The Royal Court Theatre is opening a brand new pop-up bar and café in the middle of Sloane Square from midday tomorrow.
Throughout the summer, coffees, cakes and snacks will be available including the Royal Court’s classic sausage roll as well as many vegan choices. In the evenings wine, craft beers and cocktails from the new drinks menu will also be on offer.
Tables will have their own hand sanetisers and will be socially distanced. There will be a mobile ordering app and contactless payment on food and drink delivery as well as Wi-Fi and charging points.
The temporary pop-up venue will be run by the Royal Court’s friendly theatre bar team and all profits will support the Royal Court Theatre. It will be open Tuesday-Sunday 12pm-8pm, and will close at 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays during the summer. Find out more details on the Royal Court’s website.
Robert Smael, Catering & Operations Manager at Royal Court Theatre says;
“I’m very excited to take this first step to re-opening and look forward to welcoming visitors again. We’ve worked with Cadogan and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea to create an appealing and safe offer for both locals and our Royal Court audiences.
“I can’t wait to be joined by our Bar team members, the first staff to join on-site since we closed on the 16th of March. The majority of our Bar team also work in the creative industry and they’ve been hit very hard by the shutdown, it will be a joy to work together in our new pop-up bar.”
Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director at Royal Court Theatre adds;
“We are delighted that we have this opportunity to start working again and that our brilliant bar team are leading the way. Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard and so fast to make this happen.”
