Nowhere does Beaujolais Day quite like Swansea City Centre, and we’re pleased to see so many BID area businesses gearing up for a busy day on Thursday, 21 November.
Some of the many ‘go-to’ places for visitors who are planning a French-themed day of celebration include; the Pitcher and Piano, which has lined up live entertainment from Fonz and the Poet, Juniper Place, which has added extra tables due to demand, La Braseria and La Prensa, with their signature continental menus fitting snugly with the Beaujolais theme, while Las Iguanas has a set menu. The Dragon Hotel is offering a drink on arrival, a four-course meal and live entertainment package, and another including an overnight stay – a great solution if visitors have one glass too many. There are other lively and inventive offerings lined up at The Three Lamps, the No Sign Wine Bar, The Perch, Old Havana, Morgans, Bar No 6, The Grand Hotel and others.
Russell Greenslade, Swansea BID Chief Executive, said: “There are as many theories around why Swansea is the UK hotspot for Beaujolais Day, just as there are around the origins of the term Swansea Jack. Swansea has always seen itself as a unique, quirky place, with a very individual identity. Embracing Beaujolais Day is typical of this independent spirit.
“We do know that Beaujolais Day is one of the key calendar dates for City Centre businesses and the event is good for the local economy as a whole, be it across clothing, the beauty businesses, and, of course hospitality. What started out as just a few businesses taking part has now turned into a celebration for all, with attractive offers and events to help showcase the great food and drink options we have in the heart of the City Centre. Let’s make it one to remember!”Tags: Beaujolais Day, Juniper Place, La Prensa, Las Iguanas, Morgans, No6, Old Havana, Swansea, Swansea City Centre, The Grand Hotel, The Perch
