Escaping the Royal Wedding IV: Cardiff Nocturne

The next thing I did in Cardiff was a pub/bar crawl, I asked a couple recommendations and leave the rest to lucky or as a musician would say we play it by ear. The first stop was the Brewery, a quarter in the city centre where the old Brains brewery was located, the place The Yard, a modern pub with industrial atmosphere. After a dark Brains I started my way through St Mary Street until Cafe Jazz, a restaurant with live music, where I enjoyed a pint of Guinness while listening a trio playing jazz classics.

After hearing jazz I did a quick stop in The Prince of Wales, a classic English pub which was a theatre and later transformed into a pub. I kept going north until Castle Street, where I stopped in Revolution Bar, one of the crowded places in the city centre. Later I took a detour to Trinity Street to go to The Old Library Bar. Finally to end in The Friary Street listening live indie rock at The Live Lounge.

A vibrant night life worthy of any big capital of the world.

Jazz reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Rye” where Elaine is dating a saxophone player.

Elaine: Jerry, you have got to come see him. He is so terrific.
Jerry: Maybe he'll write a song about you.
Elaine: Yeah, right. Like that really matters.
Jerry: So I take it he's sponge worthy?
Elaine: Oh, yeah.
Jerry: Well, he's a musician. I guess they're supposed to be very, you know, uninhibited and free.
Elaine: Well, actually, he's, he's not that way at all.
Jerry: Oh, no?
Elaine: Yeah. In fact, he....
Jerry: Come on. Come on.
Elaine: I don't wanna!
Jerry: Elaine, you're among friends.
Elaine: Well, actually, he, um, doesn't really like to do everything.
Jerry: Oh!
Elaine: Yeah. It's surprising.
Jerry: Yes, it is. It is surprising. Does that bother you?
Elaine: No. No, it doesn't bother me. I mean, it would be nice. I'm not gonna lie to you and say it wouldn't be nice.
Jerry: Sure. Why not? You're there.
Elaine: Exactly.
