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.

Fantastic music, friendly atmosphere, lovely bar staff, brilliant cocktails and happy hour is wonderful (especially as they let you mix and match on the 2 for £10 offer which is so unusual).... absolutely love it here!! Would come back whenever we’re in Cardiff.

Awesome cocktails. Great atmosphere. And great service by James, who even managed to get my husband round the bar for a photo (he hates photos).

Firstly, Daniel. Secondly, the cocktails Daniel makes. Finally, the music. I couldn’t recommend this bar more, it’s absolutely amazing for a dance and to be around other people who just want to dance! But, like, actually dance. The drinks are SO delicious. As are the...More
