Cancel the goodbye drinks, Fika are staying put in Bray

“We can’t quite believe our luck”

The last few months have undoubtedly hit the hospitality industry the hardest, with the range of measures reducing capacity, service capabilities and hitting pockets hard.

The closure of cafes and restaurants seem to be only inevitable given the range of challenges the industry faces.

That’s why when a restaurant like Fika in Bray, announces its closure and then hits back with some good news, it makes it all the sweeter.

Back in August 30, the team announced that the restaurant’s lease was up and that they would be closing within a month.

But with just over a week to go before their scheduled closure on September 30, the team announced that they wouldn’t be going anywhere.

“We can’t quite believe our luck BUT fika is STAYING!!!!,” the team wrote, “we are all having a bit of a pinch me moment but we got the news that we are able to keep Fika alive”.

The team thanked the neighbouring businesses Platform Pizza and Boxburger for their support.

Announcing that they would be closing on September 30 and reopening October 8, in order to get “a little rest and do a few bits to get ready for the winter!”

Beginning as a popup, Fika quickly grew into one of the go-to spots in the seaside town for brunch and cocktail options.

You can find Fika on Bray’s 7 Strand Road, Brennan’s Parade, follow them on Instagram for updates.
