Missing the night life? Good booze, fun music, great company and an all-round exciting ambience? We do too!
Since Covid-19 mid-March, many bars and nightclubs were forced to shut down as a means to curb the spread of the deadly virus. Months went by and with each month that passed, a lil’ part of our souls died with it.  
6 months later and many of these places are still not operating, due to government restrictions. However, we did find a number of bar & grills, that are in fact, still open. Nevertheless, you would have to follow standard operating procedures (SOP), and unfortunately, we doubt there’ll be any dancing.
But aye, beggars mustn’t be choosers, so here they are.
