GO Clubbing In Cardiff

Clubbing in Cardiff Cardiff is undoubtedly the best place to go in Wales for night on the town as it has a huge selection of top nightclubs to suit everyone’s taste in music.

For the ultimate in clubbing why not check out Liquid [map], the city’s only official superclub situated on St Mary Street, where you’ll find most of Cardiff's hip-and-happening clubs. This club – part of a national chain – has been designed to meet the needs of a 21st century clubber with bright interior, air-conditioning, lasers and giant lava lamps. Funky house and dance music is played here every weekend and on Saturday nights you can usually catch a glimpse of a top DJ.

One of Cardiff’s hottest clubs of the moment is Vision 2K [map] on Queen Street, which, with a capacity of 1,500 and excellent dance, house and garage music, is the place for serious clubbers to be seen. Fridays is the most popular night here, when wild costumes, spiky hair and loud music are all the rage for Enter the Dragon. And for those who don’t like to go home ‘til dawn, the club is open well into the early hours.

Another of the Welsh capital’s favourite clubs is Zeus [map] on Greyfriars Road, which comes complete with 2000-capacity, six bars, two dance floors and a VIP bar for over 25s. Thursdays feature an award-winning 70s night, while Friday nights generally have a Latino theme and Saturdays offer the best tunes from the 60s, 70s and 80s as well as the latest dance music.

As the Welsh capital it seems only fair that Cardiff should have a club to rival London’s best nightspots and that comes in the form of the Emporium Nightclub [map] on High Street. Sister to the famous London Emporium, this club regularly features big name DJ's and has gained a reputation as one of the leading underground clubs in the South West. The music here ranges from R ‘n’ B to House.

If it's indie music you’re after then head to the Metropolitan Club [map] in the heart of the city, which also features live bands on some nights. With a capacity of 400, the club is often crowded and is a great favourite with the city's students - probably because of the many drinks promotions on throughout the week.

One of the longest established clubs in Cardiff, The Wine Press [map] is located close to the bus and train stations in the city centre. It attracts an older clientele than many of its rival clubs and features a candle-lit zone for chilling out and a large dance floor. Mondays and Thursdays are rhythm, blues and soul nights, while on Tuesdays there's karaoke, Wednesdays feature live music and at the weekends there's dance music to suit every taste.

Other top clubs in Cardiff city centre include Creation on Park Place [map], a state-of-the-art club with lots of rooms and a variety of music every night, and Clwb Ifor Bach [map] on Womanby Street, which plays great dance and house music.

Tucked down a little arcade in central Cardiff you’ll find Kiwis [map], a fashionable weekend haunt for locals comprising of a large ground-floor bar with plenty of seating and a first floor nightclub.

For those who want to head out of the city centre for their night out, why not try Cardiff Bay’s first nightclub Evolution [map], part of the swanky Atlantic Wharf Leisure Village [map]. This is the place to come if you want to spend the whole night partying as it has six bars, plenty of seating, smart facilities and regular drinks promotions to ensure it's always full to bursting.

The complex also boasts a cinema, bowling alley and several pubs if you want somewhere to go first, and the club runs a free bus service from the city centre, from 9.15:00pm outside the New Theatre, with return trips from 1am.
