The 50,000-square-foot venue's NBC Sports Arena has more than 100 TVs, including a 32-foot LED screen, in addition to plenty of outdoor and patio seating. When it reopens later this month, the Arena will have new menu items, along with the expected beer and cocktails.
PBR Philly inside Xfinity Live! also will reopen. The country bar includes a mechanical bull, but it's not clear whether the ride will be up and running this May.
Starting Friday, indoor seating at restaurants in Philadelphia will increase from 25% capacity to 50%. Restaurants that have already met the health department's enhanced ventilation standards will be able to increase from 50% to 75%.
Pennsylvania will remove COVID-19 restrictions on Memorial Day, but Philadelphia has not yet committed to following the state's timeline for easing restrictions.
When it reopens, Xfinity Live! will follow CDC guidelines and COVID safety measures.
