Project Scope:

Vibrant competitive socialising encompassing two 9-hole bespoke golf courses for an adult-only venue

About the Project

Par 59 is a new collaboration between Gareth Bale’s Elevens Group and Cardiff’s creative events company, The DEPOT. The story behind it? Only a handful of golfers have ever shot a score of 59… so inspired by this elite performance, Par 59 is a sleek new premier bar experience with a twist – which originally began in the lively city of Cardiff.

Bristol’s version is nestled nicely within the vibrant harbourside and brings with it a sleek and classy bar offering everything from cocktails to craft beers.

Next to the bar is independent kitchen Dirty Bird (known as Dirty Birdie especially for the venue) offering delicious chicken, nachos, burgers, fries and more – but at centre stage is the jewel in the bar’s crown… two 9-hole mini golf courses with a colourful twist on each bespoke hole.

Packed full of games to tempt any fan of competitive play, each with their own challenge and often Par-59-esque props, the courses weave through the heart of the venue and allow visitors to play through in groups, or as a pair, whilst enjoying a delicious drink.

Altogether, the venue boasts 15,000 sq ft of bar and restaurant space, two custom-designed, mini golf courses and a separate darts room with four augmented darts boards, with the entire venue holding a max capacity of 500.

Greenspan were delighted to create the bespoke golf holes for both courses – from the initial design concepts to the innovative props and completed sleek structures equipped with lighting and colour-changing golf cups. As always, it was important to work closely with the client to ensure that the vision has been brought to life – and the Par 59 team really know how to create quirky and nostalgic themes! They have thus created a fun and immersive venue that will provide countless colourful and eccentric backdrops for Instagrammable pictures… that won’t even require much of a filter!

The holes include Duck Shoot, The Glory Hole, Carousel, Cue it Up and Cards and Dice… taking visitors on a journey through various nostalgic games from all different eras.
