Token announce their reopening date ahead of indoor dining announcement

The resumption of indoor dining and drinking is expected to take place on July 26, but as yet there has been no official Government announcement

Token has announced its reopening date, ahead of the official government indoor dining announcement. A final decision on the date of reopening indoor dining and drinking across Ireland is expected to be taken by Cabinet on Wednesday, July 21.

Despite this uncertainty and lack of guidance from the government several businesses have announced indoor events and a resumption to services.

Following his meeting with Dr Tony Holohan and NPHET, Taoiseach Micheal Martin is expected to meet with Government party leaders on Wednesday.

July 26 has been mooted as a possible date for reopening by Leo Varadkar, but the Tánaiste outlined a series of issues that need to be resolved before that date.

Speaking to reporters in Cork on Saturday, Martin said, “we’re going to give this very serious consideration. We’ll be considering these issues again on Wednesday, in the sense of formally deciding on issues.

Fáilte Ireland and hospitality stakeholders are still finalising the guidelines for the reopening of bars and restaurants.

Taking to Instagram, the Smithfield-based restaurant-come-arcade Token announced: “we will reopen Friday, July 30th”.

“It’s strange… Have we been through this before? Possibly several times?” they added.

Writing that they can’t wait to welcome customers back they added, that they would be operating with socially distanced tables and games, at limited capacity, mask-wearing, as “the safety of our staff and you is more important than anything”.

On June 29th Token released a statement about their continued closure in the wake of the indoor hospitality date being pushed back, writing “To say we are extremely upset is a complete understatement. We’re at the point now where we’re furious and our spirit is nearly completely broken.”
