Let’s Go to the Restaurant with the Moving Roof

Rudy’s adds wow-factor and all-weather seating with a Rollamatic over the courtyard


Newport Beach is a competitive market for casual restaurants. The owner of Rudy’s wanted to add a memorable, customer-pleasing topper to the existing courtyard.


Rudy’s retractable roof is not only well recognized, it increases seating capacity in all kinds of weather. The roof can be easily adjusted to filter the sun, slow the wind, or block the rainfall. The courtyard is more than just useable now, it holds the most desired seats in the house. A Rollamatic helped make Rudy’s a landmark.
