Places Open For Dine-In Or Takeout in Memphis on New Year’s Day 2021

Places Open For Dine-In Or Takeout in Memphis on New Year’s Day 2021

We are almost to 2021. Here’s a running list of places open on New Year’s Day, which I'll continue to update.

Shelby Co. Health Dept.'s Directive 16 limits in-person dining rooms to 25 percent capacity and is in affect Dec. 26 - Jan. 22. Read the directive here. Please follow all health policies and wear a mask!

Everything on this list is subject to last-minute and frequent changes. Call ahead or make backup plans. Any establishment may decide to close or go to takeout-only at the last minute; that’s outside of the control of I Love Memphis. This guide will not be updated between December 23 through the 27th due to the holidays.

I am happy to make additions to the list; no one is left off on purpose.
