Eater Chicago Featured Roll-A-Cover Retractable Roofs in Recent Article, “18 Chicago Bars and Restaurants With All-Season Retractable Roofs”

The article states, “Chicago’s weather isn’t always suitable for al fresco dining and drinking, but Chicagoans are crafty and know that there are ways to escape Mother Nature.” Several of these restaurants have escaped Mother Nature by installing Roll-A-Cover retractable glass roofs, which allow the restaurants to turn their indoor spaces into outdoor spaces. Therefore, they can stay open during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, during the winter months or rainy days, the retractable roofs close and diners can still enjoy an outdoor ambiance. Therefore, restaurants never lose revenue on their outdoor patios due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. The article added, “Retractable roof coverings and sliding walls are now more vital than ever, as local restaurants attempt to balance safety, comfort, and costs during the pandemic.” Below are the Chicago all-season retractable roofs installed by Roll-A-Cover featured in the Eater article.
