Cardiff’s top date locations

Wondering where to take that someone special on a student budget?


Winter Wonderland

Take advantage of this seasonal treat and show off your moves on the ice rink. There’s also a bar which is never a bad idea on a date.

Urban Tap House

More booze than you could imagine. Try their speciality ales and slur the night away with someone special.

Barry Island

If Gavin and Stacey found love here so can you. Also a good one for the cash strapped as you can spend under a fiver on the slot machines and still buy chips. Romantic.

Cardiff Castle

Top haunt for horny historians. There are also lots of tunnels to get to know each other better in.

Revs de Cuba

If salsa or rum is your thing then look no further than Revs de Cuba. Great atmosphere and 2-4-1 cocktails before 7pm will ensure the conversation flows.

The North Star

Worried your date might have an appetite bigger than your budget? The North Star’s Man vs Food challenges will see off even the heartiest of eaters.
