Stayed here over the last few weeks when in south Wales on business. I have to say this is the best small hotel in the uk that I've stayed in.

Verve 37

Is a new tapas bar and restaurant based in the heart of Uplands. If you are looking for a relaxing ambience in which to unwind after a stressful day, or simply want to catch up with friends over a glass of wine and bite to eat, Verve 37 provides the perfect environment. We offer an extensive list of beverages and a tapas menu which you can choose to consume in the downstairs bar area, or on the terrace.

The restaurant on the first floor is open from 12 midday for lunch and from 6pm in the evenings, offering a exclusive menu devised and introduced by one of Swansea's finest chefs.

Gower Kitchen - Open everyday from 12:00 till 23:00

Next door to the Verve - Is a laid back ‘Lounge Bistro Bar' situated in the heart of Uplands. Unique and quirky the Gower Kitchen offers honest tasty food in a casual environment. Come and try our award winning fresh seasonal food produced from scratch by our dedicated team of chiefs. Enjoy wine, bear and cocktails from our well stocked bar, or come and indulge with a piece of homemade cake and a cup of freshly ground coffee or loose leaf tea.

Wasabi

Next door to the Gower Kitchen - This is the renounced Japanese sushi chain based in the heart of Uplands. With nearly 40 links to their chain of restaurants across the UK; Wasabi has become the King of Sushi. We've put together a wide range of choices for you. Our chefs put a lot of time and effort into making your sushi look and taste fantastic, Wasabi, is a member of the Brassicaceae family, which includes cabbages, horseradish, and mustard. It is also called Japanese horseradish, although it is not actually from the horseradish species of plants.

Vietnam

Opposite Wasabi - Totally authentic ‘Vietnamese Food' situated in the heart of Uplands. If you love Oriental foods, then this will simply blow you away. Talked about as one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in the UK, where it is spoken that people will literally travel hundreds of miles and even fly from overseas just to eat here. This alone speaks volumes.

The Chattery | Gig List

Opposite ‘The Tavern' - This restaurant is a family run business located in the heart of the Uplands since 1977 local Swansea bands regularly appear as well as touring artists from the UK and America. The Chattery is a wonderfully intimate venue to se some great music, have some lovingly prepaired food and indulge in a glass of beer or wine. We only book acts we want to see, so your guaranteed quality (if you agree with our taste).

Noah's Yard

Next door to ‘The Vietnamese' - For fine wine - coffee and cocktails  and Jazz - based in the heart of Uplands. The place to be seen and sometimes heard - Noah has transformed the Uplands, some say singlehandedly, into a unique venue that brings together art and music. Therefore, live Jazz can be heard Monday evenings

The Tavern



Next door to Noah's Yard - Known affectionately as The Most Famous Pub in all South Wales.

‘The Tav' as it is known to its regulars, is one of South Wales best live music Venues. They have a mix of local and touring bands playing from Jazz to Pop – Blues to Rock, there's something for everyone. They serve excellent beer, wine and spirits. We are sure you will still love catching up with friends in our welcoming pub, check our 'what's on' tab to see what's coming up soon! 

The Garage

Above Wasabi – Uplands premier music venue. The Garage opened at the end of 2008, as a live music and events venue in the heart of the Uplands. Whether it has been bands, DJ's or comedians and poets; we have seen a rich variety of acts pass through our doors to show the audiences what they've got. We don't do gimmicks and we don't charge a fortune. The Garage works on one main principle: Simplicity. We have an excellent sound system, friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere - no matter how big the parties get....!!

Kan Zaman
Authentic Lebanese Restaurant. The Kan Zaman Restaurant in Swansea is the first Lebanese restaurant in Swansea and arguably the best in South Wales. A small, relaxed and friendly restaurant with an open kitchen, the food is authentically Lebanese rather than the tourist version offered in some restaurants.(Vegetarians will be in their element)

Truffles
Next door to the Lebanese - A blend of French & Moroccan Quinine. Any restaurant this popular must be doing something right – and at Truffle the winning formula seems to be great prices, proper home cooking, a wide-ranging menu & a BYO drinks policy.
