Covid-19 update 29th January 2021
Eagle and Eagle50 are not alone in struggling hard to survive this on-going pandemic - but like many we are determined to ride it out - however long that might be. We, like the Golden Cross, Main Stage, Mary’s and Pulse can’t wait to see things back to normal - whenever that might be.
In the meantime, we all have rent to pay, insurance and many other costs and overheads to meet even though our doors are shut and have been off and on, mainly closed, for almost a year.
The whole world has changed as a result of covid but there is light at the end of the tunnel - one that is getting brighter every day.
However until the day comes, and it will, when we can go out safely, meet friends safely and mix in bars, clubs etc then we have to just sit tight knowing that day is getting ever closer.
The night time economy is important to any city, just as much as shops, offices etc are to the day time economy.
Our venues by and large form an important part of the night time economy - which must be protected at all costs.
YOU CAN HELP WITH THIS....
A newly-formed cross party nationwide group for the Night Time Economy has launched an inquiry into the devastating impact of Covid-19
This group has an opportunity through a survey to present evidence to parliamentarians in support of the Night Time Economy.
Please try and fill it in - It takes just a few mins of your time and will make a huge difference for the future of late night bars and clubs.

Covid-19 update 22nd December 2020
Tier 4 restrictions Wales
Although gyms, swimming pools etc have been allowed to open prior to the latest lockdown - sadly this has not covered jacuzzis, steam rooms, saunas etc - where by the very nature of the business customers come into close contact with one another.
Safety of customers is top priority to Eagle50, as it is to our staff.
We still cannot operate such facilities and at the same time maintain and guarantee social distancing of 2m is observed by everyone throughout their visit and throughout the building.
Sadly, until advised differently, Eagle50 will have to remain closed
We know there are malicious rumours to the contrary, we have not closed down permenantly, its wishful thinking on the part of some, we will be back the moment it’s safe to do so.
Stick with us. Stay safe, here is to a vaccinated new year!
Covid-19 update 1st July 2020
As of July 1 we still have no idea when Eagle50 will be given the thumbs up to open.
Gyms, spas, fitness centres, swimming pools etc (the category Eagle50 falls into) seem to be quite a way down Welsh Government’s list of priorities - but at the same time everyone understands the reasoning why such steps are taken - it is for the safety and protection of all of us.
We regularly get texts and emails asking when we are opening - the simple answer to all is we will as soon as we possibly can.
We cannot predict when this might be, or whether it will be soon or whether it might take longer.
Both Eagle Bar and Eagle50 look forward to the day when both businesses re-open once again - hopefully in the not too distant future.
Until then, stay safe - every day that passes is a day closer to both businesses re-opening.
