Located just off Newport Road in Cardiff, UK; Spit & Sawdust was opened in 2014 by Christian Hart and Nia Metcalfe.
Born out of the need for an indoor skateboarding space in Cardiff and although primarily a skatepark, Spit & Sawdust caters to a variety of people in the area and hosts a wealth of events, performances and exhibitions.
Spit & Sawdust really is everything we love at Cardiff Cyclist. Independent, sustainable, D.I.Y, local and bike-friendly.
Whilst a food review would fall so easily from our recently tantalised taste buds, we’ll leave that to Chile Bites, a true foodie with a super-rad blog about it all.
The desire to live and work sustainably is evident when you get chatting to Christian and Nia who both utilise bicycles for transport in Cardiff. The ethos is an ethical one and bike-friendliness within their business is clearly a part of that.
“They have absolutely hit the nail on the head – without the designer price-tag”
Whether you go for a coffee, to eat, to see an exhibition, a video premier or a baroque opera; There is something for everybody.
The prices are modest, service friendly and the food is really, really good.
On a visit to Minksy’s Drag Bar this year, Fanny Dazzler and her mate said that they could tell that our friends were skateboarders owing to the smell of pot noodle and disappointment.
– Pop in to Spit & Sawdust to smell neither.
