Bonus arena launch new restaurant named after Van Morrison song

Guests visiting Hull’s newest entertainment venue will now be able to eat prior to events in a brand new restaurant.

The Moondance restaurant – situated on the first floor of the Bonus Arena opened on Friday 6th April on the evening of the sold out Ant Middleton show.

Moondance, named after a song from Van Morrison who officially opened the venue in August 2018, will be open prior to the start of events taking place at the Bonus Arena. Menus have been created by our on-site food and beverage team and will be prepared in the venue’s kitchen using as much locally sourced produce as possible.

Guests who dine in the restaurant will be able to enjoy dishes such as; beef & fine bean Malayan rendang curry with coriander rice, or for fish lovers; grilled salmon with green beans, new potatoes, sundried tomatoes & black olives and vegetarians aren’t left out either with a delicious crisp tofu, oyster mushroom & cashew coconut laksa with a coconut rice.

The restaurant – which is decorated with iconic photographs of acts who have graced the Bonus Arena stage – will only be open when the arena is hosting an event. Places must be booked in advance.

Dan Harris, General Manager at the Bonus Arena, said: “We are delighted to now open our restaurant which will serve delicious meals prepared by our own chef in our own kitchen. We can cater for groups or individuals who are looking to make their visit to the Bonus Arena extra special.

“We felt it was fitting to name the restaurant in honour of Van Morrison, who opened the Bonus Arena last summer and lyrics from Moondance feature on the wall of the restaurant, alongside photographs of some of the artists live on our stage.”
