Bitesize: George’s Sweet Arcade


Posted 5 months ago in Food & Drink Features

The decision of the landlord at George’s Street Arcade to waive rent for its traders throughout lockdown was a rare spark of good news on Dublin’s otherwise grim property rental scene.

Owner Gwen Layden said she regarded charging rent for closed units as immoral, fearing it would force businesses to shutter permanently.

As shops and stalls at the Victorian redbrick covered market reopen, we’re looking forward to sampling the wares of newcomer Benedict’s, enjoying cauliflower cheese salad and cinnamon buns at Simon’s Place, and picking up bakes from new Pepper Pot Bakery stall, close by the mothership at Powerscourt Townhouse. It’s set to open this Wednesday.
