Pop your gals on the guestlist and make the most of that last night of single life at Tiger Tiger, the city’s party palace with no less than 7 unique rooms to party hard in. Cross through the Blanca champagne lounge, the tropical hideaway that is Kanaloa and even a Groovy Wonderland with 80s tunes and a flashing dance floor (yes), there’s a number of hen party packages to help you plan your perfect party.
Be At One? More like Be At Fun (really sorry). Terrible wordplays aside, this buzzing cocktail bar would make an excellent hen do destination. The cocktail masterclass is one of the best hen do activities Cardiff has to offer, or you could just book out an area and spoil the bride-to-be with luscious drinks from their extensive back bar. Happy Hour runs from 2pm to 7pm which should set you up just right for a big Saturday night on the town!
Cheap drinks and cheesy tunes aren’t for everybody, and The Dead Canary is for those groups seeking something completely different to the usual hen party set-up. One of the city’s coolest venues, bring your girls along for top of the range cocktails made up of ingredients muddled up in their on-site lab. There’s table service and a live playlist of jazz, folk and 50’s inspired tunes to enjoy in Grade II-listed comfort - definitely one to consider for those seeking alternative hen party ideas in Cardiff.
Another cracking bar for a hen do in Cardiff is Revolution, which sits right in amongst the heart of the city’s nightlife scene opposite the Castle. Come on a Friday if you can - that’s when the Night Market offers 2-4-1 selected cocktails, ping pong, darts and DJs - and there’s an instructive but also seriously fun masterclass party if you’re going down the activity route.
With cheesy tunes, jagerbombs aplenty and bookable private booths, it’s almost as though Popworld was tailor-made for Cardiff hen do groups. This is the place to let your wild side run free; a nightclub with candy-coloured walls and a light up dance floor for when you inevitably end up cutting shapes to the Macarena later. With lots of great bars and clubs nearby, why not tie this one in as part of a hen party bar crawl through town?
Another of the best clubs for a hen do in Cardiff is PRYZM, the huge super-club in the heart of the city. Comprised of 10 bars across 7 rooms, these guys are well practiced in hosting hen parties and can offer all the VIP treatment including special booths, private suites, bottles of bubbly and a constant flow of cocktails. Start with a few giggles at the Jongleurs Comedy Club beforehand or keep the focus on drinks and dancing into the early hours at one of the best clubs in Cardiff.
If only the most opulent and classy clubs will do for your Cardiff hen party, it’s got to be Glam. This is the city’s high-end clubbing spot on Greyfriars Road, known for attracting a VIP clientele who get dressed up to the nines to indulge in the sleek ambience of their exclusive lounge. The music policy is varied but you’ll likely hear plenty of RnB, hip-hop and house tunes from the state-of-the-art Funktion One soundsystem.
A hen night in Cardiff needn’t be all about the cocktail bars and the glamorous clubs, either. There’s also lots of tasty spots to head for dinner as well, and The Cosy Club would make a great spot to get the shenanigans started. This popular restaurant offers a party menu where you and your girls can enjoy tapas to share and a main meal for £17.95, before heading on to check out the city centre’s various drinking dens.
