Starting Wednesday July 13th restaurants on West Street, under the back drop of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church,will be taking Al fresco dining to a new level in historic Downtown Annapolis. They will be closing the first block of West Street on Wednesday evenings and filling it with cafe tables reminiscent of the open open air cafes in Paris and the piazzas of Rome and Venice. Live music will softly fill the air, and special art exhibits will appear. As the sun sets, an overhead light canopy will fill the air with soft light adding to the ambience.
It’s a night of relaxation, dining and fine wines. It’s a place for families and friends to come together, and for romantic evenings under the stars. For 12 Wednesday evenings from July 13th through September 21st, dinner under the stars will take place from 6pm to 10pm on the first block of West Street off Church Circle.These evenings are sure to become a new Annapolis tradition where the city can come together and enjoy the culinary arts. As outdoor space is limited, reservations are recommended to secure your place.
