City Winery is hitting pause on its reopening “in light of current challenging conditions and in the interest of public safety.”

The Ponce City Market location of the music venue/winery/restaurant opened its patio for takeout food last month and planned to restart concerts by the end of July.

A statement from City Winery CEO and founder Michael Dorf said the “length of the temporary closure is unclear at this time, but we are optimistic it will only last a short while.” No specific reason was provided for the closure.

Locations in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Boston are also enduring temporary closures.

Patrons can support City Winery by making a donation to their Employee Relief Fund, ordering wine for home delivery, becoming a member of the wine club or “attending” an upcoming CWTV livestream show.

Billy Strings is presenting a streamed show from Nashville at 7:30 p.m. July 22-23. Tickets are $9.99.

In recent weeks, the Atlanta location has announced rescheduled dates for shows from artists including Lisa Fischer (from July 25 to March 12), Freewill + Jor’dan Armstrong (from July 29 to March 24), Shaun Cassidy (from Sept. 13 to May 16) and Alejandro Escovdeo (from Sept. 20 to May 23).
