We’re super excited to announce that we are expanding the brand and hoping to welcome Club House number 3 mid 2022.
We’re introducing The Club House brand to Mermaid Quay, Schroder UK Real Estate Fund’s (‘SREF’) popular 150,000 sq ft mixed-use destination on the waterfront in Cardiff Bay.
Our new relaxed dining bar/restaurant will be located in the heart of Mermaid Quay, as part of a high-profile, 9,000 sq ft two-storey unit – complete with balcony area overlooking Tacoma Square and Cardiff Bay.
Fitting out work is due to begin soon, and it is anticipated that our newest location will open in mid-2022. The Club House was originally launched in Liverpool in 2016 but grew to become a multi-city brand with the opening of a venue in Plymouth in May 2021.
There’s nothing better in the world than having that first drink on holiday. Feeling the weight lifted off your shoulders, knowing, that you’ve escaped from the everyday and left all the hustle and bustle behind. That’s the feeling we aim to provide on every visit to The Club House.
