Overview

Cardiff's original showbar. Nestled in the heart of the city centre (St Davids) entertaining the crowds for over 20 years. Open Monday to Saturday with food, snacks & lunches during the daytime. Friday & Saturday nights Wales' finest take to the stage for song, dance & comedy. A hugely popular choice for hens & stags, birthdays or just a night out in town. Booking isn't necessary although reserved seating does require pre-booking.
