There are calls for flexibility and potential changes to the indoor hospitality guidelines.
Representatives from the sector will meet with Government officials later regarding the current indoor dining guidelines.
On the discussion table are two main areas of contention: the winding down of restrictions and a return to normal business hours.
It has been just over a week since the return of indoor hospitality, with concerns over some measures.
David Chawke is owner of The Bank on College Green in Dublin. He told Newstalk Breakfast they are trying to be forward-looking.
"They just want to get a bit of clarity, I think, going forward and get the communication going.
"They're not looking for any easing of restrictions right at the moment, I think it's just to try and start the conversation.
"Obviously the new regulations make life more difficult, it's obviously new for everyone in our industry.
"So it is a little bit more difficult, so it's to try and give everyone a bit of a fair deal in it.
"It's more difficult than it was previously, but we're dealing with it - and we're just looking at things going forward.
"We look at the Scottish model, or wherever we follow when we look at what's happening in other parts of Europe."
He says bar counters should be used as part of seating areas.
"I think the bar counter is a huge thing, especially in traditional and rural-type bars - it's a huge part of their business.
"It's where they probably could have 40% of their seating, and it's about much more than a seat: it's where the interaction happens, the communication, especially in places that have less staff.
"At the moment you can't get a seat at a bar counter, so you have to be seated away from the bar."
But he says it's not about mixing with other customers as much as it is about seating.
"It's not the mingling at the counter, that's not what's being proposed from what I'm reading.
"It's more just a seat at a counter, so people can actually get served sitting down at a counter.
"So there still will be service to table or whatever else - but it's more you would walk into a rural pub now and you'd see the whole counter is empty and people are sitting back away from it."
