Since April 10th the unique Irish bar has been closed just like many other restaurants around the world due to COVID-19. Many restaurants have been forced to shut down forever, but this Irish bar is confident that they will re-open and survive the COVID-19 shutdown. Nepal is going to start issuing hiking permits in September and travel is allowed in August. When the bar does reopen, according to owner Dawa Sherpa, things will be a bit easier thanks to a new road. Where things were very hard to transport up and down the mountain this new road will allow accessibility.
