Owner description: The Bootlegger Est. 01.03.2014 29,307 days after prohibition ended,The Bootlegger family opened their doors in their first bar in Bristol, since then the family has carried on it's journey heading west, opening it's doors in Cardiff, back to where the minds who conceived the idea grew up. There's still a lot more to come from the Bootlegger family who will spread their wings more so in future times to come.

Just wanted to write a review to cover my last 3 or 4 visits here this year. Great place, great cocktails, fantastic staff, great music
Fair play to owner, Lee Miller and his staff, what a top bar in Cardiff

We did find this as a result of trip advisor and as it is round the corner from the holiday Inn we popped in.

Enterance looks like a door and you go up stairs to a shabby chic environment. The cocktail selection is large and with the 2 for £10 happy hour quite reasonable. Tables mixtures of sofas and high tables. Was early and enjoyable atmosphere despite only being 20 of us in the venue. Staff were efficient and pulled together the drinks in a short time. Will go again

Fantastique venue, cocktails are to die for. Plus 2 for 10 all night in the weekday and you can mix and match. That’s rare these days. I highly recommend

Been here a few times with my girlfriend as well as with friends and never had anything short of exceptional cocktails and great service, as well as being a nice setting. The cocktail range is to my mind the most interesting in Cardiff, as they have several of their own as well as twists on more common one’s.

We actually reserved a table for a Six Nations match - the manager responded to my Facebook enquiry within 20 minutes and was very helpful - and had a fantastic time. The 2 for £10 offer running most of the time makes drinking here fantastic value, with the only negative being you can’t get a bag of crisps to soak up some of the delicious drinks!!

I ha been planning on coming here for a while but I ally made it this weekend. I'm so glad we did!
It wa very busy with a lovely atmosphere and really nice decor.
Wouldn't normally order cocktails on a match day but they looke lovely and they were. We had a selection (can't remember there names) and they were all lush, even though in plastic glassware due to the rugby the serves were still really good with fruit garnishes to match and also the staff were quick to serve them Ned really friendly.
100% will be returning!!
