming, over 300 designated streets around town will allow small business vendors to set up stalls (摆摊) on the sidewalk for off book revenue opportunities. Night market scene of yore may once again blossom back. Chengguan (城管) will have a field day overseeing and prohibiting undesignated spots.

More foot traffic in these places may compliment legit businesses nearby where street stalls are placed.
