Just like other small businesses (and individuals!), we are currently being bodied by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the recent government announcements.
We are a small independent bar and our immediate future is looking really uncertain right now. Up until the past week we were gearing up for future events, exhibitions, food menu revamps, DJ bookings, party shenanigans and more. We've been around the block (well, situated on the Edge....Street) for 15 years now and this, as with many of our peers, is our toughest challenge yet.
Now, realistically we are looking at potentially shutting up shop for what could be three months, this is heartbreaking and something that we could not have prepared for. We have worked hard over the past few days to brainstorm ideas about how we might still serve our community going forward - with everything changing on a day-to-day basis, that is getting increasingly difficult. Our bar and kitchen staff have been working on the frontline, trying to make the best of the current situation. We could really do with your help - in our likely absence as a functioning bar IRL - if you can spare it, to help support our staff during this down time.
If you have visited Common, been served by our amazing staff, enjoyed our burger / brunch-forward offering, or attended one of our events and you would like to be able to do so again in the future - we would love some community support in return for COMMON BAR TABS.
You'll get the amount back that you pledge in the shape of bar credit that can be redeemed whenever you choose. Plus if you can manage it, the £50 and £100 rewards have bolt-on spicy extras.
