We are proud to provide the rock and metal masses of Cardiff (and beyond!) with a pure-rock home whose atmosphere is unsurpassed, delivering relentless storms of the finest tunes from way back when to current day in a killer venue, with huge soundsystem and a sweet bar!
Bogiez is open; Tuesday to Friday – 12pm til late – Sunday – 6pm til late! We are located on Kingsway which is directly opposite Cardiff Castle. Some will know our venue as the former location of the Cardiff Barfly (and the old Rose & Crown / Coopers way before that!)
Below is a little bit of history about Bogiez.
The original Bogiez was born many moons ago (in the 80′s!) on Penarth Road in Cardiff – A club that will long be remembered as a core part of Cardiff’s Rock and Metal scene.
Sadly, after many years, the original Bogiez had to come to end. From this time on a great void was left in the Cardiff rock scene, with very few places for like-minded rocking folk to gather.
People longed for the return of Bogiez, and some years later – that day came. On one cold, stormy November night, several dark wizards gathered. Wielding their corrupt metal magic, they resurrected the legendary spirit of Bogiez that had lingered since it’s old home had closed.
Bogiez was reborn in it’s new incarnation at the Engine Room in Cardiff Bay!
Resurrected from the ashes of its former self (quite literally!), Bogiez was back, reconstructed for the modern age with one simple yet profound goal – To once again offer South Wales a much needed night full of music with POWER!
Shortly after the rebirth of Bogiez, it’s new home was overcome by forces that the dark Wizards had not fortold and Bogiez was once again searching for a new home…
Immediately the Dark Ones gathered in search of a new and sacred ground to accommodate Bogiez, and immediately, they found it!
Once hallowed ground, a place long guarded by the spirits of Rock & Roll – The Point, a gothic style, stone built church of rock, erected over a 100 years ago became the new vessel that would house Bogiez.
After over 4 years of some righteous rockin’ at The Point, the sad closure of the venue in 2009 forced Bogiez to once again search for a new home.
After a great deal of interest from several awesome venues in Cardiff City Centre, and masses of public support, Bogiez relocated temporarily to “The Venue” in Cardiff City Centre where it remained for 6 months.
In October of the same year, Bogiez moved to the Millennium Music Hall, part of the Millennium Plaza.
In February of 2011 after many months of planning (and many years of searching) Bogiez made its single biggest announcement to the South Wales massive, revealing it had acquired its own premises and would be evolving into a full-time rock bar and live music venue.
Open 6 days a week, Bogiez stands tall as Cardiff’s home of rock and alternative music, bringing an array of rock, heavy metal and alternative club nights and events as well as providing a home to the rock masses during the daytime as a hard rockin’ bar.
So, now you’ve read the tale of Bogiez, Cardiff’s longest running and best rock club, why not pay us a visit?
