San Francisco to provide $2.5M in relief for shuttered nightlife venues

As San Francisco's indoor bars and nightclubs remain closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor London Breed on Monday announced the city will provide $2.5 million for the city's entertainment and nightlife industry.

The funds will be used to waive business and license registration
fees and taxes for some 300 nightlife businesses, as recommended by the city's Economic Recovery Task Force.

"We need to do more to support those businesses that contribute to San Francisco's unique and vibrant culture, which is a cornerstone for our economic recovery as a city," Breed said in a statement.

"As we recover and keep up our progress on reopening, we want to make sure these businesses are still around to bring music, performances and excitement, as well as provide jobs for so many.

"Entertainment and nightlife are such an important part of why
people live and visit our city, and we hope these additional fee waivers reduce some of the financial stress they're experiencing," she said.
