Spring Festival: when the entire city seems to empty out and shut down. If you’re not tanning on a tropical beach (or at home visiting family), this might come as welcome relief as the city empties out (crowds of people only to be replaced by the deafening noise of firecrackers). Still a lady’s gotta eat, and for a good few days, the options drastically dwindle. We’ve compiled a list of the holiday hours for a number of notable venues around town, though it’s never a bad idea to call ahead so you don’t make a trip in vain.

The official holiday runs from Jan 31-Feb 7. “Closed” means no operating hours for the duration of this break unless otherwise noted.
Should you be the operator of an establishment or know of special holiday schedules, please feel free to add additional venues in the comments section.
