While sister restaurant Ceviche thankfully lives on, lovers of Peruvian cuisine will be saddened to learn that Shoreditch’s Andina has closed its doors for good. Andina cited difficulties with its landlords over rent in an announcement on Instagram but also said it was working on finding a new space to carry on the concept. With Ceviche in Old Street shut, you’ll have to head to Ceviche Soho for your Pisco Sour fix.
Back in March 2020, all of London’s bars, restaurants and hospitality venues were ordered to close to the public because under the first lockdown. Some were able to bounce back in summer 2020, only to have to go back into hibernation in the winter as the city locked down again. Some didn’t reopen at all.
The struggle is far from over for London’s restaurants and bars. Their staff are still at risk, and some customers remain cautious about returning to indoor drinking and dining. There’s also a massive shortage of hospitality staff, partly due to Brexit. Sadly, this means there have been further casualties.
Here we bid farewell to the London restaurants and bars that have confirmed they won’t be reopening. So long, and thanks for all the drinks, dishes and great times.
