Lincoln Strait and Narrow bar to reopen next week

Popular bar returns after four months

By Local Democracy Reporter

The Strait and Narrow reopens in Lincoln next week, and it is launching an innovative way of social distance communication.

The Strait and Narrow will open at 4pm on Monday, August 17 after over four months away.

The bar stayed closed throughout lockdown and beyond, even when pubs were given the go-ahead to reopen on July 4.

The Strait and Narrow did deliver beer and cocktails to customers during lockdown, but will now return to the bar with social distancing measures in place.

The most intriguing idea is something called the Strait Exchange, which allows people to communicate without leaving their table.

Each table has a phone line that can be dialled to contact other tables, meaning if you spot someone from another table that you want to talk to, you can call them over the phone.

As well as this, the first 50 people who buy a drink will be given a free Buffalo Trace Old Fashioned Cocktail.

There is also a thank you to the NHS with the reopening, as the first 50 people to present an NHS ID will be given a free cocktail.

Capacity has been reduced from 250 to 60 or 70 depending on seating arrangements.

There will also be a one way system around the venue and sanitising stations scattered around.
