Expect a glamourous feel to The Pennyroyal when you first walk in. With dimly lit candles and an intimate atmosphere, the bar is great for a date night or a cosy evening with friends. Try their expertly crafted cocktails, all with bespoke names and meanings.

Nestled on St. Mary Street over in the city centre, O'Neill's is a fantastic spot to wet your whistle with a delicious tipple or two, with beers, wines and cocktails on offer. In the way of entertainment, you'll find sports screenings, live music and banging DJs.

A seriously slick haunt on City Road, Conspiracy Lounge is the Cardiff bar you need to check out. From the cool artwork lining the walls to the plush booths and sultry lighting, there's a lot to love about this place. It also has a fantastic selection of cocktails, milkshakes and shisha.

Club 29 is bringing some of the best in live music, late-night DJs and affordable beer to Cardiff, including bottomless disco brunches come the weekend. Better yet, the menu throughout the week will keep you filled up with hearty American fare like burgers and loaded fries.

Yard Bar and Kitchen

A party hangout in the ever bustling St Mary Street, Yard Bar and Kitchen is a corker of a destination for affordable boozing and laid back fun. From live music and sports, to cocktails, craft beer and brekkie, plus the space for many a private party, catch the antics for a top night out.

A cutesy independent, sitting pretty on Mill Lane, Pitch is a must-try destination for cocktails and dining alike. With their rustic Scandi-style edge, Pitch makes for a darling evening of seasonably sourced plates, drinking on the patio, lush cocktails and early evening date nights.
