Swansea

Swansea has established its nightlife credentials with a slew of popular nightclubs. Now, ultra-trendy bars, restaurants and pubs are popping up alongside them too.

Cool bars to try in Swansea

Right on the city’s famous Wind Street, which heaves with clubbers on the weekends, is Flickering Light. A mishmash of vintage curiosities – including a 1950s truck at the bar – this quirky venue offers a cool mix of cocktails for a trendy, super-stylish clientele.

Copper on Castle Street is a bar and coffee shop with its own microbrewery which also makes cakes using its own beer. The playful atmosphere includes ping-pong and a giant Jenga set. Not too far away, in the famous Uplands Crescent, a number of cool venues can be found, including BrewStone which prides itself on its craft beers and stunning décor, and Noah’s Yard. Famous locally for frequently changing its sign to convey a quirky message or too, this crowd favourite is often packed. If you manage to get a seat, sip wine, tea, cocktails, or coffee at the eclectic bar – and don’t miss the pop-up kitchens where you can sample Cuban street food.

Whether your scene is bass-pumping nightclubs or off-the-wall vintage charm, Swansea has something for you.
