Each Wednesday from mid-July through the middle of September, restaurants on West Street will be taking al fresco dining in historic Downtown Annapolis to a new level.

The first block of West Street (from Church Circle to Calvert Street), located in the heart of the Arts District, will be closed to traffic on Wednesday evenings and with cafe tables reminiscent of the open air cafes in France and the piazzas of Rome, Italy and Venice, Italy. 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. 

Dinner Under the Stars

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 through September, Dinner under the stars will take place from 6pm to 10pm on the first block of West Street off Church Circle.
