Problem with the area on the old leisure centre is that you'd have to either set up a portable bar or only flog bottles/cans as it's too far to carry pints from any pubs. In a bigger city I reckon that site would have been snapped up for temporary use as one of these Stacks places or similar. It's big enough and really well connected.
That's Manilla Street's plaque actually nothing to do with the Vic.the area is called The Cedars
It's Grangetown. Go in and ask Sean's missus when it gets going.It's Hendon. Over ryhope road is ashbrooke. Even their address is hendon.
