Bless you.

No, I’m fine thanks. ZAZU is a new Irish-founded booking and payment app to help restaurants, bars, cafes, nightclubs and retail outlets reopen with virtually contactless service.

Ian Collins writes:

As government restrictions begin to ease, businesses are looking for ways to deal with the new normal of social distancing. The ZAZU service offers an all-in-one solution that is continuously updated and modified in line with government regulations.

The app offers functions similar to OpenTable, Deliveroo and Ticketmaster all under one roof from order to payment and delivery

The app also assists with capacity management ensuring government guidelines can be adhered to at all times.

A virtual queuing system is also helpful for those who haven’t planned ahead…they can join an online queuing system where they will be alerted once a space becomes available

….customers can wait in a comfortable and safe setting away from the location until they are alerted…

Dublin City Council together with Dublin Town, An Garda Síochána and the National Transport Authority are supporting a joint informative reopening campaign called ‘Easing Like Sunday Mornings’.


While some large retailers have said they will reopen today, others including Arnotts, Brown Thomas and Penneys have decided to defer for a few more days in order to take additional time to get prepared, following Friday’s announcement that all retailers could resume trade.

Shop owners have warned the shopping experience will be very different to the way it was before the pandemic, with browsing likely to be discouraged in many stores, queuing required and additional hygiene measures in place.
