Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff

4.1
#36 of 79 in Nightlife in Cardiff
Clwb Ifor Bach (Welsh pronunciation: [ˈklʊb ˈivɔr ˈbaːχ], meaning Little Ivor's Club) is a Cardiff nightclub, music venue, Welsh-language club and community centre. It is known to the Cardiff Welsh-speaking community as Clwb (English: Club) and is often known by others on the Cardiff music scene as The Welsh Club.


Clwb Ifor Bach is used as a social centre by Welsh speaking people in Cardiff, as well as by many non-Welsh speakers. Until recent years, the club had a number of regular members only nights. This policy has been discontinued. Clwb Ifor Bach is the focal point for many Welsh-medium organisations and events in the area: social, educational, sporting and otherwise. English and Welsh are spoken equally throughout the club, and most staff are required to be bilingual. No anti-Welsh sentiment is tolerated in the club.

  • Great Club with 2 scenes which promote Welsh music and some really recent indie music. Clean premises, huge smoking area, not-killing drinks prices, young and friendly staff. One minus - should get some more local beer
  • A unique club to Wales that often shows local bands and djs. Three floors of different dance floors, including bars with a brilliant atmosphere. If you're into alternative and indie music this is the place for you, with songs such as Panic at the Disco and Tame impala guaranteed to be played. Drinks are more on the higher end of the cost, but you're given student discount for access into the club.
