The end of Coronavirus is on the horizon, and we’re striving toward a world with carefree events that can take place inside with maximum capacity. However, we aren’t quite there yet. All different types of events are starting to take place again, but you may be asking yourself how to properly throw an event during this unprecedented time.

Fortunately, rooftops in New York City are aplenty. Rooftops are an ideal location for a 2021 event, not only for the views, but for the endless fresh air. Here are some tips on how to throw an unforgettable rooftop event in 2021.

Ensure Socially Distant Entertainment

It’s a good idea to have assigned seats and tables where your guests can sit, relax, and maintain adequate distance from too many other attendees. You’ll want to hire a DJ, musician, comedian or other type live performer to keep everyone entertained on stage. You could also opt to have a rooftop movie night, playing old favorites on a projector, or even a craft night, where guests can drink wine and paint. Whatever method of entertainment you choose, the number one priority should be creating a fun, yet safe environment.

Limit Your Guest List

Limiting your guest list helps guarantee your guests will feel safe at your event. It depends on the size of the rooftop as well as the relationship (or lack thereof) of the attendees. As we all know by now, a good rule is to abide by the recommended distance of six feet. You do not want 50 people crowded at the bar, all bumping into each other. This may have been acceptable in 2019, but people right now need personal space more than ever.

Provide Wait Staff

A great way to ensure guests are not overly crowded is to provide staff to wait on your tables. Almost all events should offer drinks, if not food as well. If guests are at designated tables, wait staff can bring them whatever they order, as opposed to having a buffet or open bar, which may not be considered as sanitary.
