Nine of Swansea’s Best Beer Gardens and Outdoor Restaurant Spaces for Your First Post-lockdown Beer or Cocktail
Apr 15, 2021
The countdown is on for the reopening of hospitality within Swansea city centre, with the Welsh Government’s roadmap out of lockdown allowing outdoor hospitality to reopen in Wales from 26 April, as long as infection rates remain low.
Our much-loved restaurants, bars and pubs have been closed for so long and we can’t think of a better reason to support local businesses by getting the beers and cocktails in. Please see our graphic below for important safety information to help us keep the rules in mind.
Which beer garden in Swansea will you visit first? Here are nine great places to do so.
The Crosskeys Pub, St Mary’s Street
If you’re counting down the days to hold a cold pint in your hand again, there’s no better place than The Crosskeys Pub. Found in the centre of Swansea, The Crosskeys Pub offers delicious food and a great selection of drinks. Expect to find ales, beers, gins and wine, all served in a relaxed beer-garden atmosphere from April 26.
The Crosskeys is not taking bookings, so walk-ins are welcome.
Pitcher & Piano, Wind Street
Bottomless brunch in the sun has never sounded so appealing. Pitcher & Piano has now opened bookings for its outdoor terrace, promising a summer of fun.
You’ll have to wait a few more weeks to grab a booth inside but, in the meantime, you can spend an afternoon trying out their food and drinks menu. Which drink will you be ordering first?
Six Swansea, Princess Way
Six Swansea on Princess Way has expanded its outdoor seating area to allow a number of outdoor bookings from April 26. Their colourful new tables and chairs reflect their delicious range of creative cocktails from daiquiris to margaritas and martinis.
You may have been treated to a cocktail care package from Six during lockdown but nothing is going to taste better than the real thing on April 26.
La Braseria, Wind Street
It’s nearly time to join La Braseria on their brand-new undercover, outdoor dining area. A firm local favourite for their quality wines, and fresh meat and seafood, La Braseria is the perfect choice for a post-lockdown treat.
Who needs a holiday when you have this incredible cuisine on offer so nearby?
Juniper Place, York Street
The outdoor space at Juniper Place has one of the best Swansea beer gardens for people watching while enjoying a G&T, made with Swansea’s Cygnet Gin which is distilled on site.
Bookings are already flying so be sure to head to the website to book soon.
Savana, Wind Street
It seems like a lifetime ago since we partied on a Saturday night in Savana. Although we can’t head inside quite yet, the cocktail bar has plenty of outside space, so the cocktails are back on from April 26.
Savana will be operating on a first come, first serve basis so head down and grab your space on Wind Street.
Swigg Swansea, Waterfront Museum
Swigg Swansea has tons of undercover seating, so you can enjoy their range of cocktails come rain or shine. Visitors are treated to an eye-catching view of Swansea Marina as they enjoy their food and drinks from the fairy-lit beer garden.
The Swigg is not taking bookings, instead operating on a first come, first served basis.
Morgans Hotel – Somerset Place
Morgans Hotel, Swansea city centre’s only boutique hotel, boasts a gorgeous sun-trapped terrace. Just imagine it – the sun is shining, there’s a hummer of excited chatter around you and your drink is cold and refreshing. It’s on the way!
Head to their website where you can now book into one of their beautiful rooms after an evening on their terrace area.
Zinco Lounge – Princess Way
Zinco Lounge is a classy spot to grab brunch, lunch, dinner or just some drinks. Their spacious outdoor seating area near Zara is the perfect stop post-shopping. Their delicious selection of tapas pairs perfectly with a glass of prosecco or fruity cocktail.
We couldn’t quite make our home cocktails look this good, could you?
