The Cloak and Dagger open pop-up charity shopPosted on: 03 Dec 2020
The popular Cheltenham Road bar is unable to open as normal under Tier 3 restrictions.
The Cloak and Dagger have today (Thursday 3 December) opened a pop-up charity shop inside their ground floor bar space, selling a range of locally-sourced products in support of Bristol-based charity, Treasured 12.
With Bristol currently under Tier 3 coronavirus restrictions, The Cloak and Dagger are facing more uncertainty after a difficult year, having opened just over a year ago.
As well as the items on sale for charity, the bar are inviting local traders to set up as part of the pop-up, with tables available from just £5 per day.
Located a short walk from Stokes Croft, The Cloak and Dagger is certainly one of the most unique venues in central Bristol, home in normal circumstances to everything from live music and magic to creative cocktail menus and a renowned Sunday roast service.
You wouldn't know it from walking by the quirky-looking former tea room, but it's home to two cosy upstairs dining areas, three performance spaces and an outdoor courtyard.
Speaking to 365Bristol last November just after the bar had opened, owner Jenna Graves said The Cloak and Dagger "has the potential to be absolutely anything", and that the team's main goal was to provide a steady platform for the huge number of performers and creative people in Bristol.
Open daily as long as Bristol remains in Tier 3, their new pop-up shop will be stocking a wide range of homeware and Christmas gift ideas, including hand-made wreaths, work from local artists and festive craft bits.
Their chosen charity, Treasured 12, is located just a few doors up on Cheltenham Road, and raises money for a different cause every month.
In December, they'll be fundraising for Legs4Africa, a Bristol-based project dedicated to providing prosthetic legs to amputees across Africa to enable them to live more independently.
Alongside the new project, The Cloak and Dagger are continuing to run their food delivery service during the buildup to Christmas, offering delicious, freshly-prepared and locally-sourced dishes to doorsteps across Bristol.
