Due to open at the end of 2021 the as yet unnamed 1,400sq ft restaurant and café will have capacity for 60 diners with additional outside seating space.
The venue will have sustainability at its heart of and will feature materials from sustainable sources and use solar panels to minimise its environmental footprint.
It will be part of the £135m Copr Bay Phase One regeneration scheme centred on a new 3,500-capacity arena that will be operated by Ambassador Theatre Group. Copr Bay Phase One is being funded and developed by Swansea Council, with the arena element part-funded by the Swansea Bay City Deal. The Swansea Bay City Deal is a £1.3bn investment fund that includes funding from the UK and Welsh Governments and the private sector and will create 1,260 jobs.
The family-run The Secret Hospitality Group is owned and run by Ryan and Lucy Hole, who also own The Secret Beach Bar & Kitchen and The Optimist Bar & Kitchen, both in Swansea.
“While it might seem an odd decision to commit to a new restaurant during the pandemic, we did not think twice when this opportunity came knocking,” says Ryan Hole.
“Swansea Council’s £1bn transformation of the city is a vote of confidence in the future of the area and will offer opportunities to people like us and businesses like ours. Our latest restaurant will be a new landmark for Swansea, part of a brand new destination for residents and visitors to enjoy great food and drink, and just a stone’s throw away from the arena and our stunning coastline.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of the transformation of our city and to play a part in it.”
