Cardiff Arts Institute

29 Park Place Cardiff CF10 3BA

From the outside, the Cardiff Arts Institute looks pretty much like any other residential property along this street, but step inside and you’ll find a sociable cafe-bar and entertainment venue offering a dynamic programme of art and music. The ground floor is occupied by a long bar, with tables along one side piled high with board games, lego and suchlike for kids (or adults), and where you can grab snacks and light meals throughout the day. Adjacent to the bar is a small library-like area; a great place to kick back with a coffee and a bestseller. The first floor is given over to art and music, with regular exhibitions, multimedia events and live music staged most days of the week; musically, Wednesdays are devoted to acoustic sessions, DJs rule the roost on Fridays, and Saturdays are reserved for live bands.
