The Bootlegger Cardiff is a stylish lounge with an American speakeasy vibe offering craft cocktails & live music. Well-crafted cocktails and brews all within a live music environment – Swing, Blues, Rock n Roll, Jazz, and Soul. The Bootlegger Cardiff is decorated with unique décor inspired by the end of Prohibition, such as repurposed wood, battered metal, and local graffiti art. Better yet, DJs and live music add even more of a quirky party vibe to a night out here. The Bootlegger stands boldly amid other independent venues on Womanby Street, a street recognized for its strong support for live music. This vast setting will enchant you with its joys up and down stairs, hidden behind a little inconspicuous street facade. Reclaimed wood, hammered metal, and local graffiti work create a trendy yet cozy ambiance that harkens back to a period when Prohibition reigned supreme.
Beats and sounds float through the doors, encouraging you to enter the inner sanctum of our lovely venue. Live music and DJs light up the night, allowing you to drink, dance, and marvel at The Bootlegger’s delights. We had a terrific night, had fantastic cocktails, and appreciated the environment. Thank you again for a beautiful experience; we shall return. I reserved the Bootlegger for my companion and me for Friday night. It was pretty crowded, but I’m pleased I booked since it ensured we got a seat. I liked the ambiance here, and the drinks selection was well-executed. The cocktails were beautiful, and the bartenders enjoyed crafting them. The live music was predominantly northern soul/motown, and you couldn’t help but feel good about the whole thing.
We had such a good time! Icame with my gf to celebrate our anniversary, and despite scheduling at the last minute, we could nab a table in the exact position within the bar, which was incredibly pleasant. When I entered, I was greeted by a friendly man named Salvatore Colloca, who made me and my girlfriend feel extremely special. He gladly assigned us to our seats and explained everything about the bar and drinks menu, taking the time to go through every page of the cocktail list. I greatly appreciated his time and work on this; he is a valuable member of your team! He has excellent communication abilities and made us laugh as well! He made our night memorable, and I will certainly come back! A fantastic bar with a fantastic staff!
