“It’s been such a tough few months for everyone in the sector, and we’ve had such support from our team and customers. We hope the launch demonstrates that there is a quiet confidence among operators, as well as a public demand to get the restaurant industry back up on its feet and open again. ”

Vertigo Media City will see soft green, grey and natural wood furnishings, encouraging customers to relax and socialise in style. All social distancing measures will be adhered to, with cashless and contactless service.
