Due to open at the end of 2021, the still unnamed 1,400 square foot restaurant and cafe will have a capacity of 60 diners with additional outdoor seating.
The site will focus on sustainability and will feature sustainably sourced materials and use solar panels to minimize its environmental footprint.
It will be part of the £ 135million Copr Bay Phase 1 regeneration program centered on a new 3,500-seat arena to be operated by Ambassador Theater Group. Copr Bay Phase One is funded and developed by the Swansea Council, with the arena component partly funded by the Swansea Bay City Deal. The Swansea Bay City Deal is a £ 1.3 billion investment fund that includes funding from the UK and Welsh governments and the private sector and will create 1,260 jobs.
The family-owned The Secret Hospitality Group is owned and managed 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 like an odd decision to move to a new restaurant during the pandemic, we haven’t thought twice when this opportunity arose,” said Ryan Hole.
“Swansea Council’s transformation of the £ 1billion town is a vote of confidence in the future of the region and will provide opportunities for people like us and businesses like ours. Our latest restaurant will be a new landmark for Swansea, being part of a whole new destination for residents and visitors to enjoy great food and drink, and just steps from the arena and our beautiful coastline .
“We are excited to be part of and play a role in the transformation of our city.
