  • Attended one of Gwdihw's last nights at end of January 2019, at least in its present location. It's a fun bar with a mix of music, an OK drink selection, reasonable prices and entry. The crowd was mainly young but with a range of ages, and the music included rappers, inspired DJing and a live band that came on after my bedtime. Sad for Cardiff to lose a solid venue and overall fun place.
  • One of my favourite venues in the city centre. Great music, great people. It has a really special vibe.
