Why we love it

Most of Cardiff's townhouse eye candy has long been ringfenced by the nearby university or reimagined in nondescript office chic by well-to-do businesses. But not the sharp red bricks, wrought iron period balcony and sun-drenched hidden garden retreat of this grade II listed building. Oh no.

Set cheek by jowl with the city centre's thicket of concrete commercialism (but standing a lightyear apart from neighbouring chains) Buffalo is a welcome departure from the norm in this part of town - the sort of eye-catching indie that'll have you saying "bi-son" to the likes of Wetherspoons' Central Bar across the road in no time at all.

Serving up an adventurous variety of beers, an easy-drinking selection of cocktails laden with speciality spirits (but, thankfully, avoiding any needless pretence) and a satisfyingly uncomplicated food offering, Buffalo's mix of proper nourishment and vibe-led lounge-chiq does "well-deserved chilling" pretty damn well.

The tunes here are made with movement in mind (think jazzy EDM by day and lively local bands or DJs by night) and, as the lights begin to dim, afternoon regulars morph into evening revellers looking to make the al-fresco-most of the venue's heated cocktail garden until the wee small hours. In case you were wandering, Buffalo Bar isn't afraid of a party.

Thanks to its crossover aesthetic (this is what it would feel like if a lounge, a bar and a club released a greatest hits album), Buffalo is a proudly independent, unshackled sort of place. Perfect, we think, for a Wriggler or two.

Wriggle Highlights

  • Big burgers, craft beers and a license to chill
  • One of Cardiff's most hidden (and most central) al-fresco spaces
  • Comedy, live music, eclectic events and DJ shows - Buffalo's always got something going on
