You might be able to get your hands on steins and bratwurst sooner than you think...
That's right. Everyone’s favourite Bavarian beer hall, Albert's Schloss, has been hard at work preparing itself for the new post-lockdown world of dining, complete with social distancing markers, one-way systems and a range of other measures.
So what can you expect? Along with perspex screens, waiters in protective visors and sanitising stations, there'll also be a temperature scanner and antibacterial beer tap dispenser as you enter. Inside, both the dining room and bar have been downsized, with a load of tables removed to suit government guidelines. The number of mixologists has been drastically reduced from a whopping pre-lockdown team of 18 at weekends to just a handful.
When it comes to ordering, the nightlife hotspot has devised a number of options to cater for individual preferences. As well as mobile-based approaches, single-use tick menus and delivery points for those of you looking for minimal contact, there are also plastic mask-clad waiters on hand to take your order.
In the meantime, the Peter Street palace is shaking up a host of cocktails and pints for collection, in addition to a mean takeaway roast dinner to tide you over until it opens its doors again.
