INTRODUCING WIND STREET'S LATEST ADDITION: WALK TOWARDS THE FLICKERING LIGHT!
There’s been a brand new addition to Wind Street, and we don’t know about you but we’re dying to find out if it’s any good. Let’s get to know a little more about our new neighbours and see if their light will shine brighter than their competitors around them.
FLICKERING LIGHT HAS OPENED IN SWANSEA!
Wind Street is known as the place to be on a night out in Swansea. All the best bars can be found here conveniently located on one long stretch of road in the city centre. So it’s understandable why this bar has picked this prime location to open shop.
Step through a doorway under a, you guessed it, flickering light next door to Bambu and climb the stairs to find a new steampunk ale house. With its shabby chic vintage feel, Flickering Light stands out amongst the modern clean lines of its competition. It may even win the title of the coolest bar on the street.
Kitted out with oddities of the last half a century, a 1950s truck takes pride of place as a recently converted bar space. Let’s just hope they’ve put the handbrake on!
Once visitors have grabbed a drink they can take a stroll to the other bar which has a Victorian science fiction theme, admire the antiques or scan over the drinks offers clearly displayed on real church hymn boards.
Many of the walls are covered with old black and white newspapers or magazines, school benches provide seating and piles of books line the stairs. Keep an eye out for the cool graffiti, including the outline of a man on the corridor floor and another sporting some lovely red braces.
VISITING FLICKERING LIGHT
This building is said to date back to 1803 and, believe us, a visit here is like a step back in time – in a good way of course. The owners have done a brilliant job of making a unique venue which is well worth a visit during a night out or weekend away in our beautiful city.
Flickering Light is open Wednesday to Saturday, 5pm to 3am, so if you’re thinking of visiting soon make sure to book some nearby accommodation where you can lay your weary (and slightly drunk) head after.
Here at the Dragon Hotel we offer modern, clean accommodation in a prime location in the centre of Swansea. Our Dragon Brasserie makes the perfect place to dine before a night out and with our affordable prices we think a decision of where to stay is a no brainer.
