A community initiative offering an alternative social space on Saturday nights, announces its reopening on February 3 after a successful first two months during the autumn season.

Dill’s After Dark, hosted at Dill’s Cafe, has been warmly received by the community, providing a laid-back and secure environment for women and non-binary individuals seeking an alternative to the bustling bar and club scene in Falmouth.

Recognising the need for prioritizing the safety of women, non-binary people, and those who may be 'othered' in Falmouth town, the project aims to address concerns and foster an environment of inclusivity.

After a brief hiatus, the project is excited to resume its Saturday night sessions, creating a cosy haven off the main high street.

In addition to offering a chill vibe, Dill’s After Dark is committed to the well-being of its patrons.

The project has collaborated with Cornwall and Devon Police to provide free Check Your Drink kits and is a certified C-Card outlet with Brooke Cornwall, offering free condoms to those aged between 18 and 25 with a valid C-Card.

'Useful numbers' cards, featuring helpline and emergency service contact information, have also been made available to further promote safety during nights out.

To add a touch of European evening cafe vibes, Dill’s After Dark will be serving bespoke cocktails, olives, vegan and vegetarian toasties until late, along with a selection of hot drinks. The aim is to create an atmosphere reminiscent of a relaxed European evening café.
