This is one of my favourite places to go on a night out. Always good tunes and a great vibe, although it can get pretty hot inside so dress to sweat

Over 16 event no ID was required on entry or at the bar. Staff on the door were less than friendly. The bar staff upstairs were fantastic. Very helpful and friendly. The venue was great and good location. Toilets were clean too.

I was booked by a night called 'Time Flies' to take photos at the event on Friday 3rd Feb 2017. Great venue and sound system. Super friendly crowd and great door/security staff. Very good night indeed with a 4am finish

A small music venue which draws in emerging talent from the music industry with names such as The Wonder Years and Neck Deep playing. Stage diving encouraged, music gets loud and drinks are reasonably priced.

Clwb Ifor Bach, or merely Clwb, is a great little venue. It hosts a great range of smaller gigs in an intimate setting, and hosts a wide and diverse range of gigs from Welsh musicians to alt/indie chart artists. I've seen quite a few gigs...More
