Presented by the U.S. Access Board and the ADA National Network
New trends in the design of restaurants and bars pose challenging questions on the best way to achieve access so that they are inclusive of everyone. This session will review requirements in the ADA and ABA Accessibility Standards for restaurants, cafeterias, and bars and address common sources of confusion. Presenters will cover accessible seating at tables, counters, and bars, dispersion, raised and sunken dining areas, mezzanines, food service lines, and other requirements at different types of dining and drinking establishments.
