Observatory Cafe, Bar

Observatory Café / Bar, Slipway Road, Maritime Quarter, Swansea SA1 1YB

 

The former astronomical observatory, The Tower of the Ecliptic (see above under Community/Public) , was vacated by Swansea Astronomical Society several years ago and the building marketed nationally by the City and County of Swansea. The successful bidder has commissioned these plans for a conversion of the lower two levels to be extended as a café/bar, backed up by the second floor (converted to staff and toilets), with a self-catering flat on the upper levels to let. The astronomical use will continue for both uses, as both the new public balcony at first floor and the flat upper level will contain telescopes.

The project under construction, April 2017. Building contract by Thomas Parry Design Partnership. The building is due to open in June 2017.
