Local favorites like The Library Bar and Grill will be the place where everyone knows your name.

"It’s been wonderful to see faces that I haven’t seen in a year, we had a line last night that went down halfway down the block it was awesome," said Justin downing, The Library Bar & Grill manager.

Effex nightclub’s staff have been busy over the last few days as people line up waiting to return to the dance floor.

"It’s been crazy, fun but crazy we’ve all been obviously coming out of a really tough year and there’s a bunch of emotions that come with all of this, we’re stressed we’re tired we’re anxious but I think coming here the excitement of it all is kind of worthwhile," said Jameson Marquez, Effex general manager.
