They might not be open but Papi's at Thirroul is still providing entertainment every Friday night.
Since the lockdown started co-owner Barry Pearson said the burger joint had been selling tickets at $5 a pop and streaming a local musician's live show every Friday at 6pm.
The idea came about after they sat down with local bookers Holy Pavlova and brainstormed a way to help the music industry.

"At the moment we're getting about 20 screens of people watching," Pearson said.
"For us that's covering the cost of the musician and then some. It's quite pleasing for us to be able to do that and we're getting a lot of good feedback in the music community."
The performance is interactive, with a live chat part of the 90-minute show.
There is also a chance for the performer to earn some extra cash via the 'Tip the artist' option on the Papi's website.
"That's probably not as successful as we'd like," Pearson said.
"They're making about 100 bucks which is good for the artist, but we actually want them to make more. We actually want them to be pulling as many tips as they can. If we get 100 screens watching and everyone gives a dollar, that's an extra $100 for the artist."
This Friday's performance is from Marley Fox, from band The Midnight Tides, who has played at Papi's before.
Pearson said they tended to stick with the regulars for the online sessions.
"We normally like to try people who are looking for a gig, we like to given them a go," he said.
"But with this one we wanted to go with tried and tested musicians because people are paying for it at the end of the day."
