Opening

Are all your venues opening?

To ensure the safety of our guests and teams we are taking a phased approach to opening our
venues, this ensures each venue gets enough focus and support from the business so we can
comfortably and confidently welcome you back for the best experience possible.

How long will you venues remain closed?

We are taking a phased approach to opening our venues and will be opening venues in line with
government guidance. Unfortunately this does not enable us to announce set opening dates for all
of our venues just yet, but keep an eye on our COVID-19 page for further updates or sign up via the
bar page to be notified the minute we are opening

Will any venues remain closed permanently?

Some of our venues operate mainly as nightclubs and as current government guidance has not
permitted the opening of such venues we are currently waiting further government guidelines to
guide us on the reopening of these venues.

Will the atmosphere be the same?

We will still be playing some bangin tunes, just at a reduced volume in line with government
guidance. We are unable to bring you live music at this time but will update this policy as soon as
we can in order with the guidance set out but the government.

What time will you be open until?

All of our venues opening times vary by location, please check your local bar website for details.

How will you be assisting the NHS Track and Trace with requests for data of customers and visitors
as per the government guidelines?

We are still awaiting further detail from the government on this; however, we capture customer
information in several ways already and will be putting additional procedures in place to adhere to
any NHS Track and Trace once they are published.

We will remain GDPR compliant at all times, further information on our policy can be found here.
