Cardiff Nightlife

November 17, 2017

However you like to unwind in the evening, the capital city of Cardiff has a superb range of nightlife opportunities to suit every lifestyle. Enjoy a quiet drink in a cocktail bar, dance the night away in a club, rub shoulders with the rich and famous in a restaurant or watch a show at one of the many theatres.

The city centre is within walking distance of our apartments at Cathedral House and is easily accessed by public transport from our developments coming soon to the Vale of Glamorgan; Horizon in Ogmore-by-Sea and Cottrell Green in Bonvilston.

Restaurants:

Cardiff offers a wide selection of culinary delights from independent restaurants to national chains and from home cooked traditional Welsh food to Italian, Portuguese and Chinese fare. Choose to be surrounded by the bright lights of the city with a meal in popular dining areas such as Mill Lane, the Brewery Quarter or the new St David’s 2 Centre or escape to the tranquil setting of Cardiff Bay for a romantic meal for 2 at Mermaid Quay or a family night at the Red Dragon Centre. Award-winning restaurants such as The Clink, The Old Custom House and Chapel 1877 are highly recommended.

Pubs, bars and clubs:

Join the thousands of people who descend on St Mary Street opposite Cardiff Castle on a Saturday night or choose from one of the 4 quarters of the city;

  • West End – The heart of Cardiff’s nightlife with lots of takeaways lining the cosmopolitan streets and lanes, great for outdoor drinking.
  • East End – Home to popular nightclubs Pryzm, Glam and Tiger Tiger, this area is being transformed into Cardiff’s second main nightlife district.
  • Castle Quarter – With Cardiff Castle as your backdrop this is the trendier part of Cardiff. Quaint and independent bars provide a great atmosphere.
  • Cardiff Bay: The Waterfront – Enjoy a drink on one of the many balconies with views of the water to the barrage and Penarth, idyllic.

Entertainment:

Typical of a city centre Cardiff has many cinema’s, bowling alleys, an ice skating rink and late night shopping but if sitting back and relaxing is more your thing, the many theatres and concert venues in the town centre offer a wide variety of shows and entertainment. The architecturally beautiful Wales Millennium Centre and the historical New Theatre play host to shows from London’s West End and Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena and St David’s Hall attract music acts such as Shirley Bassey, One Direction, Katherine Jenkins and Tom Jones. The Principality Stadium is not only home to the Welsh rugby team, host to footballing events for Wales’ national team and world sporting events but also hosts music events such as Beyoncé and Rod Stewart and our apartments at Cathedral House offer great views over the stadium.
