Swift Staff Relief Fund

It’s a challenging time for the world. Each day seems to be a new battle in a war that could go on for a while.

As medical professionals battle on the frontlines heroically every day around the world, we must do what we can to help them. Social distancing is our chief weapon in this.

As the team at Swift practices social distancing and staying home, it must be said we dearly miss our third place. Our other home.
It’s been an easily adopted ethos in the near 25 years of Swift Hibernian Lounge that a pub is only as good as the people that fill it. The people that lift it up to make it something special. It is for this reason alone that we feel like we have a good thing going here.

Although currently it may feel like we are trudging forwards into the unknown, we know we can count on the character, resilience and love of our brothers and sisters both here in NYC and around the world to stay strong.

Although we might not have a date, we do have a place. Swift looks forward to safely opening our doors again and welcoming you all back. It can easily feel like a dream right now, but each day that passes is one day closer to being back for a pint.

In the meantime, our family here at swift have been faced with a mountain that we need help conquering. Just like the majority working in hospitality, our staff are currently staying home with no form of income. We have set up a go fund me page to help our team with their expenses over this difficult time. If you are in any way able to contribute, we would be extremely grateful.

We kindly ask all of our family and friends, if they have a moment to spare in their day, to think forward to
-How good the songs are gonna be;
-How good its going to be to see everybody in the flesh,
-How good its gonna feel to hug everyone;
-How good it’s gonna feel when it sets in that we have got through it.
