Golf-obsessed Gareth Bale’s golf bar ready to kick off in the new year

Spurs’ prodigal son and golf-crazy Gareth Bale is set to tee-off his Par 59 golf bar for adults, a new golf-themed concept bar being primed to launch in Cardiff in the New Year, according to Business Live.

Par 59 will feature a bar, restaurant and mini golf course, and was due to open in Wales earlier this summer but plans have been pushed back for early 2021 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

This will mark the second of Bale’s business ventures in the hospitality sector following his partnership with Brains and Brewery and the Elevens Bar & Grill in Cardiff three years ago.

Developed by the team behind indoor street food market, The Depot, plans are in place to expand the Par 59 brand moving forwards, according to Bale.

“We’ve seen the popularity of hybrid destinations and how kind of fun it is, but obviously at the moment we want to focus on Cardiff, establishing Par 59 and getting the business correct in Cardiff,” Bale told Business Live.

“Then if everything goes well we would look to go nationally and internationally. We believe in what we are doing and the aim is to become as big as we can.”

Bale moved back to Tottenham Hotspur last month, just seven years after leaving the North London club.

The 31-year-old left Spurs for Real Madrid for a then-world record fee of £85 million in 2013 and has gone on to win four Champions League titles and score more than 100 goals for the Spanish club, but he has now rejoined Spurs on a season-long loan deal.

As yet, due to injuries, the winger has not played a game since his move back to Tottenham. He is back in training this week, but remains a doubt to play in their crunch Premier League match against Manchester United at Old Trafford this Sunday.
