Cardiff bar The Gravity Station is to reopen at new premises across town after recently being “locked out” of their former venue following a dispute with their landlord.
On Friday, May 27 the popular booze business posted a message explaining to customers why they were suddenly no longer able to trade from their former site on Barrack Lane in Cardiff’s city centre.
“We have been involved with a financial dispute with our landlord, Linc Cymru, for a little while,” wrote owner Jim Swidenbank on both The Gravity Station’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
“And it would appear that rather than continuing discussions to a resolution mutually beneficial to all parties, they have taken the unbelievably irrational decision to lock us out of the premises at this time without prior warning or communicating their intentions to us.”
Morning folks… Pretty rubbish start to our weekend to say the least Watch this space for updates. Jim. pic.twitter.com/Pf7n6hmWCL

However, while Linc Cymru cited the decision to abruptly end the lease was due to non-payment of rent, earlier this week The Gravity Station announced that, as of Saturday, June 11, they’d be taking up residence at The Loft at The Full Moon on Womanby Street.

Having opened in February 2014 , the company specialised in craft ales – both on tap and bottled – from all over Wales and the rest of the world.
Customers can also sample beers at the premises.
