Restrictions necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19 have seen many of our most-loved local restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs doing it extremely tough. The response to the pandemic has led to stand-downs, staff lay-offs, and left many businesses struggling to stay afloat. 

During this challenging time, and as restrictions remain across most of our day-to-day activities, these venues need our help more than ever. Which is why Taylors Wines has partnered with Support Local in a new initiative called #LocalNightIn which aims to inspire people to dine in and support their much-loved local establishments get back on their feet. 

To celebrate these local venues, join us for the  #LocalNightIn Festival set to take place over the weekend of 29-31 May. The weekend-long event encourages Australians support their favourite local by purchasing a meal, dining in at home or with friends (with respect to social distancing measures) and sharing an image on social media using the #LocalNightIn hashtag to spread the word that Australia’s local restaurants are still open for business.   

We want to inspire everyone across Australia to host their own #LocalNightIn event, show their support for their favourite local and help the industry get back to normal as restrictions are eased across Australia. 

The #LocalNightIn national listing will remain live even after the #LocalNightIn Festival, with the hopes that people will continue to utilise the platform to find and support their favourite local venues.
