CAFFI BAR YR HEN LYFRGELL

The Cafe Bar is the heart of Cardiff’s Welsh Cultural Centre, Yr Hen Lyfrgell (The Old Library).  Run by Milk&Sugar it’s a place to eat, drink, work and socialise –  all the while absorbing Wales’ contemporary culture in a Cardiff city centre location.  Watching the world go by on The Hayes, customers can sample the best of fresh, Welsh produce; sip on local beers, and catch up with friends and family over coffee and cake.  The bold, geometric, Bowie-esque lines, forms and colours; birch plywood fixtures and industrial details result in a cutting-edge cafe-bar design which sits in harmonious contrast to the architectural features of the host building.
