As lockdown measures are being relaxed, Brotherhood bar celebrates 4 July and Leeds United’s mission to return to the premier league.
The bar’s usual brand of sporting entertainment is being treated to a new look in order to provide additional safety measures, its re-opening coinciding with the date of Leeds v Blackburn match.
Some things haven’t changed: such as a fine selection of beers,inspired cocktail creations, premium liquor and of course Prosecco packages.
Above and beyond
The safety of customers and of the in-house team is a priority, with a range of measures that go above and beyond government guidelines. The bar will be covered by plastic screening and hand sanitiser units will be available at the door and at various locations around the premises.
Tables will have handy QR codes, allowing guests to scan the code on their phone to instantly bring up the menus, and ordering and payment will be by smartphone. Food and drinks will be delivered to tables, not collected. Table bookings will be made online.
The Brotherhood team who deliver drinks and collect glasses will wear full PPE, as will the bar and kitchen team. Staff will be prompted by 20-minute timers so that they are reminded to sanitise all front of house areas, and signs will ask guests to keep their social distance. The premises will have been deep cleaned and all staff re-trained in line with COVID-19 advice.
Electric sporting atmosphere
Decor has been freshened up, confetti cannons added and a soundtrack and lighting to help to maintain that electric sporting vibe, no doubt a happy welcome back for Brotherhood’s regular customers.
Drinks packages include cases of Peroni, Heineken, Corona and bottled spirits ranging from Grey Goose to Jack Daniels and Bombay Sapphire. Guests can also order drinks on an ad-hoc basis from their table, where an impressive hand-picked selection of the finest whiskies, rums, gins, tequilas and more will be available.
Burgers, sharing platters and nibbles will keep appetites sated. The menu may be small but it is mouth-watering and well curated.
In common with so many businesses, Brotherhood has adapted to the constraints brought about by COVID-19, having begun post-lockdown by providing a delivery service. Now, the bar is obviously determined to do everything necessary to reassure and welcome customers to a safe environment where they can once again relax and enjoy the company of friends.
Brotherhood Director Seema Dhiman had this to say ahead of the relaunch:
‘’With football season back on track and the people of Leeds raring to get back out into the city, we couldn’t be any more excited to bring Brotherhood back to its best. We’re really proud of the additional safety measures we’ve put in place to protect our customers and employees, whilst also maintaining the fun and lively atmosphere we’ve become famous for.
Our QR codes system makes ordering food and drink safe, simple and convenient. The team can’t wait to get back out there and help the people of Yorkshire cheer Leeds United on as they take on Blackburn. We predict it’s going to be quite a memorable weekend that will be fondly remembered by the people of Leeds.’’
