Gareth Bale is continuing his entrepreneurial career as he prepares to open his second bar in Cardiff later in 2020.
It will have a golf theme and be called ‘Par 59’.
The Real Madrid forward, who already has another bar in the centre of Cardiff called ‘Elevens’ (with a football focus), has been greatly involved in the designing and organisation of ‘Par 59’ ahead of its launch, having travelled to Cardiff several times in recent months to supervise the project and give his opinion to architects.
Bale’s bar, which will be in the basement of a city centre building, will boast several mini golf courses.
The scale of this project perhaps demonstrates that the Welsh winger is now preparing for life after football.
“I am not going to play football forever, so we are interested in doing this type of business, especially in Wales,” Bale told the Welsh media.
“This business [Par 59] brings people together who like to go out, drink or not, and play golf, which is a passion for many people here.”
