DSU to reopen Riverside Bar and Café


Durham Students’ Union has reopened its bar and café this weekend, after it has been closed since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Riverside Bar and café is open from 17:00-22:00 on weekdays and 12:00-22:00 on weekends.

The bar will resume selling drinks and foods. Students can also use the space to play pool and watch televised sporting events.

Tables must be booked via the Students’ Union website. Under current lockdown restrictions, only one household or support bubble of up to six people are allowed at a table.

The reopening coincides with the start of the Premier League. The venue has historically been a popular place for students to watch live broadcasts such as the Six Nations, the Superbowl and the 2019 general election result. 

The Kingsgate Bar and Café will be re-opening on weekdays 09:00-17:00 starting Monday 5thOctober.
