Some venues have decided to partially open with a brewery license.
Prohibited from opening until at least July 31st, according to Berlin newspapers, the Brigit & Bier club located in Kreuzberg will serve beers and pizzas on its terrace until 10 at night, while Sisyphos will do the same on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 3 in the afternoon to 10 at night. In both cases, you can listen to music but you can’t dance. The guests must remain at their tables respecting the safety distances and the staff will have to be protected with masks.
Another club that is thinking of doing something similar is the About Blank, located in the Ostkreuz neighborhood, but they have not yet decided to take the plunge. On his part, Tom Szana, manager of Ipse, does not plan to open the terrace because, on one side, he does not want to turn the space into one more terrace, and on the other, he does not want to be responsible for the number of possible infections increasing again. In addition, he has other concerns since the interior area of the premises burned down a couple of weeks ago and will have to be demolished and rebuilt.
For its part, Salon – Zur Wilden Renate has announced that from next May 20th it will open as a “Biergarten” every afternoon until 10 at night. All the rules of distance and hygiene will be followed and they will have a record of all the people who access each day, in case there is any contagion. These records will be deleted one month after the date.
