The #AldgateEats launch went down with a bang! Thank you for everyone who joined us for the launch of this amazing initiative and a big thank you to Satyrio Restaurant for hosting us in their beautiful Secret Garden!
The Aldgate Eats initiative is aimed at supporting local hospitality businesses, as well as encouraging networking and forming connections within the community by bringing everyone together.
At each event, Aldgate Eats will try a new venue from the vast and varied hospitality offerings in the area. The scheme was developed by Merchant Land, in collaboration with the Aldgate Connect BID team.
Zoe Barwick, BID Manager said: “It’s essentially a platform for locally-minded people to come together and talk about the neighbourhood, their plans and hopes for the future of the area. These types of things have been much missed and it’s a great opportunity to support our hospitality sector and encourage people to start spending again. We can’t wait.”
Katherine McCollough, Merchant Land said: “We’re really keen for other businesses to take part and sponsor this initiative and it’ll be nice to remind people how nice we’ve got it here in Aldgate. We might be landowners but it’s not just a property networking thing. It’s about getting people from all sectors to come together and create useful connections and share their experiences of the pandemic and hopes post-COVID. We’re hoping to make it a relaxed event with good food to build a community post-pandemic.”
