Anderson’s COVID -19 Benefit Policy
Anderson requires all guests wear a mask for the duration of the event.  Masks do not need to be worn when sitting for dinner.  We ask guests to social distance when possible and all will be asked to complete a contract tracing form upon arrival.

Please note Revel 32° is not currently accessible to all persons. 
Note from venue - Our beautiful building was built in 1845 and expanded in 1895. We’re working hard to renovate the building and plans include a new elevator that should be completed in the near future so that all people can experience Revel 32°. Please call to discuss options if mobility is an issue.
