Bars opening in Phase 2

After months of Zoom drinking sessions and reminiscing the days when we could enjoy an evening tipple at a bar, the time has finally arrived. Phase 2 is upon us!

With a low and stable number of community cases over the last few weeks, more Circuit Breaker measures are being lifted and it’s now possible to head out to enjoy a pint or two with up to 5 friends – while practising safe distancing at all times, of course.

Note: This list is not exhaustive and opening hours might vary after Phase 2.

Things to take note of

Before you enjoy a drink this 19th June onwards, here are a couple of things you need to know:

  1. Liquor sales and consumption aren’t allowed past 10.30PM
  2. Up to 5 people can sit at the same table, but you’ll have to be at least 1M apart
  3. Everyone needs to fill up a SafeEntry form upon arrival
  4. Live music or shows are not allowed yet

Bars open in Phase 2 reopening

After hiding out for so long in our homes, it’s only natural for some of us to gravitate to these watering holes to indulge in a little alcohol to celebrate the move into Phase 2.

That being said, do remember to practise safe distancing and follow the safety guidelines at these re-opened bars. For those who’d prefer to play it safe and stay home, don’t miss out on the fun with these cocktail bar deliveries and restaurants with free islandwide delivery.
