Bar One; Wales Millenium Centre – Cardiff Bay

10 May

The Place

I love the Millennium Centre.


I honestly think it is one of the best things about Wales. Over the years I’ve seen some brilliant things in the main hall, such as Yes Prime Minister; Derren Brown; One Man Two Guvnors etc, and some really random things in the smaller theatres where it has just been me, my wife and if we were lucky a few other people scattered around the seats.


Bar One itself is an attractive open plan area with large windows to allow you to sit, drink your hot chocolate and watch the world of the Bay pass you by. There are few places better than Cardiff Bay in the sunshine and with outside seating Bar One is ideal. As a fully licensed venue it’s also great for a quiet afternoon tipple. The inside is an homage to the WMC’s past successes with signed posters of Les Miserables, Oliver and Mama Mia.

The service can be a bit slow but I’m always cheered by the lovely lady who works there insting on calling me ‘sweetie.’

The Hot chocolate


As regular readers (are there any readers let alone regular ones?) will know, I am partial to whipped cream with my hot chocolate. Sadly none comes with the order at Bar One. However, the froth of the drink is particularly creamy. There is a lovely milk chocolate flavour and smooth texture. Definitely a hot chocolate to appreciate.

The Carrot Cake

I didn’t have a piece on this occasion but a very tempting carrot cake was on display and will be reviewed soon.

The Rest

One thing that has to be said about Bar One is that they do exceptional caramel slices.
