Drinks and Nightlife
Wherever you pick for your Cardiff hotel, there are always a large choice of bars to drink and dance away the night. We like Bar Floyd, above a tattoo parlour, known for its choice of over 250 spirits. If it’s real ales you’re after then Bar Cwtch is for you. Meaning ‘Cuddle’ in Welsh and located in scenic Cardiff Bay, you can order a variety of ales and wines, all beside a cosy open fire. If you’re staying in one of Cardiff’s hotels near the city centre and feel the need to dance, walk down to St Mary Street, known for its lively and eclectic nightclubs.
With a diverse music scene the locals are proud of, it’s quite common to stay in a cheap Cardiff hotel for a night after catching a show so you don’t miss out on any fun. Club Ifor Bach hosts anything from Garage DJ sets to Garage rock bands, from local heroes (Super Furry Animals) to secret shows and pre-superstardom acts (The Strokes and Coldplay). However if you want the convenience of everything under one roof, then make sure to visit 10 Feet Tall, a three story building dedicated to food, drink, relaxing and dancing.
The Welsh love their rugby and boxing, with events regularly being held in many of Cardiff’s venues. Now you can add football to that list, with the Millennium Stadium being host to the FA cup and Cardiff City Football Club highly ranked in the FA’s football leagues. Grab tickets to a match and cheer as loud as the locals.
If you missed out on a ticket to Glastonbury, don’t worry; Cardiff’s Glasnost Festival is a well-known alternative, showing music, art and theatre. Cardiff Hub Street Festival brings together the best of local musical talent and showcases them all over an August weekend. During a weekend in July, the Cardiff International Food and Drink Festival, takes place in Cardiff bay, where, as the name suggests, there’s a mouth-watering choice of food and drink from local, national and international plates.
Food and Drink
Staying in one of the hotels in Cardiff but wanting more than the kitchen offer? Check out, The Goat Major, you can order from its food menu consisting solely of pies, and wash them down with locally brewed cask ale. Pettigrew Tea Rooms, right near Cardiff Castle is pleasant, serving Welsh tea and light bites within its traditional décor. Then there’s Riverside Market, found on Fitzhamon embankment. It’s a great place to buy cheap fresh ingredients, produced locally.
