A Wind Street betting shop could be transformed into Swansea’s first Board Game Café.
Local man, Christopher Grove from Loughor has submitted a change of use application to Swansea Council to transform the former Ladbrokes.
In his planning application, Mr Grove says he intends to sell light food and snacks such as sandwiches and panini and drinks. He is also intending to apply for a licenced premises application to be able to serve alcohol to those sitting down playing board games at the venue.
Mr Grove added: “Our Board Game Cafe business will offer a selection of approximately 400 board games which customers can pay a cover charge to play.
“Our staff will be ‘game guru’s’ who can help explain rules, recommend new games and give advice.
“We would be a family friendly destination and safe place for everyone to come and socialise, have great food and drink and play board games.”
The proposal is just a few doors down from the new Wagamama restaurant which will be opening at the former Frankie and Benny’s at The City Gates on the corner of Wind Street and Victoria Road.
Construction work is currently being carried out by South Wales contractor Griffiths on behalf of Swansea Council, to make Wind Street a more family friendly environment.
