First look inside Gareth Bale’s new Par 59 Cardiff city center mini-golf bar

New photos have been released of a golf-themed bar in partnership with Gareth Bale set to open in Cardiff city centre. Par59 is a new bar, restaurant and mini golf course which is a partnership between the famous footballer and the faces behind DEPOT – one of the most successful business ventures in town.

The bar has taken over the huge 23,000 square foot site of the former Liquid/Life nightclub on St Mary Street and will open to the public on March 182022. The new site, which will welcome 18+, features two 9-hole mini-golf courses – one named ‘The Player’ and the other ‘The Valentine’ to maintain the bar theme for adults.

Each hole on each course has a drinks station meaning you can drink while you putt, there will also be caddies coming around to take your orders during the course. Dirty Bird street food vendors will provide food for the business after creating a new catering menu for the venue.

Dirty Birdie will serve a custom menu of buttermilk fried chicken dishes, as well as all-new vegan options, for up to 164 seats at a time. Phase two of the site – expected to be a second floor-based pool hall – will open at a later date. The Par 59 marks a second step into the hotel sector for the star footballer, after the opening of Eleven’s Bar & Grill in Cardiff in 2017.

Nick Saunders, Founder and Managing Director of Depot and Co-Founder of Par 59, said: “The whole concept started about three years ago. I thought it was a brilliant idea that would work really well in Cardiff, so we set out to try to find a large space which obviously is quite difficult in the downtown area because you need the attendance. At the time Capitol became available and we thought “yeah we can do in so that it works”.

“Then the covid hit which got us thinking a bit closer and it just so happened that this site on St Mary Street popped up which is obviously a slightly better place for footfall. It was something we had to try It’s a great place, there’s a lot of history in this place for nightlife, it’s nice to bring something back to the venue and keep people coming back through the doors.

“I think generally people go out these days and want to have an experience and want to do something. I think it’s a huge thing in the north of the UK, but it hasn’t not quite hitting South Wales and the South West yet is a huge opportunity.

“It’s kind of fun. Once the music is on, you have the cocktails, the drinks, the Dirty Bird food – or Dirty Birdie as they’re called around here – I think that’s the whole experience.”
