Coppa Club Has Opened the Doors to The Cardiff Townhouse

Coppa Club Has Opened the Doors to The Cardiff Townhouse

Coppa Club opened the doors of its first Welsh location, The Cardiff Townhouse, on Monday, 13th May 2024, bringing the iconic David Morgan department store back to life with an all-day socialising, bar, café and dining venue set right in the heart of The Hayes. The buzzy atmosphere – from early to late – has all-day spaces for work and play, from morning coffees to late-night cocktails.

The Cardiff Townhouse is set over two separate floors, with a different vibe on each level. Guests are welcomed into the dog-friendly ground floor, which has its own bar—open early morning for coffee, work-from-space, and post-shopping lounging. As the day progresses, the atmosphere gets livelier, the drinks flow, and guests settle in for the night.

Upstairs, the first floor is anchored by the Atrium Bar – a horseshoe-shaped cocktail bar set under a historic skylight.

The first floor has a brasserie and two unique spaces that can be taken over for private events and get togethers. From the intimate snug and private dining room, to the larger restaurant that can be used exclusively.

Rebecca Tooth, Managing Director of Coppa Club, commented, “We are hugely excited to announce the opening of The Cardiff Townhouse on May 13th. Building on the success of The Bath Townhouse and Guildford Townhouse, we are delighted to be opening our third Townhouse location in one of the most iconic areas of Cardiff. We are fortunate to be opening in a building steeped in history and envision it becoming a real go-to in the city for drinks, dining, and events.”

Based at The Morgan Quarter in central Cardiff, the Cardiff Townhouse has reinvigorated the historic David Morgan Department Store on The Hayes. The Cardiff Townhouse location ensures that it is easily accessible to all.

The Hayes is an attractive meeting place for residents and visitors due to its pedestrian layout, numerous shops nearby and its proximity to Cardiff Central Train Station and the Principality Stadium, which are both reachable within a 10-minute walk.

Coppa Club has sympathetically exposed and restored this beloved Cardiff landmark, which includes the decorative cornices and cast-iron columns originally designed by Edwin Seward in 1899 that have been concealed by years of retail interior refurbishments.

The reinstated architectural features complement the fresh design, including a new staircase that winds its way to the first-floor brasserie and cocktail bar, The Atrium, which sits under the decorative skylight – the jewel in the crown of this unique space.

The interior design effortlessly transitions from bright mornings to relaxed afternoons and from twilight evenings to intimate nights, adjusting to the mood of the occasion.

Food & Drink
Coppa Club is known for providing the very best elements of a café, bar, restaurant and lounge – all combined into one unique Townhouse setting. The seasonal menu at The Cardiff Townhouse will feature a modern take on British and Mediterranean classics, including small plates, sourdough pizzas, fresh pasta and high-quality meat and fish.

Coppa Club provides an inclusive dining experience by catering to various dietary requirements, including vegan, gluten-free, and nut allergies.

Exclusivity & Private Events
The unique feature of The Cardiff Townhouse lies in its various spaces. The restaurant on the first floor can be taken over in its entirety – a rare offering in Cardiff that seats up to 43 guests or more for standing events.

The venue also boasts an intimate private dining room with its own snug for pre- and post-drinks, which seats up to 12 guests.

The upstairs bar, The Atrium, offers a glamorous setting beneath a historic structure, perfect for sipping expertly crafted cocktails. Whether it’s a private celebration or a sporting affair, The Cardiff Townhouse promises a stylish experience in the city’s heart.

The latest addition in its expanding portfolio, The Cardiff Townhouse marks Coppa Club’s first venture in Wales and becomes the company’s 13th location.
