Important information for all of our fabulous customers
We know that people are very excited about the lifting of most restrictions on Monday 19th July 2021 in England, but with ever increasing Covid rates, particularly here in the South West, the safety of our team, their families and our customers needs to be our number one priority.
Therefore, with that in mind, we have decided to remain operating with our current covid rules & regulations in place. i.e. Table Service only and limiting the number of customers inside the venue. The only difference will be that we will leave it to your own discretion as to whether you wear a mask on entry, and when moving around the venue.
We understand everyone is keen to have life to return to "normal" but we feel it is right to err on the side of caution at this time and ensure that your 1620 experience is as safe as possible.
We will continue to monitor the Covid situation and keep you updated as to when we may relax rules here further.
Thank you, as ever, for understanding, and for your continued support in these ever challenging times.
Kate, Rich, Tom and all the Bar 1620 Dartmouth Team
Wow wow wow - we’re thrilled to announce that we have made it to the FINAL of The Muddy Awards 2021! Now in their eighth year, the Muddies are the most coveted #inlovewithlocal awards for indie businesses across the UK.
Bar 1620 was due to open its doors in March 2020... but then COVID HIT!
All the hard work, all of our plans put on hold. We were devastated.
We finally opened on the 4th July 2020 and what a year we have had since we launched! Thousands and thousands of cocktails made, pints poured & bottles of fizz popped for so many of our amazing customers.
So much fun has been had, both inside and outside of our fabulous little bar!
It has to be said though that after a year of multiple lockdowns and hardships we are SO. OVER. COVID, and so learning that we are down to the FINAL FIVE in the BEST BAR DEVON category of the Muddy Awards 2021 is just incredible with over 500,000 people nominating their favourite local indies across 25 counties, we feel SO HONOURED.
BUT now we need YOUR help to win. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE vote for us by clicking the link HERE. After all the hard work, all the highs and the lows since we opened Bar 1620 Dartmouth it would mean the world to us.
Thanks so much!
Kate, Rich, Tom and all of the Bar 1620 Team!
Every year, during the month of June, the LGBTQ+ community celebrates in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held during this special month as a way of recognising the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969. Pride Month is so important because it marks the start of huge change within the LGBTQ+ community, as well as the wider societal implications. Although attitudes and injustice still remain, we have come a long way since the riots of 1969 and by continuing in this long standing tradition we continue to raise awareness, improve the attitudes of society and encourage inclusiveness.
We are excited to be hosting Dartmouth’s Unofficial Pride on Thursday 24th June, at Bar 1620 Dartmouth from 7pm.
Bar 1620 is very LGBTQ+ friendly and we were thrilled to be asked to host this event that we hope will begin to bring the local community closer together.
We look forward to this first gathering and hope to see as many of you there as possible!
Stay Safe & Happy Pride!

Let's be honest, Aperol Spritzes are ALWAYS a good idea but especially when Aperol will be picking up the bar tab!
Life, like a Spritz, is best served shared.
Which is why @aperolspritzuk picking up the tab for up to 100,000 Aperol Spritz to celebrate the joy of reconnection, as bars and restaurants are open once again across the UK. All you need to do is simply share a pair of Aperol Spritz with a friend or loved one at Bar 1620 Dartmouth from now until Sunday 29th August 2021, and one of them is on Aperol. Easy peasy.
You can also choose to support hospitality venues in another way, by donating the equivalent of your Aperol Spritz to @camparigroupuk‘s hospitality industry relief fund Shaken Not Broken – which supports current and former bar workers affected by lockdown.
To register, for more information and for all T&C's please visit www.aperolspritz.co.uk/together-again
