Outdoor restaurants and pubs reopening on April 12 mean the return of Boxpark to Shoreditch, the world's first pop-up shopping mall when it opened in 2010.
Visitors need to sign the Boxpark “black card” to gain entry and have to wear a face covering—except when sitting for meals or drinks.
More space than before the pandemic is being marked out for al fresco eating and drinking at the old Bishopsgate Goodsyard venue.
Covid hygiene facilities are in place, such as sanitiser dispensers and staff wearing facial coverings. No pre-bookings are being taken, with seating on a “first come, first served” basis.
The venue, which is on Bethnal Green Road, is complying with government regulations such as the rule of six and everyone wearing face coverings except when seated.
