Sum Yi Tai—which houses 3 concepts over 3 storeys in a conservation shophouse—is another Covid-19 casualty.
Sum Yi Tai was a popular hangout spot in the CBD which offered dim sum lunch and tapas-style dishes in a crimson-lit gangland bar. It has shut down its establishment at 25 Boon Tat Street because of the high rental in the CBD.
2020 has been a bad year for everyone, period.
Most industries in Singapore have been badly hit by the pandemic, which has left many of us scrambling to save our sinking boats. The F&B sector especially has suffered and things got worse when the Circuit Breaker was put in place, restricting people from dining out and patronising these establishments.
Aside from COVID-19, many of these F&B ventures have also decided to close for other reasons such as the end of their lease. Whatever the case, we are sad to see these places go and we hope that better opportunities will come their way soon.
With that, here is a list of F&B outlets in Singapore that have closed their doors in 2020.
In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many establishments in the Food & Beverage industry have sadly been very hard hit. With recent measures being put in place by the government, a number of restaurants, bars and cafes across Singapore have been forced to close their shutters or move to takeaway and delivery options just so that we can try to flatten the curve of COVID-19 infections.
We have here a list of places that have temporarily closed their doors during this period and will not be having delivery or takeaway options. We sincerely hope that the situation gets better soon so these businesses can start their engines again to make back whatever losses they may incur right now.
May we all stay safe during this exhausting period!
