A new outdoor drinks venue that has been designed to adhere to COVID-19-related social distancing regulations will open in Belfast on July 23.
The 16,000 square foot venue, which is called The Bone Yard, is situated adjacent to Pug Uglys bar on Belfast's Bedford Street, and has been developed by Pug Uglys director Mark Beirne along with Molson Coors and Brew Dog.
The Bone Yard was designed to create a festival feel while strictly adhering to social distancing requirements. It will feature food stalls, a 17 square metre stretch tent, converted shipping containers and outdoor toilets with space to maintain social distancing.

The Belfast Telegraph quotes Beirne as saying, "I've been involved with the Belfast bar trade for 25 years and our sector has been on quite a journey since then.
"It has evolved many times before, and that innovation and creative thinking is being put to the test once again as we seek to build a safe, thriving, fun and atmospheric city centre."
