Event | Cocktails and Canapés at 29 Park Place.

A few weeks ago I was invited along to a press launch for a new restaurant opening in Cardiff. I took Dan along with me and we were both very excited to see what 29 Park Place had to offer.
Champagne flutes for the guests
Yummy cocktails - and so Instagrammable.
The place itself is really cool. It has a quirky, relaxed vibe emphasised by the interior décor and funky surroundings. The restaurant is built to resemble an old-school house, with various sections being split into different “rooms”. For example, the bar is the “kitchen” and there is an area called the “lounge” with comfy chairs and tables surrounding televisions where you can sit back and relax and even play X-Box. (That’s where Dan spent much of the evening!)

Seriously bad hair day but who cares when there's champagne?
We loved the funky light fixtures and quirky deer decor.
We were handed a champagne flute and were given a tour and shown all the innovative design ideas. We really liked how the menus were stored in old video cases and the funky light features and colour schemes. 29 Park Place had a sort-of nineties vibe, which was brought bang up to date with the lavish furniture and artwork.

We loved the sleek and sophisticated feel.

After a little look around we ordered some cocktails and were brought out some of their dishes to try. The cocktails were Jam Berry, which were ice cold and super fruity and really delicious. They were really refreshing with a slight kick, which we loved. We also got to try some of their curry, which was tasty but really hot so we couldn’t eat it all as we’re both not a fan of spicy foods, and some meatballs and spaghetti which was amazing. It’s safe to say we were extremely impressed and we will be returning for some cocktails and meatballs in the near future.
The Jam Berry Cocktails were delicious.
Curry and rice - HOT!
Spaghetti, meatballs and heaps of cheese - my favourite!

The press launch was a success and I was really glad to have been invited. The staff were fabulous and couldn’t do enough for us, and the place is really innovative and funky, so great if you’re after something a little different from the usual chain store restaurants you eat at. It has a unique twist with the 90s theme and I really loved the food and drinks. If you’re from South Wales or even South West England, definitely take a trip into Cardiff and try out 29 Park Place.

Lots of love,

  4. Using a VHS cover as menu is a very creative and brilliant idea, I never even thought of that. It looks like a really good event and the spaghetti and meatballs look absolutely scrumptious.
