Manchester Restaurant Offers To Host Pop-Up Bar Takeovers To Help Those Forced To Close Again

Many establishments have been hit by the new Tier 3 restrictions.

Providing an incredibly kind ‘olive branch’ for the bars and pubs who have been impacted by the government’s new Tier 3 restrictions, which were announced for Greater Manchester just last night, Manc-fave Italian restaurant Don Giovanni has announced that they will be offering local bars the chance to take over their bar, with their classic Italian menu accompanying as the “substantial food offering” that is required to operate under the new rules.

Speaking of the new, ever-generous idea, a spokesperson for Don Giovanni said: “Hospitality is getting hit hard, now more than ever we need to be doing what we can to help prop each other up,

“We would like to offer some support to bartending brothers and sisters who are looking at being forced to close from Friday.

“It could be us next. We need to stick together.”

Announcing the news just today, the restaurant is looking to open up its huge bar space for neighbouring businesses in the city, which would see Manchester bars and venues bringing their own drinks menus to Don Giovanni’s, while the restaurant will serve up their menu of Italian classics for guests to enjoy. To offer is also open to local breweries, who have been significantly impacted this year as a result of all hospitality businesses being shut for many months earlier in the year.

The spokesperson added: “We’ve always been keen on working more with local breweries, and now more than ever is the time to support those close to home,

“Manchester is a city that pulls together in tough times – this isn’t any different. Collaboration is definitely the way forward.”
