The Venue

Buffalo is one of Cardiff’s most favoured laid-back retreats. Vintage lounge meets live music venue meets sun-drenched beer garden in the heart of the capital’s city centre. A Cardiff institution since 2005.






Bar, Kitchen & Live Venue

We mix our passion for expertly crafted cocktails with our love of great music and homemade food, 7 days a week. You’ll find Buffalo nestled in a mid-18th-century terraced house, just off the bustle of Queen Street in Cardiff City Centre.

By day, our ground-floor cosy lounge bar is the ideal meeting place for lunch, coffee and after-work drinks, with a mixture of table and sofa seating and quirky decor. Our back bar is well stocked with craft beers, fine wines and an array of familiar and unusual spirits.

Take full advantage of our weekly offers, including 2-4-1 cocktails (Monday-Saturday, 5pm-Midnight), B Loyal drinks and 50% off burgers on Mondays.

By twilight, Buffalo becomes a place to let yourself go and party, with live music events and regular weekend DJs across both floors, spinning into the early hours. Buffalo is renowned for being one of the longest standing independent venues in Cardiff to cultivate new and undiscovered talent, as well as attracting some of the finest acts from around the world.

Combined with fresh fruit cocktails, locally-sourced food and great music, our sun-trapping cocktail garden tops Buffalo as a ‘real city gem.’ With large social seating, VIP Booth and festoon lighting, our garden is the perfect place to soak up the atmosphere and relax in the sun or shade, day and night, all year round.
