APT Social Distancing Dining

The hospitality industry is working hard at finding new ways of getting people together while sticking to social-distancing. One idea we love is APT.

Devised by brand consultant Richard Lee Massey, the concept allows people to hire an apartment at Town Hall Hotel with a leading chef of your choice, who will create a menu for you and up to 10 guests. The concept allows guests to have dates, celebratory dinners, engagement parties or even business lunches while obeying social-distancing. The roster of chefs that are featured range from Bibendum Oyster Bar’s Claude Bosi to John Li from the Dumpling Shack.

It’s a brand new concept that enables friends to get together in a safe yet stylish environment, whilst also supporting the hospitality industry and allowing chefs to get back to what they love to do.

“I came up with APT about a month into lockdown. The pandemic brought the industry to its knees, so I guess the idea was born from a love for my chef friends and all their restaurants… I was eyeing up restaurant projects pre-lockdown, but even as government guidelines change, the future of restaurants is yet to be determined. Social-distancing measures have been tweaked, but there are still so many hurdles. So, coming up with a creative solution for getting together is what I was aiming for. I also wanted to provide a platform that offered safe spaces for my chef friends to get back to doing what they do best” said Richard Lee Massey.

The concept is simple; guests select a date they would like to get together with their friends, be that for a celebratory dinner, engagement party or business lunch, choose from either breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, and finally choose the chef or restaurant of their choice to cook for them.
