Tips for places to go in Cardiff for unforgettable nights out!
Cardiff is arguably Wales' best destination for partygoers seeking a rich and varied nightlife. The city is a popular choice for stag and hen parties from across the UK, and its diverse range of venues means there really is a restaurant, bar or club to suit all tastes and budgets. Compared with other forms of transport hiring a stretched limousine can provide an affordable and convenient way to travel between your chosen venues during a night out while adding some additional comfort and atmosphere to your special occasion. We list our favourite nightspots that could be visited as part of an evening's booking with The Limo People.
Cardiff's choice of licensed venues has grown rapidly in the last ten years but one of the best contemporary, and perhaps most iconic, places to stop for good drinks and atmosphere is Clwb Ifor Bach, located on Womanby Street. Established 30 years ago, Clwb Ifor Bach (Welsh for 'Little Ivor's club') started life as a social centre for Welsh speakers and has since expanded to host popular club nights with music from a huge range of genres including reggae, hip-hop, dance, drum and bass and dubstep.
Much of the Castle district of the city now lies in the shadows of the Principality Stadium but the area has managed to retains its historic appearance while offering several great contemporary pubs and clubs including the Gatekeeper, Revolution and Dempseys, an Irish bar that enjoys a reputation for its friendly staff and live music on Friday nights, and the Model Inn and City Arms, both on Quay Street.
The West End is the heart of Cardiff's nightlife and the number and size of venues has grown rapidly in recent years. Thanks in part to the city's large student population, many of the venues along St Mary Street and Wharton Street are part of larger national chains, such as O'Neill's, Walkabout, Flares, Reflex and Wetherspoons, where food and drink prices are set accordingly.
The focal point of the east end is Greyfriars Road, Park Place and The Friary. Considered the second most popular area for a night out, PRYZM has a multi-room facility with a full calendar of different theme nights throughout the year and, for hen parties seeking something a little different, Minsky's Showbar on Cathedral Walk hosts drag comedy nights on Fridays and Saturdays.
Cardiff Bay has enjoyed a multi-million pound regeneration that has transformed the waterfront area of the city beyond recognition. New housing and commercial properties have injected new life into a formerly largely-derelict suburb, and the marine style setting of Mermaid Quay now hosts many independent and national bars and restaurants. Terra Nova and Salt offer great views across the new development, and are particularly good for outdoor dining and drinking. There are also plenty of other choices when it comes to eating out, from Eddie's Diner (a rock 'n' roll style American diner), Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Wagamamas to restaurants serving Indian, Chinese, Turkish and Italian dishes.
Our fleet of super stretched limousines include all that you need for a party atmosphere on the road, with great features such as disco lighting, top of the range audio systems and a bar area with ice bucket and complimentary bubbly (terms apply). We offer a multiple address pick up and drop off service so everyone gets chauffeured home in safety and, with competitively priced one-way, return and all night travel packages, the cost per person can work out favourably compared to using multiple minicabs or buying train and bus tickets.
One call can take care of your travel requirements, leaving you with plenty of time to pick your favourite venues!
