Health And Safety Readiness

The health and safety of the patrons and staff of Chayz Lounge is our highest priority. We have always taken steps to mitigate the spread of germs in our establishment and we’re more vigilant in our efforts in the wake of the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak. We want you to know that we are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy space to enjoy a light meal, cocktails, and the best live jazz performances.


Outlined below are the measures we have taken and continue to take to ensure the well-being of our patrons, staff and our community.

Here's What We're Doing:


  • Closely following the guidance provided by DHEC, the CDC and the World Health Organization, and have educated our staff on the preventative measures provided by these organizations.

  • Continuing to have our venue professionally cleaned on a weekly basis. We are also committed to cleaning the space between shows.

  • Increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing of our kitchen surfaces, bathrooms, tables, chairs, menus, tablets, bar, door knobs and common areas.

  • Implemented a touch-free ordering system until such time we can return to the use of our menus.

  • Ongoing staff training on DHEC’s safe food handling protocols, as well as proper hand washing, health and hygiene standards that exceed DHEC’s requirements.

  • Requiring employees who are sick to stay home.

  • Employees who suspect they have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 are required to immediately report it to management and self-quarantine for a minimum of 14 days.

  • Measuring the employees' temperature and assess symptoms prior to them starting work.

  • Requiring employees to regularly self-monitor, assess any symptoms they may have or as they arise and wearing a mask.

  • Provided disinfectant wipes and spray in the restrooms. We encourage our patrons and staff to use them as needed.

  • Management reserves the right to refuse admission to any person exhibiting signs of a cold or flu-like symptoms.

Here's What We're Encouraging You To Do:

Take care of your health and protect others within our space, and in your daily lives by taking these basic steps:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

  • If using hand sanitizer, be sure to cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

  • If you are sick or even feeling slightly under the weather, stay home. Management reserves the right to refuse admission for any person exhibiting signs of a cold or flu-like symptoms.

  • Maintain at least 3 feet distance between yourself and others. When someone coughs, sneezes, or speaks they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person has the disease.

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. You touch many surfaces and your hands can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, your hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and infect you.

  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Discard the tissue in the trash.

We understand the concerns many have as it relates to the spread of the coronavirus. The most reliable sources of information continue to be the Center for Disease Control’s website, and the World Health Organization’s website.


As always, we appreciate your continued support and the trust you have placed in us. Come experience live jazz in a wonderful ambiance and rest assure that we are taking every precaution to maintain a clean and healthy space.
