Ahead of its full reopening on 17 May, York Theatre Royal are opening their new outdoor pop-up bar.
Cupid’s Bar will open on the York Theatre Royal patio on Thursday (15 April) for five weeks.
The bar will run from midday to 9.30pm every Thursday to Sunday. It will provide an outdoor space in the heart of the city for friends, family, residents and visitors alike to socialise safely.
Working with regional suppliers, Cupid’s Bar will offer a range of drink options including draught beer from Black Sheep Brewery and York Gin.
York Theatre Royal’s Chief Executive, Tom Bird, said: “We’re thrilled to be opening Cupid’s Bar on our patio.
“It’s the perfect space to enjoy the picturesque delights of the city with family and friends. And we’re delighted that we can work some of York’s best independent businesses and suppliers so our customers can enjoy a range of great drinks.”
Live performances at York Theatre Royal are set to restart on 17 May with ‘The Love Season’, a programme of shows that celebrates human connection.
The initiative to open an outdoor space for the community reflects the upcoming reopening, and is a chance to make those important connections with our loved ones safely.
Cupid’s Bar will be socially distanced, with table service and card payments only. Tables will be available on a first come, first served basis.
