I’ve been to this small venue for unusual music events a few times and always enjoyed the experience. It’s not cheap nor is it overly expensive and if you’re up for diverse music in an intimate venue then this is for you. A good atmosphere...More

It is a very small cosy place with a decent out door area. They quite often present interesting bands and DJ and I would say it is worth to visit if you are in Cardiff.

We went here for the first time to see a hip hop artist. They were very late, and while they didn't announce anything in the bar, they did update Facebook. The venue is quaint and intimate. The bar sells off brand drinks, so not overly...More

Always something fun and amazing going on at gwdi, can get overcrowded easily though, and there ain't enough chairs and tables when you want to watch live music or an act. But it's a small venue and it gets a lot of charm for being...More

I live in Cardiff and this is one of my regular haunts. I love Gwdihw for its music, the people and the great drinks selection. The events team put together a varied and exciting programme from themed quizzes (like Northern Lingo Bingo) to chilled folk...More
