SCHENECTADY – The popular Wolff’s Biergarten is set to reopen all four of its upstate locations, including the one in Schenectady, after a month-long closure due to concerns about keeping staff and customers safe from COVID-19.
Wolff’s announced Monday that the locations in Albany, Schenectady, Troy and Syracuse will open back up at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
“In response to continued encouraging COVID numbers throughout New York State, and after 4 weeks of pausing our bar/restaurants, Wolff’s Biergarten Albany, Schenectady, Troy & Syracuse will be reopening our big garage doors to you on Tuesday August 4 at 2 pm,” owner Matt Baumgartner wrote in a letter posted to the Wolff’s Facebook page.
The letter also emphasized that state regulations will be strictly enforced, including patrons must wear a mask when on their feet, even on patios and inside; patrons consuming alcohol must be seated and eating at all times; and Wolff’s will implement a “Please Wait To Be Seated” rule at entry to further help socially distance guests.
Wolff’s announced its initial voluntary closure July 4 as Baumgartner wrote he felt closing was best for everyone and that they would reopen when they felt they could do so safely “and in the true spirit of Wolff’s Biergarten.”
