Bar 44 to open third site

Welsh tapas chain Bar 44 is to open its third site, this time in the centre of Cardiff, creating 30 new jobs.

The business has signed a lease on premises in Westgate Street in the Castle Quarter area of the city, in what was Feather and Bone. The 3,600 sq ft space will be able to accommodate 120 covers, according to

The move follows on from the success of its earlier sites in Cowbridge and Penarth.

Bar 44 is owned by brothers Tom and Owen Morgan. Owen said: "We've always wanted to expand our operation beyond Cowbridge and Penarth.

"Previously we've focused on opening in affluent, suburban locations, but as the popularity of Cardiff city centre's food scene has grown among both independent and national restaurants, it has become a focus for us.

"With ambitions to put Wales on the map for our contemporary twist on Spanish cuisine, opening a restaurant in the capital city seems like a natural progression.

"We are looking forward to adding our version of modern Spanish tapas to the rich independent food scene in the capital city."
