The City of Beverly Hills continues to receive updates from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH). The City is being proactive and is in regular communication with our local and national partners to coordinate potential response.

 The City of Beverly Hills Filming and Special Events Office will continue reviewing future filming, photography and special event permit applications on a case by case basis.


Open BHWeb

Special Events AND #OPEnBH

 Per Los Angeles County Health Order, gatherings outside the household, and thus special event permits, are not being issued for events until further notice. Outdoor dining, outdoor business operations, and vehicle-based parades are exempted per the order, and allowed to apply for permits.


#OpenBH is the City's process for allowing businesses to temporarily expand their services to adjacent areas such as parking lots and the public right of way (sidewalks) through a Special Event Permit. Businesses that are currently able to use #OpenBH to expand services outside include restaurants, gyms, salons, faith based organizations, and retail shops.  Please see below for all details, and
email cbh-eventpermits@beverlyhills.org or call 310-285-2408 with any questions.

REVIEW OUR LATEST PRESS RELEASE 

 

Will restaurants be able to serve alcohol?

Yes, restaurants with existing alcohol permits will be allowed to serve alcohol in an expanded area by obtaining a temporary expansion permit from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) and compliance with a list of standard conditions from the City's Special Events and Filming Office. 

IS MY BUSINESS ALLOWED TO UTILIZE THE STREET?

Yes, businesses who wish to utilize the street may do so by converting metered parking spaces to dining or similar areas, known as "parklets". Parklets do require additional review by departments, and in many cases a temporary structure permit from Building and Safety, but are a great substitution for an underutilized meter or valet area. Current guidelines, samples and other details are available here.

Can I PLace a Heaters or Tents in my OUtdoor space?

Yes, as we move forward towards cooler weather, OpenBH businesses that would like to add a tent, umbrellas, heaters, or any other temporary equipment, require additional permitting. Should businesses like to plan for a winter-weather change, we’ve linked Winterization Guidelines, a one-sheet with the best way to apply for a tent/heater permit, and look forward to getting a revised application where you’ve checked off tent/canopy and layout from you to the OpenBH permit team.

Filming and Still Photography

We are currently accepting applications for Film and Still Photography Permits for 15 or less people (i.e. essential cast+crew+background) in residential areas, so long as the location serves as a “closed set” (e.g. closed to the general public), all activity is contained on private property (e.g. no filming or photography on or from the sidewalk or other public right-of-way), all production vehicles (including personal cast/crew cars) are parked on private property at location or offsite (i.e. no street parking or use of another property within walking distance), cast/crew are staged either on private property at location or offsite but not within walking distance, all filming/photography activity stays within normal hours (8AM-9PM, Monday-Saturday; 9AM-8PM, Sunday), and prep/strike days are restricted to 8AM-6PM (9AM-6PM on Sunday).

 

For filming and still photography in commercial areas, the City is now accepting applications for large-scale productions (i.e. 15+ cast+crew). Although there is no restriction on cast/crew size, each and every space (e.g. filming locations, staging areas, makeup/wardrobe stations, etc.) must remain a “closed set” (e.g. closed to the general public) at all times while cast or crew members occupy them. Requests for street parking will be considered on a case-by-case basis, bearing in mind that any area where production vehicles are parked must also remain a “closed set” environment.

 

Please note that City Parks and commercial properties situated in transitional zones (i.e. commercial properties that abut residential areas) will be treated as residential areas. Restrictions for residential areas will apply to these properties.
