The brand new bar and kitchen, the Society Standard, will open on Whitchurch Road in Cardiff on July 21.
Work on the interior of the new bar is now well advanced, and the interior will have a retro, stripped down feel with exposed brickwork and some decorative features specially designed for the new Cardiff bar.
On the menu side, there will be something to delight both comfort food lovers and gourmets.
A range of favorites from sister branches – The Urban Standard and North Street Standard – will be served at the Cardiff bar, including burgers, ribs, truffled mac and cheese and at weekends a real Sunday roast served with roasts, yorkies, gravy, seasonal vegetables and cauliflower cheese.
For those looking for something lighter, the specialty menu will be full of salads, small plates and a ‘fresh caught’ fish of the day dish.
Contemporary art from Bristol’s Upfest gallery will grace the walls, including works exclusively commissioned from artists like Cheo and Rob Wass. Guests can also enjoy a pint of ‘Double Standard’, a delicious lager brewed by Arbor Ales, one of Bristol’s best-known microbreweries.
Co-manager Dom Wood, who lived in Cardiff for 10 years, said: “We love adding a bit of Bristol personality to our bars that our new Welsh customers will immediately spot.
“That being said, the local focus is also very important to us, and that goes to everything from the food and beverage suppliers we use for our menus, to our team staff.”
