Covid-19: Bars in England Full reopening announced
From next week, bars in England will celebrate the end of social distancing and legal restrictions the British government announced Monday.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid announced the flexibilization in bars in England of restrictions imposed by the covid-19 crisis. Bars, pubs and nightclubs will be able to operate as normal from July 19.
For the UK hospitality body, it is a “huge relief” for the industry, as the hospitality sector will be able to reopen in full more than a year after the start of the pandemic.
Kate Nicholls, CEO of UK Hospitality, said: “A week from now, for the first time in 16 months (hospitality premises) will be able to move towards profitability, which is vital for the future of a sector beset by covid-related debts.
“To reach profitability as soon as possible, it is vital that businesses are able to reach their own solutions, to suit their settings, satisfy their risk assessments and optimize implementation costs while ensuring safety.
“The voluntary nature of the government guidance should ensure that this is achievable.”
To access bars, pubs and clubs, the government is not mandatorily asking for Pass covid-19. However, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the government is urging nightclubs and high-capacity venues to adopt the “passport.”
“As a matter of social responsibility, we urge nightclubs and other high-capacity venues to use the NHS Covid Pass, which demonstrates proof of vaccination, a recent negative test or natural immunity, as a means of entry,” Johnson said.
Bars in England to enjoy the reopening
Here’s a selection of bars in England to enjoy the reopening, whether you’re looking for wine bars, beer gardens, pubs, or restaurants.

According to locals, it is the place in the area with the most outdoor space. At The Duke they can host up to 100 people outside, and you can reserve tables for up to six people. In addition, they offer the possibility of ordering your drinks from an app. And for tasting, you can pair your drinks with jerk style chicken, Caribbean cuisine served with rice and peas, coleslaw, jerk sauce and pineapple jam and Scotch bonnet.
The Gaucho restaurant on Charlotte Street renewed its vision with a responsible look. After the renovation, it opened on December 9th. Perfect for tasting meats. But cocktails thanks to its two cocktail bars, very elegant with a great selection of Argentinean wines.

The restaurant and bar, located in an 18th century church, combine architectural grandeur with geometric games inspired by the Hong Kong tea rooms of the 1960s.

The Wine Parlour, Brixton | @thewineparlour
If you’re looking to sip delicious wine glasses, The Wine Parlour has a great selection of wines that you can pair with delicious cheese and charcuterie.
