Bar Opus Serves Up Sun Protection

Staff working at Birmingham’s sunniest afternoon terrace  at Bar Opus have been lending out an array of colourful sunglasses, hats and sunscreen to customers enjoying their new outside space.

With temperatures soaring to an expected 28 degrees in the UK’s second city this week, the bar and restaurant based at One Snow Hill, have been taking measures to help drinkers enjoy the sunshine safely on the sun-trap terrace.

Irene Allan, director at Opus, said:

We are pretty sure this is one of the sunniest spots to enjoy a cool drink or refreshing cocktail in Birmingham, but this week we noticed many people had forgotten their sunglasses and hats, along with their sunscreen. We wanted to make sure everyone could enjoy the rays with their friends safely. So we now have a selection of them all for our customers to borrow when they come to the bar and make the most of this glorious weather while it lasts.
We’re pretty sure that there will be a fair amount of larking about, that’s what happens when you give props to people in a bar, but if that results in people taking some proper sun protection, then our little sunshine project has done its job.”
