And that, as they say, is a wrap…
Our doors are now closed until Thursday 27th January 2022 to recover…
But wow… what a 2021 that was…
After an incredibly tough start to the year we were finally able to open our doors post Lockdown Part III on 15th April to serve you all in our fabulous “Après” outside seating area on embankment. We opened inside again on 20th May & then hosted Dartmouth’s Unofficial Pride in June, and we were finalists in the Muddy Stilettos Awards in the “Best Bar Devon” Category and shortlisted to the last Five!
We launched our #ThursdayNightLive series of live events in July opening with James Harris Sax Beatbelt, followed by the fabulous Joanna Cooke & then the outstanding Derek Nash & the Martin Dale Quartet. In August we were thrilled to be a part of the The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta with our pop up in Coronation Park.
And it didn’t stop there. In the autumn we returned with more Thursday Night Live Events including a Gin Masterclass with Plymouth Gin, a Comedy Night with hilarious acts Wilton Milton, Suzy Bennett & Demitris Deech and more amazing live music including Sarah Yeo Annika Skoogh Music, DJ Jason Vegas Butler & The Drat Pack.
Our Sunday Funday Happy Hour proved exceptionally popular, & in December we hosted Christmas Parties galore, with the icing on the cake, our Party to end all Parties, our All That Glitters on NYE. What a night!
We can’t wait to welcome you all back again on THURSDAY 27th JANUARY… & we’ll be announcing more Thursday Night Live Events soon too… so watch this space!
Thank you to you all for your ongoing support of our special little bar in the heart of Dartmouth.
See you soon.

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
