Coronavirus Update 17/03/20

Dear Customers,

in light of the current situation with the Coronavirus crisis, and following UK Government recommendations, we have decided to cancel all Music & Tapas events until further notice. All customers will be refunded in full. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Meanwhile, for the moment Cafe Barcelona will be open as usual until we receive further instructions from the Government.

As things stand, as a small business we feel totally let down by the Government current plan of action. This only adds up to our staff and our own uncertainty and anxiety about what the future holds. We request to the UK Government to ASAP lay out a clear plan of tax relief, freezing commercial and private rent, utility bills, and any other financial mechanism that gives everyone the support and peace of mind that we so much need for the coming weeks.

Seeing the decisions taken so far by Boris Johnson Government (leaving us to our own devices) we can only wait and see. We believe it’s a time to stand together to overcome this difficult time for everyone, and let’s not forget the sacrifices and efforts that so many times we have been requested to undergo in recent years.

Keep safe

Cafe Barcelona
