Accessible Dining Surfaces and Bars

Thursday, June 1, 2017

The ADA and ABA Accessibility Standards apply to a wide range of spaces in the public and private sectors and specify which elements and spaces must be accessible. This session will review how to apply these criteria to dining surfaces and bars and provide guidance on some common errors in design. A representative from the Restaurant Association will provide an overview of the most common restaurant design issues, including product selection, installation details, furniture placement and best practice design tips.
