It is now open for takeaway and outdoor dining


A new cafe and bar at the Belgrade Theatre has finally opened its doors to the public this week.

Named the Belgrade Cafe and Nineteen 58, it is now open for takeaway and outdoor dining from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Customers can get their hands on locally sourced food includes nachos, loaded fries and loaded salad with delicious toppings including guacamole, tomato salsa, salsa verde, coleslaw, sour cream and lots more. A variety of soft and alcoholic drinks are also available.

The Belgrade’s food and drink offer is run in-house. As a registered charity, every penny customers spend with them goes back into supporting their work with and for Coventry’s communities.

Catering manager Joy Clayton said: "We're looking forward to welcoming people into our stunning new space. Not only are we enhancing the theatrical experience of audience members, but we're also able to open independently of the theatre.

"Our footprint has been expanded into previously occupied shops on Corporation Street - so now our space is bigger than ever before. We'll be open seven days a week when Covid restrictions ease on May 17.

"With later opening times on Fridays and Saturdays, keep your eyes peeled for live music events. We can't wait to see faces old and new."

From May 17, customers will be able to see the new cafe and upstairs bar for the first time, as long as government restrictions allow.

The refurbishment of the Belgrade’s café is part of its £5.5 million 2020 Redevelopment Project.

Councillor David Welsh, from Coventry City Council, said: “There has been so much work happening throughout the Covid outbreak to improve facilities at the Belgrade Theatre and I am really pleased that they can now take the first tentative steps by announcing what future productions they will be able to host.

"I want to thank all those involved for the hard work they have put into getting the Belgrade Theatre ready, and I wish the theatre every success.”
