We’ve all been cooped up in our homes for months, and the Great Receipt Race is a great way to explore the city again while supporting our local small businesses.


Learn about a few businesses that are welcoming customers back through their doors and how they’re keeping you safe while you visit:

The Atomic Lounge

2113 1st Avenue North


From Tuesday through Saturday, The Atomic is offering socially distanced drinking options on 1st Avenue North, complete with expanded patio seating. Plus, you can leave with a t-shirt showing your support for the watering hole.


The Pizitiz Food Hall

1821 2nd Avenue North


Downtown Birmingham’s dining hall is back open for business—but with facemasks and other requirements to keep visitors safe. Enjoy just about any cuisine you can think of and also participate in their Pizitz Punch Card competition for a chance at a prize that’s worth $1,000!

Paramount Birmingham

200 20th Street North


The 20th Street bar is offering limited dining room seating. Walk-up service and patio seating are still available, so pull up a chair, grab a drink and order one of their great burgers!


218 20th Street North


Reservations are now required to enjoy the French restaurant as its dining room has been transformed into a mix of regular and semi-private seating options. Outdoor seating is also available.

The Collins Bar

2125 1st Avenue North


The bar is open inside and has patio seating. They’ll also bring drinks to you and your coworkers for a pandemic-adjusted happy hour! Contact them for more details.

Harvest Market

That’s right, there’s no need to look any further than downtown if you need to make a quick grocery run. Harvest Market has everything you need—including more health-conscious options such as supplements and a hot bar that serves homestyle-cooked lunches.
